Gary gave us a script for the boys to perform and for the girls to direct in groups, I am with Karolis, Ryan Smith and Thalia. The script is from a play called “Burying my Brother Under The Pavement” and its about a boy grieving his brothers death.
This is the scene we have picked for “The Breakfast Club”.
- Bag scene
We see Claire looking through Bender’s wallet pictures.
Are all these your girlfriends?
Some of them…
What about the others?
Well, some I consider my girlfriends
and some…I just consider…
Whether or not, I wanna hang out
You don’t believe in just one guy,
Yeah…that’s the way it should be.
Well, not for me…
Bender clearly doesn’t want to answer that. He acts
How come you got so much shit in
How come you got so many
I asked you first…
I dunno…I guess I never throw
Neither do I…
We cut back to where Andrew, Brian and Allison are
sitting, Andrew is looking through Brian’s wallet.
This is the worst fake ID I’ve ever
Do you realize you made yourself
Oh, I know…I know, I goofed it…
What do you need a fake ID for?
(like it’s obvious)
So I can vote!
Allison looks up suddenly.
You wanna see what’s in my bag?
BRIAN & ANDREW
Allison looks hurt and then resentful. Just to spite
them, she dumps the contents of her bag onto the couch.
Lots of stuff comes out.
Holy shit! What is all that stuff?
Do you always carry this much shit
in your bag?
Yeah…I always carry this much shit
…in my bag…You never know when
you may have to jam…
Are you gonna be like a shopping
bag lady? You know like, sit in
alleyways and like talk to buildings
and wear men’s shoes and that kinda
I’ll do what I have to do…
Why do you have to do anything?
My home life is un…satisfying…
So you’re saying you’d subject
yourself to the violent dangers of
the Chicago streets because your
homelife is unsatisfying?
I don’t have to run away and live
in the street…I can run away and,
go to the ocean, I can go to the
country, I can go to the mountains.
I can go to Israel, Africa,
Brian looks at her and then moves over to Andrew.
Andy…you wanna get in on this?
Allison here says, she wants to run
away, because her home life is
Well everyone’s home lives are un-
satisfying…If it wasn’t, people
would live with there parents
Yeah, yeah I understand. But I
think that her’s goes beyond, you
know, what guys like you and me…
consider normal unsatisfying…
Nevermind…forget it, everything’s
Allison starts putting everything back in her purse.
What’s the deal?
No! There’s no deal, Sporto.
Forget it, leave me alone.
Wait a minute, now you’re carrying
all that crap around in your purse.
Either you really wanna run away or
you want people to think you wanna
Allison gets up and walks away.
The girl is an island, with herself.
Our group decided to do this scene because everyone is present in it and it has an even spread lines, I have practiced it and the we have decided to go with an American accent so I will need to work on it.
