Fifteen years ago, the nation was in the middle of a pandemic and
MARTIN and JENNIFER are stumbling around the theater, looking for the circuit breaker box.
I know it’s around this area. We used to blow circuits all the time, sometimes even in the middle of a show and I’d have to get the lights up and running pretty fast! This old theater...
Here, let me help.
JENNIFER turns the light of her phone on and shines it on the walls, finally ending up on the circuit breaker box on a wall STAGE RIGHT. MARTIN heads over there and switches the circuits on, one by one, revealing a terribly neglected theater. Props are scattered all over the place, the long table and chairs on stage are overturned, curtains are torn and it’s filthy.
MARTIN slowly looks around, obviously emotional. JENNIFER’s surveillance is more objective.
