Heat Wave

Interior Night Scene. Concerned Husband sits in profile at metal desk, stage left. He is wearing a white T-shirt and bright red Patagonia boxers. His face is illuminated by the glow of a gigantic iMac. Wife with MS is seated on leather couch, stage right, facing audience. She is wearing a pale blue cotton nightshirt. Her brand new Malcolm X style bi-focals are illuminated by the MacBook open on her lap.
Concerned Husband (still facing iMac): “We should look into getting you one of those refrigerator vests….”
Wife with MS (still facing open MacBook): Silence.
Concerned Husband (still facing iMac): “I know you can hear me.”
Lights dim.
