A Play

By Jaime James

Characters:

Alpha, age 12, a wolf, best friends with Lisa.

Lisa, age 14, a rabbit, Alpha’s best friend.

Setting: A cold winter day 9 o’clock in the morning, in the forest by the lake. This is where the treaty of wolves and rabbits is established. Tall pine trees covered in snow, six-inch deep snow, very quiet.

At rise: Alpha and Lisa are sitting down to have a conversation.

Alpha

I was thinking about making a treaty between wolves and rabbits because if you get killed, I would be devastated.

Lisa

I would be upset if you died, too. And that’s a great idea—but would your pack agree to this, and how would they act on this?

Alpha

I will make sure nothing is going to happen, so wolves and rabbits will be one.

Lisa

I have faith in you ‘cause you’re my long time friend. You didn’t have to make a treaty.

Alpha

All I want to do is rid all responsibility as pack leader because I want to explore new places for myself.

Lisa

No. I don’t want you to leave because I like you.

Alpha

Okay. That’s cool and all, but I want to leave…I want to wander the world.

Lisa

I mean—I like you in a romantic way.

Alpha

I am shocked—and I can understand that—but I can’t just throw away my happiness for someone else’s.

Lisa

But how can you leave when you have to watch over your pack?
