Sandwich: A Play in 1 Act

YVONNE: Do you want me to make dinner now?

DAN: I am not really hungry.

YVONNE: Well, I am hungry, so I'll just make myself a sandwich. Do you want one?

DAN: No.

YVONNE prepares herself a roast beef and cheese sandwich with mayo on a roll. YVONNE sits down on the couch and takes a bite of the sandwich. DAN sits next to YVONNE and grabs sandwich and takes a bite. YVONNE takes her sandwich back.

YVONNE: Are you sure you don't want a sandwich?

DAN: I don't want one.

DAN takes YVONNE'S sandwich and takes a huge bite. YVONNE gives Dan a dirty look and takes back her sandwich and eats it. DAN takes the sandwich again and eats more of it.

YVONNE: That's the last bite for you.

DAN: You are not good at sharing.

YVONNE: I don't want to share. I want the whole thing. I offered you your own. And I am the one who's hungry.

YVONNE finishes what's left of her sandwich. YVONNE puts away the rest of the cold cuts and mayo in the refrigerator. YVONNE settles down in front of her computer.

15 minutes later.

DAN: Can you make me a sandwich?

The End.

Love the new format - even if the villain is one dimensional. He's an on-the-nosey caricature of everything evil!
