Bear faced lie
As promised in the entry from a couple of days ago, here is the 100-word play that Tasha & I submitted to The One Show.
The idea for this came from the Royal Court Theatre, who have a website dedicated to the idea here.
BEAR FACED LIE - By Tasha & Dan
A CUSTOMER ENTERS A SHOPFRONT, WHERE A WORKER IS TYPING ON HIS KEYBOARD.
SHOP WORKER: “Good evening. Welcome to The Teddy Bear Company.”
CUSTOMER: “Can you help me? I ordered a bear from you last week. I want to know where it is.”
SHOP WORKER: “Bear with me.”
CUSTOMER: “Right, will do.”
A MINUTE PASSES IN SILENCE AS THE SHOP WORKER CONTINUES TO TYPE.
CUSTOMER: “Erm, Have you found out where my bear is?”
THE WORKER PULLS A BEAR FROM UNDER THE DESK AND PLACES IT IN FRONT OF HIM.
SHOP WORKER: “I’ve just told you. The bear’s with me.”
See? I told you that it was short and sweet. Did I say it was funny? If I did, I apologise for misleading anyone, as it’s not though it does still raise a wry smile with me.
Both Tasha and I failed to watch The One Show to see if we won though I’d assume that someone, somewhere would have told us if we’d been successful.
I have the show on record, but can’t say I’m bothered about watching it (though I must admit I tried to on Friday night but got distracted). I’ve also submitted the entry to the official website, and they seem to publish five or so entries every day, so maybe it’ll pop up there.
