Careful What You Wish For

Cast of Characters: Wife, Rich Neighbor, Butler, Husband

Scene 1 - Setting: Inside a small cottage. Sparse furnishings include a worn table, two chairs, and a tattered

sofa. Time: Early evening.

WIFE: [Staring into an empty fridge. She pauses to listen to knocks on the door.] I’m not expecting anyone.

[Goes to window, looks out, and puts her hand to her mouth in surprise] What on earth is my rich neighbor

doing at my door? [Opens door to RICH NEIGHBOR, who is dressed elegantly]

RICH NEIGHBOR: [In a dignif ied but rushed manner] How do you do? I am wondering if you can help me. I’m

in need of an extra grill, for I am having a party at this moment, and my grill has just stopped working. May

I borrow yours? My guests are expecting dinner now.

WIFE: [Stunned and staring, begins stuttering her answer] W-Why, of course. I’m happy to help a neighbor

in need.

RICH NEIGHBOR: Thank you. [Gestures to BUTLER to carry it away] You shall be well paid for the loan.

When my Butler returns, tell him whatever it is you wish for, and it is yours. [Turns to exit].

WIFE: [Falls into chair with a bewildered look] I could ask for anything! Should I ask for a seaside vacation?

Or new furniture for this dump? I could use new clothes, or a never-ending gift card to the grocery store.

[BUTLER returns and stands at the door.]

BUTLER: [Tapping his foot and rolling his eyes] Well, Madam?

WIFE: [Nervous and exasperated] I wish my husband was here to help me with this!

BUTLER: [At that moment, a car is heard pulling into the driveway. BUTLER looks over shoulder, disappears

and quickly returns dragging HUSBAND by the collar. HUSBAND looks confused and irritated.] Your wish is

granted! [BUTLER washes his hands in the air and quickly exits.]
