The Gang

by
Thomas & Christine Schrader

*(Sound person plays Intro Music and action takes place for a minute, without dialog.) (An old man slowly walks across the stage, and three youths run onto the stage and beat up the old man. One youth pushes the old man to the floor and a gang member kicks the old man. Then Jason steals the man's wallet. and goes through his pockets. The three youths run across the stage and enter the house.)

JASON


Did you see the look on that old man's face when we grabbed him?

ROB


Did I ever, man! The dude looked scared. Did you hear his head hit the cement when we knocked him to the ground? I thought his head was going to split like a watermelon.

JASON


Yeah, man! We make a great team. (Jason and Rob jump up and hit their hands together-high five slap)

TAYLOR


Ah...it's not hard to beat up an old man. It is like taking milk from a kitten. The old man never knew what hit him.

ROB

How much money did the dude have in his wallet?

JASON


I will look right now. (Jason opens wallet and pulls out the cash and counts the money) Twenty dollars. That lousy old geezer only had twenty dollars on him. (Jason throws the wallet down in disgust)

ROB


He only had twenty dollars! We bruised our knuckles for a lousy twenty dollars. We should have snuffed the old guy!

TAYLOR


He was not worth the effort. I told you not to bother him. Senior citizens live on social security and they don't have much money. My grandfather gets a check and by the time he pays rent and buys groceries and medicine, there is not much left.

JASON


(Jason divides the cash and hands it to Rob and Taylor) Here is your share of the take.

ROB


(Rob counts his money) Hey! I only got six dollars. Where are the other two bucks? That's not fair.

JASON


Life's not fair. Get used to it. I'm the man around here. The extra two bucks stays in my pocket. You got any problem with that Rob? (Jason gives Rob a shove)

ROB


I guess not.

JASON


You got any problem with my keeping the extra cash, Taylor?

TAYLOR


Nope. (Shoves his money into his pocket) What ever you say. It is okay with me.

JASON


That is one of the things I like about you, Taylor. You never give me any trouble.

ROB


(Rob turns to talk to Taylor) You got anything to drink in this dump?

TAYLOR


There might be some cola in the refrigerator.

JASON


What are you waiting for dude? We are thirsty. We worked up a sweat beating up that old man.

OLD MAN


Help me! Please...somebody help me!

JASON


What was that?

ROB


(Rob goes to look out the window) It's the old dude. He's yelling something. (Jason and Taylor look out the window)

OLD MAN


Oh, Jesus! Please help me. My leg hurts and I can't get up. Please, Jesus, send someone to help me. My wife, Peg, will worry if I don't get home soon.

JASON


What is that old man doing?

TAYLOR


I think he is praying.
