TWO ERAS OF DAVIDwritten byEric Peter SchwartzFirst DraftJanuary 10, 2012Copyright (c) 2011-2012Eric Peter SchwartzAll Rights Reserved
 
At rise the stage is nearly empty except for a 2 sets of tables and two chairs set equally far apartfrom each other. Near the tablesand chairs there are two smallsigns on posts, turned away fromthe audience.There is a mirror effect created.A moment later two eras of David come on stage together. DAVID 1997 and DAVID 2012 (referred tohereafter as 1997 and 2012 in thescript).The two Davids together, walk tothe upstage and then proceed, witha roll of blue painters tape, tobisect the stage in half from backto front, leaving each table and chair set on either side.Both David's move upstage.CARLA and TAYLOR enter. They moveto the tables. Taylor is a young man and Carla is in her early forties. The sit, again, mirroring each other, facing the blue line.Taylor stage right, Carla stageleft.1997 turns back and makes his way to the table, with Carla, with twoglasses.He turns his sign around and itreads "1997". He puts the glassdown and begins to talk to whoever is across the table from him.
1997Okay. Sorry. There you go. Dewar's neat, right?CARLAYeah. Thanks.1997So, how many times have you been here for a conference?CARLAEleven.
 
2.1997Eleven?! Wow. And always here?CARLAEvery January we're here in Scottsdale. The sales conferencein August jumps around. But the VP loves it here. Elevenyears in a row.1997That's amazing.CARLASo, what did you do before you started working salessupport?1997Believe it or not, I used to inventory car wrecks. You know,at a wreck yard. These busted up cars would come in and Iwould determine what was still good and sellable on them.CARLAHow did you wind up here?1997I'm friends with Randy Ledford in Inside Sales. He got me aninterview. I interview pretty well. Plus, between you andme, I think they needed a guy. I think quotas andaffirmative action worked in my favor.CARLAWell, I gotta say, as a rep in the field, we reallyappreciate what you do for us. We'd be lost without someoneto call in to. So, thank you, David.1997No problem.CARLADo you have your eye on sales eventually?1997Nah. I am not built for sales. I like talking to people onthe phone. I like the performance of it, I guess. I'm anactor.CARLAOh! You're an actor.1997Actor/writer really. That's how I know Randy. He does somecommunity theater.CARLAThat's right, he does.
