On This Morning

A very short play in the spirit of the Twilight Zone. A boy wakes up one day to find his family alive but completely unresponsive.

Read Sample

Rajesh bounds down the stairs two at a time. He enters the kitchen to see his father standing by the counter, toast in hand, chewing. His mother is sitting at the table, drinking tea.

RAJESH
There you are! Didn't you hear me? I've been yelling for you. Ma, Jazzy's super tired I guess--

Rajesh notices that his parents haven't noticed him.

RAJESH
Dad?

Rajesh's father continues to chew. Continuously. He makes no other movement.

Rajesh waves a hand in front of his father's face, but gets no reaction.
