Showcase Playhouse Theater
Narrator: Good evening and welcome to Showcase Playhouse Theater. Tonight were pleased to present They Wanted To Fly, a 3 acts play by Cameron Hormel. Wed like to welcome our new sponsor, Nice ass, baby panties. When you hear nice ass, chances are its nice ass, baby. And now Act 1 of They Wanted To Fly.[pleasant music, comes to scene with Myers and Sweeney]
Janet: What are you thinking about?
Toby: Oh you wouldnt understand, youre just a girl.
Janet: Im also you best friend.
Toby: I was thinkin, I wish I could fly.
Janet: You do? So do I!
Janet: More than anything.
Toby: Maybe if we both push hard enough, we really can fly.
Narrator: That concludes act 1. Ladies and gentlemen, I must apologize most sincerely as apparently there is no such product as Nice ass, baby panties. I have been a victim of a hoax. In act 2 of They wanted to fly, Toby and Janet have grown into teenagers. Their friendship has blossomed into sexual awareness, but 1 thing has remained the same: their desire to fly. [music, jumps to scene]
Janet: Boy when you stand up here and wave your arms, it almost feels like youre flying.
Toby: It does doesnt it? [laughs]
Janet: That was fun.
Toby: Janet, do you think that maybe somehow we really could fly?
Janet: You mean just lift off the ground up into the sky?
Toby: Yea thats exactly what I mean.[music, fades away]
Narrator: I would like to apologize to the good people at nice ass, baby pantyhose. Their product is very real and Im sure an excellent value. In the 3rd and final act of They wanted to fly, many years have passed. Toby and Janet and gone their different ways, but they agree to meet once more at their favorite spot.
Toby: [in wheelchair] Hello Janet.
Janet: Hello Toby.
Toby: I guess you hear about this.
Janet: You tried to fly didnt you?
Toby: They called it attempted suicide.
Janet: Toby, remember when we used to wish we could fly? Maybe we really can.
Toby: Dont make fun damn it! Im stuck in this wheelchair.
Janet: Well maybe that doesnt matter. Maybe nothing matters except that if we want it bad enough, we can fly off together into the sky.
Toby: Wouldnt that be something?[music, fades away]
Narrator: [as he is pulling off his fake moustache] Well that concludes Cameron Hormels They Wanted To Fly. Join us next time for Mr. Hormels latest play, They wanted to get totally nude. Goodnight.
