Center Stage

Enter from the right, or the left, if you prefer, as long as you are on stage when you need to be, during the first act, third scene, just as the rest of the family is settling in to the cabin for their vacation, the one they postponed for so many years in the hopes that everyone would be able to participate in the reunion, in honor of their grandparents, their golden anniversary, the moment when the family started, along with all the accompanying strife and conflict. Remember all of that conflict as you stride on stage, fueled by the argument from last night, and you stand there, center, with all eyes on you, and that’s when you realize you have to pee.
