Final Act
(across background)

Elvis-attired Andy Kaufman

Crowns Hulk Hogan

Folding chair concussing!


(Center-staged, foreground)
Man:

“Can’t afford my funeral

Nobody’s home

Life’s meaningless

Stop with Nostradamus!

Nobody’s coming

Lowman

To cardboard homes

Pozzo not-so Lucky

Words POOF…

polluting wind”

(He crumples script
Then takes out cell;
Texts girlfriend
Exits
Meets her at coffee shop
Offering
Forget-me-nots)
