The curtain rises. A spot appears on "Ron".
He's facing the audience. He starts to talk to them.
“Good evening. At 10.23pm on the 1st March, my doctor gave me three months to live. By my calculations, that leaves me with exactly... 111 minutes. So Dawn’s invited the kids around for sausage rolls and Saladas.”
Ron’s wife Dawn, was only told at lunch time that her husband will be dying, so she’s made a head-start on the bubbly to try and cope. The three kids (dutifully) turn up. They’ve all got secrets. Should they finally tell Dad, or should they leave it for another day?
And Ted the Undertaker will turn up in Act Two. TED: “Perhaps you could take me to the deceased.”RON: “I’m the deceased.”TED: “But you’re not deceased.”RON: “I won’t be deceased until ten twenty-three.”TED: “Guess I’ll just have to wait then.”
There will be a complimentary glass of champagne for each attendee so you can toast Ron as be bids his earthly life farewell.
