Yes. (Goodness!) We have written a play. (I have written dialogue. I have wrote-en stage directions.) Would you like to read it? (It is a play! How, oh how, may it be read?) We have the script. (We do?) Yes.


Unnamed Character 1: A character with no name.
Unnamed Character 2: Like character one, but with a hat.

(Characters enter stage right. Exeunt. Characters enter stage left.)

UC 1: Oh, what a pity! I am here, in this world, and I have forgotten my name!

Narrator: Wait, wait, we were supposed to say something (something to say!). It is the future. (The future is now?) The future is the play. (How cutting edge!) It is called a "setting."

UC 2: I understand your pain, for I have no name as well. Or should I say "I do not have a name as well"?

UC 1: A good question, Gus. Why, it is the future, and who knows what sort of grammer is blorqtif! Why, "grammar" could even spelled with an "e"!

UC 2: Truly Lars, a good point. Wait, I forgot the slang we use. Hold on. Now I recall. Truly Lars, a blorqtif point!

Narrator: (A point!)

UC 2: (Continuing the previous sentance he had spoke-in.) But Lars, what do you think the past will bring?

UC 1: Damn you Gus, must you always ask the tough questions?

UC 2: What is the past without tough questions, Lars? Now that it is 1989, and we are about to enter a brand new decade, and soon after a new millenium, many things could happen!

UC 1: I thought it was the future.

Narrator: The future! (The past.) The future! (1989.) The future! (Yes, that is right.)

UC 2: You are correct, Lars, you are correct.

UC 1: So then, Gus, since it is the future, what do you think the nineties will bring? An eager anticipation for the third millenium?

UC 2: Yes, I think it will bring that.

UC 1: But...will it not also bring...The Pain of a Future Past?

Narrator: Oh, by the way, (I have forgot-'n something, we shall mentsch-'n it now.) the name of this play was "The Pain of a Future Past" (it was!) (We love!) (We applaud!). The end. (Theeeeend?) Quite.
