A woman center stage tapping a pen on a notebook, thinking. Someone rides by on a bicycle. A couple pass by holding hands. A kid chases after an errant soccer ball. A clock on a nearby church tolls the hour.
Play a Day: Party’s Over
A table laden with empty cups, dirty dishes, and pointed party hats. Someone flicks off the overhead light.
