BACKGROUND BAR PEOPLE have changed places some. Some new. Some the same. Some are still in the same place but have more glasses and bottles around them and are obviously drunker. Maybe the bar has more people in it. Maybe it doesn’t depend on the bar and the time.
But KEN and KESEY are getting very drunk.
KEN- Y’ know, I’m gonna make this into one of my screenplays…no – a play first because…
KESEY – Why?
KEN – If I can do it on – wait – what? Why what?
KESEY – Geez. Wait, why don’t you. Ummm…why?
KEN – Why what? What do you mean? Whymakeitintoafucking-
KESEY – Why write about shit before it’s done? Why don’t you write about something already done instead of preying on your real emotions and circumstances and just tooling around with what you already know as opposed to what you don’t? Why play the waiting game and just work with what you know? Maybe that’s why you haven’t really done anythi-
KEN – Why I haven’t done anything- Dude, I’ve done a lot of shit. I have…
KESEY – Yeah, I know what you’ve done, and it’s cool and all, but you’re getting older. Older. Seriously. You talk and talk about stuff and that’s great and all and you have a million good ideas but why not be fucking Da Vinci or Ben Franklin and just be Harper Lee or Catcher In The Rye?
Ken – What? Catcher In the Rye?
Kesey – What ever his name was.
KEN – Is. His name is…
KESEY - Whatever.
