Cat Helps Write The Novel — A Play In One Act

Cat Helps Write The Novel — A Play In One Act
by Ari Berk


CAT
[coming into my study]
I have just woken from a nap and would like to help you finish your novel because no one else is home and I am bored.

ME
No.

CAT
[brushing against my leg, whining for me to move so she can get under the desk]
Is this helping?

ME
No.

CAT
[jumping up on desk, pushes carefully ordered papers off with her tail]
Surely this is helping you finish your novel?

ME
No.

CAT
[runs to the stairs and cries as though something miserable has happened]

ME
[getting up and going to the stairs]
What?!?

CAT
[rolling over]
This is my belly. You should rub it.
[I rub the cat's belly. She purrs.]
Is this helping you finish your novel?

ME
No.

CAT
I think there's just no helping some people.

ME
Get out.

CAT
What time is Kris coming home?

ME
Get out.

CAT
Has *any* part of this been helpful?

ME
Get out.

[Curtain closes]
