Right Or Wrong

Scene 1
Location- A hospital ward.
Setting- Kase as an ill patient is looking out into open space in deep thought.

Kase Voice Over- I spend the remainder of my days lying here in desolation, surrounded by death and decay, waiting for my calling card. My fondest memories of my youth my only companion. (Children’s play and laughter in the background)
I was so full of ambition, potential waiting to fulfilled and then I grew up. Each year a greater revelation of what life really was, tarnishing my innocence and taking with it my dreams. I can give a hundred excuses for why I’m here, for the mistakes I made. But you only live once and life is about learning to live with regrets even if they kill you. The truth is no one has the perfect life, mine was as good as it gets and still wasn’t enough. Or maybe it was too much. I have tasted the bitter and the sweet, the poor and the rich, the good and the bad and in the end what did it all mean. What was the purpose of my existence. Did I live a good life and make the wrong choices or did a bad life grant me good fav. Some will live a lot longer than me, others a lot shorter. I had a life and I made my choices, were they right or wrong?

Kase- Where did I go wrong.

Scene 2
Location- The University student union bar.
Setting- The story flashes back over five years to Kase’s graduation party. He is seated in a student bar, surrounded by a few of his friends as they discuss their future. Slightly darker setting with music in the background.

Kase- So we made it! (cheers from the group.)
1st Mate- Ya, talk about miracles. And we didn’t even have to strike once.
2nd Mate- No. That was just you. Conveniently you were never around when a stand had to be made.
1st Mate- Eh, I was around enough to graduate. I’m sure my parents will be happy enough with that.
Kase- Don’t you bring your parents into this, you don’t even like them. (laughter)
1st Mate- Yes, but I do like their beer money. Should we get another round. (He says standing up to leave.)
Kase- If you must. Lets not disappoint them. (more group laughter and cheers.)
2nd Mate- Graduating was the easy part, now we have to go out and work for a living.
Kase- Working is the easy part, try finding a job.
2nd Mate- exactly! That’s what I meant. Atleast some of us will be ok, heh. (he says signalling towards 1st mate at the bar. They all smile.)
Kase- We best stick close. He may have some work for us one day.
3rd Mate- Ya, but I’m not cleaning his toilet. (they all laugh.)
( Natasha comes over and sits on his lap)
Natasha- What’s so funny?
3rd Mate- We were just talking about what comes next in our ever exciting lives.
Natasha- Oh that’s ok. I’ve already planned ours for the next ten years. (She says rubbing Kase’s head. He smiles in embarrassment.)
3rd Mate- Oh oh! It seems we’ve lost him already. (they laugh.)

Scene 3
Location- Kase’s family home. Medium sized 3 bedroom house.
Setting- It’s been a few weeks since graduation and Kase is returning home one day to find his Uncle talking to his mother in the living room. General conversation is going on in the room.
Mother- Oh Kasesa, your back. Greet your uncle. (they both stand up)
Uncle Peter- My son, you’ve really grown eh! (He hugs him)
You’re a man now.
Kase- Yes Uncle and how are you?
Uncle Peter- I’m fine, fine. The usual troubles we have in this country. Take a seat. (He ushers him to a seat.)
I here you’ve graduated now.
Kase- Yes Uncle! About two months ago now.
Uncle Peter- Congratulations! And what are your plans now?
Kase- Well, I’m just looking for employment at the moment but you know how difficult that is these days.
Uncle Peter- It’s why I came my son. (They all laugh.)
You studied economics, right?
Kase- Yes.
Uncle Peter- You see, your Uncle doesn’t forget these things. Your still my favourite nephew you know, don’t tell your other other relatives that. (he says with a grin.)
Kase- No I won’t. (also grinning.)
Uncle Peter- Now I made a promise to you a few years back now. Can you recall?
Kase- Yes I do.
Uncle Peter- Of course, a mind like your uncle’s. (They laugh)
Well it seems you have fulfilled your part of the bargain and so must I. We can’t have people believing Peter Banda is not a man of his word.
Kase- Definitely not!
Mother- Ba Peter who would dare make such an accusation.
Uncle Peter- Ah my Suzy, you don’t know my colleagues in politics. There like a pack of vultures, looking for a fresh carcass to feast on and I have plenty of meat you know. (He says rubbing his belly. They laugh.)
Now, it just so happens there is a position coming up in …
