Your assignment for this week is to read over the script below and make some character choices. Try to base them on the script. Who’s Mac? Who’s Mary? What’s their relationship. What do they each want in the scene? And what’s motivating them? Why does Mary even answer the phone when Mac calls? Reading both parts aloud may give you a stronger sense of who the characters are.
The second part of the assignment is to write a short monologue for each character. Imagine the character talking to someone else in their life, such as a close friend, husband or wife, or a therapist. In Mac’s scene, Mac is talking to someone about Mary. In Mary’s scene, she’s talking to someone about Mac. What kinds of things would they say about each other?
