White lights on stage followed by a low sound of screaming, Shadow followed by Arthur come from the side of the stage looking around both each have a bag with them. Blocks are around and have objects on them.
Shadow: Ok let’s just hurry up, I’m pretty sure that woman wouldn’t keep those monsters occupied for long.
Arthur: Maybe we should have just put her out of her misery I mean no one should go through that.
Shadow: (sighs and turns to look at Arthur) Arthur, do you think I’m happy about all this,
it’s a tough world out there and we need to look out for our own if we want to survive. (looks over at one of the blocks and quickly goes over to in and starts to place the things in the bag)
Arthur: (goes to one of the other blocks) I still don’t think it’s right thought, I mean surely she could come with us
Shadow: You know as well as I do that once your bit its only a matter of time before you turn.
Sounds of the screams stop suddenly, Arthur and Shadow look at each other quickly before dashing to the final block and getting everything they can off the block quickly.
Shadow: (shouts) let’s get out of here now.
A sound of glass braking followed by growls, Shadow grabs Arthur’s arm and runs off stage and lights go off to black out. All characters apart from Leonard, Shadow and Arthur come on stage move the blocks back.
Alfred: they should have gotten back by now.
Kat: Alfred, you just want them back quickly so you can get something to eat; all you really do is think about your stomach.
Alfred: I do not, I’m just saying they seem to be taking longer than normal to get back.
Francis: They probably got eaten.
Nala: Don’t you even think about talking like that Francis, your scaring Luna.
Jim: You lot just be quiet after all I’m in charge so what I say goes.
Sarah: since when are you in charge, Jim.
Jade: Since Shadow ended up making the mistake of putting him in charge.
Jim: That’s right, I think we should be quiet, John go check to radio to see if we have any contact.
Dim lighting on stage at start, sounds of clawing, moans and groans can be heard from the tanons. John moves to the front of the stage with a radio trying to get some contact. Luna is hugging Nala in fear everyone else is around on stage.
Luna: Sister there trying to get in again.
Nala: Its alright Luna, I promise that I wouldn’t let anything bad to you.
Jessie: They haven’t gotten in before so they wouldn’t as long as that door is kept closed.
Arthur and Shadow come onto the stage, each carrying small plastic bags with stuff in. Lights start to get lighter; sounds of clawing slowly fade out. Alfred turns to look at Arthur.
Alfred: (sounds disappointed) Dude, is that all you got?
Arthur: (sighs in annoyance) Be grateful that we managed to come back with anything, you
git.( Alfred stands up before going behind Arthur and yanks the bag out of Arthur’s hand.)
Arthur: (sounds very annoyed) Give that back.
Alfred holds the bag out as if to give it back to Arthur, Arthur reaches to take the bag.
Alfred pulls the bag away and laughs, Arthur growls in annoyance before chasing after Alfred. Alfred and Arthur exit off stage running.
Shadow: As Arthur was saying this is all that we managed to get, I know it isn’t much but with everything all gone to hell these days it’s better than nothing (Starts handing out the food from the bag to each person in the circle)
Jade: (looks at the bar she is given before sighing) I remember when things used to be better, I’m sure we all do, am I right? (Everyone on stage nods in agreement and starts to think of their lives before all this)
Jim: I sure do, having one lady each night (says in a high voice) Oh Jim you’re so good in bed, f**** me harder (Sarah hits Jim)
Sarah: Oh really well last I remembered you were the one that was saying I was the one good in bed and anyway you were never that good in bed.
Everyone on stage laughs apart from Francis. Francis stands up before creepily leaving the stage, Kat and Jade are those who notice Francis leave however don’t say anything.
John: (holds mic to the radio) Hello this is John Davis, if anyone is listening we are needing rescue, there are many of us in Nescot, we are not infected and are in need of rescue.
Amber (comes over to John) any luck.
John: (disappointed) None
Shadow: of course no one replied I mean you’ve been doing that every day since we got here and there has never been a response, face it we are the last that are left.
Nala: You can’t say that.
Shadow: (anger) Why not, I mean come on it’s been about a month since this happened and has anyone come for us.
Jessie: There is still hope that this isn’t the end.
Shadow: (sighs in annoyance) Fine whatever, just don’t be thinking that we are going to be saved anytime soon at least. (Goes off stage)
Everyone watches Shadow leave the stage before looking at each other.
Sarah: What’s got her panties in a twist?
Kat: Maybe it’s that time of the month
Amber: well I think right now isn’t the time to be thinking about that after all.
Sarah, Jade and Jim stand up and move close to the audience.
Jade: (looking at Jim and Sarah) you remember when everything went bad and how we managed to still be alive, I can still remember it even to this day.
