Park by Kevin T. Baldwin
Colin (or Colleen) is sitting on a bench at Hopscotch Park as his/her father is in a bank. Tania sits on the same bench as her mother is in a family assistance bureau. The two children get to talking and discover many interesting things about each other, and about themselves.
A playground at a park, late in the afternoon. There is a bench downstage center. There is an ice cream counter located upstage right. There is a Hopscotch game pattern grid front downstage center on the floor in front of the bench, but it is not imperative that the audience sees the grid. Its only important for the actors to work with it. The remainder of the playground set may be as elaborate or as simple as the director or set designer wishes.
DIRECTORS NOTE: The actions described for the hopscotch game dont have to be visibly performed by the actors. The game can be pantomimed if necessary.
