I saw this interactive program on AOTS and downloaded it, here is a stageplay of me trying to save a marriage. Do your best to piece it together...




FACADE STAGEPLAY
Tue Jul 12 00 16 55 2005

TRIP
Where are the new wine glasses?

GRACE
What for?

TRIP
That should be obvious!

(Eric knocks on the front door.)

(Eric knocks on the front door.)

GRACE
Oh God, -- (interrupted)

TRIP
Uhp, he's here!

GRACE
What?! You said he's coming an hour from now!

TRIP
No, he's supposed to be here now!

GRACE
Trip...!

(Trip opens the front door.)

TRIP
Eric!!

TRIP
Ah I'm so happy you could make it! -- (interrupted)

ERIC
Trip!

TRIP
Uh...

TRIP
Well come on in...

TRIP
Uh, it'll be just a sec while I go get Grace...

ERIC
ok

TRIP
(unintelligable arguing)

TRIP
(unintelligable arguing)

TRIP
(unintelligable arguing)

GRACE
Eric,

GRACE
Hi! How are you? Oh it's so nice to see you, it feels like it's been forever!

ERIC
Hey Grace! Whats shakin?

GRACE
Aw, ha ha ha! -- (interrupted)

GRACE
By the way, you look fabulous!

(ERIC kisses grace.)

GRACE
Oh, yes, let's... (polite kiss on cheek)

GRACE
Aren't you sweet.

GRACE
So, come in, make yourself at home...

ERIC
Heh heh, alll right

GRACE
Eric, seeing you again makes me remember the wonderful times we all used to have.

(Trip closes the front door.)

GRACE
H-mmm (happy smile sound)

TRIP
Ha ha, yeah...

TRIP
Whoa I just realized something!

GRACE
What...

TRIP
Oh, tonight's a special night! A celebration in fact!

GRACE
What do you mean?

TRIP
Eric, remember, it was almost exactly ten years ago, tonight, that you introduced us.

TRIP
Senior year of college!

GRACE
Oh... geez... -- (interrupted)

ERIC
Ahhh yeah, I can hardly remember

TRIP
Uh, well, all I can say is, tonight means a lot to me, and Grace.

ERIC
TOo much drinking

TRIP
Y -- yeah, well, uh, well, uh, it's good to see you again. -- (interrupted)

TRIP
Huh, y -- you two are really getting along well tonight...

GRACE
So, Eric, ha, maybe you can give me your honest opinion about where I went wrong with my new decorating, uhh...

GRACE
(little sigh)

TRIP
Oh, Grace, no, no, h -- how can you say that?

ERIC
The wall color

GRACE
Yeah, the layout...

GRACE
So, about my decorating...

GRACE
Uhh... I was hoping to give this room a post-modern style...

TRIP
Yeah! Yeah! Oh yeah. It -- it's definitely got that.

GRACE
but it's... just... not happening. This isn't right.

TRIP
Oh no, no... Eric, it -- it's fine...

ERIC
Hmm....

GRACE
Oh, really?

TRIP
Well, well, I was right Grace, you're the only one unhappy with your decorating.

GRACE
Oh. Okay. I just thought you understood me, that's all.

GRACE
Hmm, I'm going to return most of this anyhow. I have to redo this room. -- (interrupted)

ERIC
Trip, how about a martini?

TRIP
Oh, yeah, let me fix us all some drinks in a sec!

TRIP
Ah, you'll be the first to sample from my new set of imported drinking glasses.

TRIP
So! Drinks!

TRIP
How about a martini?

TRIP
The guy I play squash with introduced me to this drink, it's really amazing.

GRACE
Oh God, Trip, please... let's not go overboard with the drink preparation.

ERIC
Grace, you're too much.

TRIP
Uh, well, you know what, I'm just going to make you a martini.

GRACE
No no,

ERIC
Ok

GRACE
Eric, maybe you'd like some juice, or a mineral water?

ERIC
No, health nut

TRIP
Aha! Great! Drinks comin' right up!

TRIP
(quiet humming)

GRACE
(little sigh) Ah, the funny thing is, Trip doesn't even like the taste of alcohol.

TRIP
What was that?

GRACE
(clears throat)

TRIP
Grace, I assume you want your usual... 'a lovely, very cold glass of Chardonnay'.

ERIC
She said you don't like AlcohoLL!

TRIP
No, uh, I was just going to ask Grace what she wants.

GRACE
I'm not in the mood to drink tonight.

GRACE
I don't want anything.

TRIP
Nothing?

TRIP
(frustrated sigh)

TRIP
Okay, well, you and I are getting along better tonight than I first thought, heh heh!

TRIP
(little sigh)

TRIP
Ah, Eric, I'm sorry, you didn't come here to hear this...

GRACE
What?

GRACE
Trip, there's nothing wrong with disagreeing in front of our friend --

TRIP
Disagreeing?! We're NOT disagreeing.

TRIP
We're not.

TRIP
Here you are!

ERIC
My Drink?

(ERIC picks up a player's drink.)

TRIP
Oh, yeah, you know, I think I'll fix us another drink in not too long...

ERIC
Thank ya

GRACE
By the way, anybody, join me on the couch if you like.

(ERIC sips his player's drink.)

GRACE
Eric, this is making you uncomfortable. See Trip, was it really worth it to fly us all the way to Italy so you could take that inane picture?

(ERIC sits on the couch.)

TRIP
Grace...!

GRACE
(little sigh) I'll take the picture down later tonight before I go to bed.

TRIP
(short petulant sigh)

(ERIC sips his player's drink.)

TRIP
Eric, this trip to Italy was meant to be our second honeymoon.

(ERIC gets up from the couch.)

GRACE
Oh, was that what it was? Huh, I'm always the last to know.

TRIP
Grace, I wanted us to spend some time together...!

GRACE
Trip thinks carting me off to Europe will, how did you put it, thaw me out a little bit?

ERIC
Gimmie another drink.

TRIP
Uhh, you're driving me insane!

(ERIC sips his player's drink.)

(ERIC sips his player's drink.)

TRIP
Carting you off to Europe...

(ERIC sips his player's drink.)

(ERIC sips his player's drink.)

TRIP
Eric, no, I'm not fixing you a drink right now!

(ERIC sips his player's drink.)

(ERIC sips his player's drink.)

TRIP
Grace, I do one little thing wrong, and you're cold and distant! Just one thing wrong, that's all it takes!

(ERIC puts down a player's drink.)

GRACE
(impatient sigh) Eric, I...

(ERIC picks up the advice ball.)

(The advice ball reads, "Sure Thing")

GRACE
(frustrated sigh)

GRACE
Goddamn second honeymoon...

ERIC
Don't look at me!!!!!!

GRACE
Trip, our whole marriage, you're so... controlling! -- (interrupted)

GRACE
What? I -- what are you saying to me?

TRIP
Alright, you know what, Eric,

(ERIC puts down the advice ball.)

(ERIC picks up the advice ball.)

(The advice ball reads, "Yes")

TRIP
I need to ask you something.

GRACE
Trip --

TRIP
Grace, let me ask our guest a question.

(ERIC puts down the advice ball.)

TRIP
Eric, yes or no...

TRIP
If one person in a marriage gives the other advice, and that advice is taken -- years later, can you get blamed for that?

(ERIC picks up the advice ball.)

GRACE
What?

(The advice ball reads, "Sure Thing")

TRIP
Is it okay to get blamed for giving advice that was taken, like, ten years ago?

ERIC
Sure thing

TRIP
Yes or no. -- (interrupted)

TRIP
What...?!

TRIP
Oh, alright... yeah...

(ERIC puts down the advice ball.)

TRIP
Uhh, I keep trying to help you Grace, but you reject me, you cut me off, you cut me out of your life, goddammit!

GRACE
Oh, that's great Trip!

GRACE
Uhh! Yeah, good, get out of my sight!

ERIC
Are you going to drin kthat?

GRACE
I don't want to look at you!

GRACE
Oh, God!!

(ERIC kisses grace.)

GRACE
Hey, stop it, goddamn it!

TRIP
Grace, are you talking about me?

GRACE
I'm not talking to you!

TRIP
Oh... s***!

GRACE
Eric, from what you said before, about marriage... I think that tells us something about Trip.

TRIP
Oh ho, so we're talking about me, are we?

GRACE
What?

TRIP
Eric, look around this apartment. It's got everything anyone would ever want. But, Grace, oh no, she's never satisfied.

GRACE
Trip, ... ugh ... I'm so sick of this. -- (interrupted)

ERIC
It doesn't have a TV

TRIP
No?

GRACE
Ah, thank you, that helps him.

GRACE
Trip, look at my parents. If money bought happiness they wouldn't hate themselves like they do.

TRIP
What?

GRACE
Look, let's not focus on just me or you, let's talk about us.

GRACE
Trip, you just pretend to like all this stuff... fancy cigars, and fine wine...

TRIP
You think I'm not good enough...!

GRACE
I never said that! I'm saying there's more to you than all this...

ERIC
.....................Grace is having an affair!

TRIP
Ah!

GRACE
Oh God...

TRIP
What is...? This is making no sense...

(ERIC picks up a Trip's drink.)

(ERIC sips his Trip's drink.)

(ERIC sips his Trip's drink.)

TRIP
What? What is this? I'm confused.

(ERIC sips his Trip's drink.)

(ERIC sips his Trip's drink.)

(ERIC sips his Trip's drink.)

GRACE
No, no no no no no, our -- our 'friend' is just trying to... to confuse me or something...

(ERIC sips his Trip's drink.)

(ERIC sips his Trip's drink.)

(ERIC puts down a Trip's drink.)

(ERIC picks up a Trip's drink.)

(ERIC sips his Trip's drink.)

(ERIC puts down a Trip's drink.)

(ERIC picks up a Trip's drink.)

(ERIC sips his Trip's drink.)

GRACE
Uhh...

(ERIC puts down a Trip's drink.)

ERIC
....Grace is cheating on you, trip.

GRACE
Uhh, Eric, you know, we already talked about that... -- (interrupted)

(ERIC comforts trip.)

TRIP
No, uhh... Eric, what I need is to figure out what hell is going here... -- (interrupted)

(ERIC picks up the advice ball.)

GRACE
All this stuff... mmm... Having all this money makes us so happy. We're so happy, aren't we Trip?

(The advice ball reads, "Who Knows")

(ERIC puts down the advice ball.)

(ERIC picks up a Trip's drink.)

(ERIC puts down a Trip's drink.)

(ERIC picks up a Trip's drink.)

(ERIC puts down a Trip's drink.)

TRIP
Jesus, what do you want! Now you're unhappy because we're too well off?

TRIP
Eric, isn't it -- isn't that ridiculous?

(ERIC picks up the advice ball.)

(The advice ball reads, "Sure Thing")

GRACE
Yes?

GRACE
You both... Just get away from me! -- (interrupted)

ERIC
Sure thing

GRACE
Yes?

(ERIC puts down the advice ball.)

GRACE
Oh God... Eric, if you take his side in this, I swear I'll walk out the door...

ERIC
Bye

GRACE
No, don't... give me a second here... uhh...

(ERIC picks up the advice ball.)

TRIP
Let's talk some more about Grace.

(ERIC puts down the advice ball.)

GRACE
Trip, it's your fault -- ten years ago, freshly married and just out of college,

GRACE
you convinced me to go into advertising, instead of art! -- (interrupted)

ERIC
How about another martini?

TRIP
Eric, does it look like I want to fix you drinks right now?

ERIC
Yes

GRACE
Look, I think we should focus on Trip.

TRIP
Eric, you think this is all my fault, don't you?

TRIP
You're saying I -- I caused all this? I, I what, what -- what screwed up somewhere along the line?

(ERIC picks up the advice ball.)

(The advice ball reads, "I Doubt It")

ERIC
I doubt it

TRIP
No? -- (interrupted)

(ERIC puts down the advice ball.)

TRIP
Oh, well thank God you disagree, that helps! (frustrated sigh) I didn't screw anything up...

GRACE
Let's keep talking about Trip.

TRIP
Grace, we don't -- we don't have to do this... things are okay, we can just --

GRACE
Eric, I can't stand the pretending anymore... I can't take it!

ERIC
Oh

TRIP
Yes?

GRACE
Ah, thank you, just saying that might help him!

(ERIC picks up the advice ball.)

(The advice ball reads, "Sure Thing")

(ERIC puts down the advice ball.)

GRACE
Trip, please, stop pretending, you've got to stop...!

TRIP
Uhh...

ERIC
You need to make up

GRACE
Let's keep talking about Trip.

ERIC
Kiss each other

TRIP
Eric, you know, it's weird -- (interrupted)

TRIP
Look, just quit the flirting right now, I'm warning you!

TRIP
Uhh, this is insane...

GRACE
Look, let's talk about Trip now.

TRIP
It's so annoying... you know lately I've been really trying to spend more time together...

ERIC
Lets not

TRIP
Eric, she makes it so difficult...

ERIC
Yes she does

TRIP
Yes?

ERIC
er

GRACE
Trip, that's not going to solve anything...

TRIP
Uhh...

ERIC
leave her

GRACE
Ah!

TRIP
D -- divorce? Eric, you think we should get a divorce?

ERIC
yes

TRIP
God, I, I -- I mean, to even suggest divorce is... (little sigh) Look I'll just forget you said that.

ERIC
but first have kids

GRACE
Look, let's talk about Trip now.

TRIP
Heh... you know, the worst is when I come home from a business trip... Grace avoids me for days!

GRACE
Eric, (annoyed sigh)

ERIC
Thats when she cheats on you

TRIP
Uhh, Eric, we went over that already, didn't we?

ERIC
during your businesws trips

TRIP
Okay, I'm sick of this bulls***!!

(ERIC picks up the advice ball.)

TRIP
Eric, I know what you're hinting at, okay?!

(The advice ball reads, "Could Be")

TRIP
about me...

ERIC
Could be

TRIP
about our marriage...

(ERIC puts down the advice ball.)

TRIP
No, Eric, hold on, hold on, let me speak!

TRIP
Do you really want the truth? Huh?

ERIC
Yes

TRIP
Grace?

GRACE
Yes...!

TRIP
Eric, see I've actually been paying close attention to what you've been saying.

TRIP
You've been pushing me tonight.

TRIP
And I wonder, are you really my friend or not.

GRACE
Trip!

TRIP
Eric, come on -- yes or no...

TRIP
Do you really think that...

TRIP
kissing Grace...

TRIP
suggesting that we get divorced...

TRIP
and worst of all,

TRIP
suggesting that Grace is cheating on me...

TRIP
and what you said about giving advice to your wife...

TRIP
that I'm supposed to realize something about myself from all that?

ERIC
No, i'm grace's secret lover!!! :o

TRIP
No? Huh... I'm surprised you say that, I thought it did.

TRIP
Grace...

TRIP
uhh...

TRIP
I've been having an affair.

GRACE
Oh my God.

TRIP
It's over now, though.

GRACE
But how could you --

TRIP
(big sigh) with the client, in, uh, Barcelona.

GRACE
Maria.

ERIC
SO HAS SHE, LMAO!!!!! HAHAHA

TRIP
I was lonely, Grace.

TRIP
But, but, I -- I regret it, I really, really regret it.

TRIP
uhh...

GRACE
uhh...

GRACE
Oh my God...!

TRIP
Eric, I --

GRACE
Eric, I, uhh...

TRIP
What?!

GRACE
This changes everything...

TRIP
Yes, it does change everything.

TRIP
I think it's over.

GRACE
Trip, what --

TRIP
No!!

TRIP
It's over, Grace, don't you see that?

ERIC
How about a martini?

GRACE
Wha... You just told me --

TRIP
I just told you something about me I should have said a long time ago:

TRIP
I cheated on you. I betrayed you.

GRACE
Trip, no, I... we...

TRIP
No, Grace, this is about me. I see now it's not about you, or about our marriage.

ERIC
Grace, he's lying.

GRACE
Me...? Our -- our marriage...? Hey, no, wait!

TRIP
And no, Eric, enough of that already...

TRIP
Eric, I'm sorry. You really helped me though, so, thanks.

GRACE
Trip!

ERIC
Bye

(Trip opens the front door.)

(Trip closes the front door.)

GRACE

GRACE
Oh my God...

GRACE

GRACE

What, my expert skills revieled two affairs, got a divorce, sent a man on the street, and got me someone to live with, AND uncovered a double homicide!!!

Just by saying, "GRACE IS HAVING AN AFFAIR!"

Err, scratch the homocide.

There are really some funny parts if you read it though. :P
