Author's Notes:
Please feel free to update any references that become embarrassingly dated (though, obviously, some of 4’s references are meant to be somewhat dated). It will be important that you find out if Zima is available as they seem to keep changing their minds about whether or not they want to sell it to the public. More than anything, though, please speak this dialogue quickly. It’s meant to be spoken quickly and, if you speak it too slowly, an angel loses its wings.
A cancer patient. A banker. An actress. A hostess. These four unnamed strangers (and, eventually, a pizza delivery boy named Dale) spend an evening together in a tiny apartment filled with mysterious smells and eight copies of the Twilight books. What’s brought them together? Their shared desire to end it all, of course! They’ll spend the evening drinking and discussing some of life’s most important topics: The nature and existence of God, whether Red Vines are better than Twizzlers (they are), the moral ramifications of their actions, and whether their little group should be considered a club or a cult. Some of them will fall in love. Some of them will die. Some of them will wonder aloud why anyone would put chicken on a pizza. It’s a little bit Jean-Paul Sartre, a little bit more John Hughes. It’s a pitch-black comedy with a light at the end of the tunnel. It’s Quick Exit.
