I’m Not Throwing You Anywhere

Seanna challenges Hopper due to his inhibitions in this drama scene from the one-act eplay, The Echoes of Our Existence.

SEANNA: Done.

HOPPER: What’s done?

SEANNA: Us.

HOPPER: You’re bluffing.

SEANNA: Am I?

HOPPER: If this is what you want.

SEANNA: You could go now.

(Hopper continues getting dressed)

HOPPER …Feeling useless.

SEANNA: You aren’t totally useless.

HOPPER: You’re throwing me out.

SEANNA: I’m not throwing you anywhere.

HOPPER: But you want me to leave.

SEANNA: That’s called knowledge.

HOPPER: Knowledge?

SEANNA: Uh-huh.

HOPPER: What is?

SEANNA: What you’re feeling.

HOPPER: You’re a cold woman.

SEANNA: Aren’t we adults?

HOPPER: You lack humanity.

SEANNA: (laughs)

HOPPER: Human decency.

SEANNA: (laughing)

HOPPER: And you’re twisted.

SEANNA: I’ve been called much worse.

HOPPER: I’m not trying to call you names.

SEANNA: Is your manhood wounded?

HOPPER: My manhood?

SEANNA: What is your manhood anyway? Describe it to me.

HOPPER: I wouldn’t know where to start.

SEANNA: Give me one example of your beloved manhood.

HOPPER: I don’t believe I’m in love with my own manhood. I’m just an average guy.

SEANNA: (laughs)

HOPPER: You saying I’m not average?

SEANNA: I’m saying you are traditional.

HOPPER: What’s wrong with tradition?

SEANNA: There are values one should hold and others necessary to discard. The trouble is we tend to hold on to the wrong values for far too long.

HOPPER: And just how does one know which is which?

SEANNA: Time decides.
