In darkness:

I

Don’t do it.

J

Fuck off.

I

You’ll regret it.

J

Fuck off.

I

No, really. It won’t fix anything.

J

I know, but it’ll distract me.

I

Not for long. And you’ll hate yourself after.

J

Yeah. Still. I want to.

I

Don’t.

J

Fuck off.

Lights up to reveal only J onstage. J then proceeds to do one of any number of acts: light a cigarette, shoot up, drink alcohol, invite someone over for sex, sniff coke, cut themselves, etc. The actor should pick the thing that is most threatening to him/her.

But of course, none of these acts are real. They are merely . . . staged.
