"Carry Out Stage"Characters:
Empty stage, each character holds defining props
Strawberries: X shape
Running with a plate of strawberries and a paper bag full of water bottles until it breaks. If the bag breaks before 10 minutes is up, collect all bottles and attempt to continue on X path. Strawberries become a puzzle for performer, they can either eat them or try to balance on top of bottles or head.
Chicken Noodle: Waiting
A woman arrives stage left, walking with a large Tupperware of chicken noodle soup stops at a bag of groceries, overflowing with chips and greens. Stands with bag between legs as if on a crowded train trying to balance with soup.
Arrives two minutes in, stands up stage right. Holds a bag of Cheetos while looking into audience, occasionally rubbing dust onto khaki capris.
