MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Contemporary                                

Situation: A cashier is ringing up a customer's purchase – the routine questions become increasingly more personal and outrageous.

Subject Matter: Flirtation, Romance, Privacy, Retail, Questions

Note from Playwright: Do you have any right to privacy in a store anymore? This is a comical takedown of the commercial erosion of social norms of what it's acceptable to ask in a retail transaction. This is part of a collection of monologues I wrote for a comic character, ENVIA!, an out of work, "aspiring" actor who takes a variety of unsuitable jobs to support her acting pursuits.
