Rooibos is pronounced “roy-bosh” in South Africa

Act One, Scene One

A twenty-something unshaven non-overweight white MAN with touseled hair in on stage with a dog. The dog is alert and happy seeming. A retreiver or mix, but shouldn’t be too much of a mutt.

MAN [scoldingly, to dog]: What did you just eat?


The dog looks at him, tentatively wags its tail.

MAN: You know you’re not supposed to eat things off the ground. What did you eat?

[The dog looks at the man expectantly. Wags its tail a little.]
