A Short Play That By Leaving Everything Out, Might Just Be Leaving Everything In

[Setting: A place where everything is mud
and anything that is not mud is covered in mud.
As the curtain rises, the characters are
barely visible in the muck.]

L’homme: [rising up out of the muck] Do you remember when we were clean?

ER2: [rising up out of the muck] No.

[Both characters sink down back into the muck
and are never heard from again.]
