Making Friends In The Neighborhood
(A Play in One Act)

Night

Act One

Scene 1
(Evening. Kristy arrives home at her building. A group of neighborhood youths is loitering
 outside. Kristy approaches and the youths make way to allow her to reach the doorway.)

YOUTH 
Hey, what's your name?
KRISTY 
 (Unwilling to give up information without first receiving some)
What's your name? 
YOUTH 
Caliph.
KRISTY
Hi, Caliph.  I'm Kristy.
CALIPH
How old are you?
KRISTY  
How old do you think I am?
CALIPH 
Nineteen.
KRISTY  
(ignores the 15-year underestimation;
unlocks door; enters front hallway)
Good answer, Caliph.
CALIPH 
(calls after her)
Hey, do you have a boyfriend?
KRISTY  
(over her shoulder)
Goodnight, Caliph!
CALIPH 
All right, good night.


End scene.
