Highway to Havana

By Chris Wyatt


(Scene: An airliner in flight, with a few rows of people facing the audience. The airline hostess walks down the aisle handing out magazines, until every passenger has one. There is background aircraft noise throughout the scene.)

The hostess begins to hand out sweets and drinks. The passengers sit reading, giving occasional suspicious glances over the tops of their magazines.

Suddenly, as one body, they put down their magazines, stand up, draw out an assortment of pistols, bombs, machine guns, etc, face the aisle, and shout together,

"Don't move! This is a hijack!"

There is an embarrassed silence. Then slowly and quietly, they put away their weapons, pick up their magazines and go back to reading.

Slow black-out.
