[Stage left: the sound of a large motor and creaking metal wheels overtakes the gunfire. The long gun barrel of an Abrams tank crashes through the factory wall.]
Dudley: What’s all this then?
[The tank fires multiple 120mm shells over the actor’s heads, leveling the wall at stage right. The gun barrel withdraws as the revving motor, and the sound of gunfire becomes quieter. The two men shake their heads in disgust.]
Nigel: I do say!
Dudley: Really! Is that necessary?
Nigel: I should say not!
[Nigel turns toward the audience, revealing the large chunk of shrapnel protruding from the right side of his head. His ear is missing. He sips his tea.]
Dudley: I say, old man, it appears as if you’ve been hit.
Nigel: Oh, bother.
Dudley: Right. Right. By all reason, you should be dying, then.
Nigel: I do believe you’re correct.
Dudley: I know of a Shiite controlled hospital, just a hop and a skip from here in Sadr City. Come on, then. Let’s gather up your things. [Starts packing RPG in a green duffel bag.]
Nigel: But I thought... [Picks ear off of ground and holds it next to head] did you say ‘Shiite’?
Dudley: Oh dear. Well, this is embarrassing.
[Dudley stands up, looks at his watch and whistles uncomfortably. Nigel attempts to grab his arm and falls on the floor face down.]
Nigel: I say, I’m in a great deal of pain… [screams] are you leaving, then?
Dudley: Yes, I’m afraid so; I have an appointment I must attend to. Dreadfully sorry.
Nigel: Right, then. Pleasure to have met you. [Gasping for breath.]
Dudley: Indeed. Have a good day, sir. [Shakes Nigel’s limp hand, and walks off stage.]
Nigel: Good bye.
[The curtain falls, and the Iraqi national anthem begins to play.]
