Monologue Mania Day # 1678 Return   (from THE END OF DEATH) by Janet S. Tiger (c) Sept. 20,  2018

            This is designed to end the evening of a collection of one-acts or monologues.
                                                  (from THE END OF DEATH)

              (This is a visitor from the future, dressed to fit the part)

VISITOR -  Thank you for coming tonight.  I have just one last thing to say before I leave.

First, I am going to ask you to close your eyes as we dim the lights to absolute darkness.  It's a good thing I have this memorized, eh? 

(It is very important that the theater now be as dark as possible for this.  There can be total silence – or music if that works.  The important issue is complete darkness)

Anyhow, in the darkness I want you to think about this moment in time.  No other moments, just this one.  I want you to concentrate on the person next to you, and behind you and how you feel at this very instant.

Because one day far in the future, thousands, maybe even millions of years from now, you will be alive, and you will come to this moment again. 

And when you do, you will remember this moment right now, and you will wonder where you have seen it before.  And that is future view – not to be confused with déjà vu, which it often is.  This is time travel and I thank you for sharing it with me.  You see I was here a long time ago, and tonight I return, just as you will one day return.  (Pauses)  And so my new friends, good night – until we meet again......

            (Lights come back up to an empty stage)
