For I Am Zeus

Setting:  A bar called Dionysian Delights.

At rise:  LINDSEY, blonde, 25, and dressed in a tank top and short skirt, is sitting alone at a table for two.  As she takes a sip of her appletini, ZEUS, wearing a toga and holding a lightning bolt in one hand and a scepter in the other, approaches her.


Mind if I join you?



I’m waiting for someone.


(Zeus sits down and props his scepter and lightning bolt against the chair.)



I know.  You’ve been waiting for me your whole life.



Who are you?



I am Zeus, god of everything.  I know, I know, it’s a pleasure to meet me.



I’ve never heard of you.


Sure you have!  I live on Mount Olympus, I rule the heavens, and I have a bunch of kids…because I’m great at seducing women.


(Zeus kisses Lindsey’s hand.)




Could you not do that?  I don’t even know you!



All you need to know is that no woman can resist me, for I am Zeus!



I’m sure some women can resist you.



Nope!  When I want a woman, I get her…my success rate is one hundred and ten percent.
