No guidelines.. it's just a normal dramatic duet that goes for about 7 minutes. The skit is along these lines.. Hopefully, rewriting this will diminish the chances that I'll go blank at the competition... :o
1: *on phone* Okay, you can send her in now. *straightens herself out, Person 2 enters*
Hey, thanks for stopping in! I hope you weren't waiting too long.
2: Only about twenty minutes..
1: Sorry, couldn't be helped. I was on a call to England, just couldn't get off!
2: That happens. So, what do you need?
1: Sit down, I wanted to talk. *2 sits* I've been trying to meet with everyone ever since I got promoted to VP of Productions.
2: Jane, we;ve been working together for a while now-
1: I know.. I just wanted everyone to know what they can expect from me and what I'm going to expect from them now that, well, I'm in charge here.
1: Tell me, what are you working on now?
2: Pretty much the same thing I was when we were in the same office. The Wilson Project, the Miller Deal, the Kramer Project...
1: I see. So here's what we're gonna do. I'm taking Wilson, Miller, and Kramer away from you and giving them to some others to work on.
2: I've been working on those for months! You can't just do that!
1: Not only can I do it, but I already did.
1: I think you're a little... overloaded. I wanted to lighten your load.
2: Lighten my load? That is my load! Without that, what the hell am I going to work on?
1: Thinking was, you should work with rsearch for a while.
2: Research?! That's entry level!
1: Technically, yes, but all these kids coming in need someone to show them the ropes, and who better than you?
2: And exactly how long am I supposed to show them the ropes?
1: I guess until I say otherwise.
2: This is a bunch of crap, Jane, and you know it.
1: You can call it whatever you want, but I'm in charge here and this is where I want you. You don't have to do as I say, but I can certainly arrange a very nice severance package if you like. But believe me when I say that you days as production manager are done.
2: *stands up and walks to door* We'll just see about that.
1: Have a nice day, Nancy!
2: Why are you doing this?
1: I have my reasons.
** more arguing and bickering, and we find out that Jane wants to get Nancy out of the way so that when the president of the whole company ( her father ) retires, the whole thing will go to her **
>> FAST FORWARD >>
Eventually, Nancy ( 2 ) tells Jane that she has a recorder and has just recorded everything she said. Jane then has no choice but to give Nancy her work back, and keep quiet.
THANK YOU! :D
