Robin Hoodwink

The Underbelly

Robin Hoodwink is robbing Betty to give to the rich in order to finance his campaign. Unsuccessful, he goes elsewhere, getting finances from a surprising source.

A rich young man has joined his father's firm. He discovers he has to make a decision between right and wrong. This is a 3 act play.

BETTY

What are you doing in my house? (she pauses he doesn’t answer) And what’s that in your hand?

 

(Robin sheepishly holds his hand out to show her the wallet.  She grabs for the money angrily.  He shuts his hand quickly)

 

ROBIN

No!  I have to have that money.

 

BETTY

It’s my money and I need it.

 

ROBIN

I know!  But you see, I am Robin Hoodwink. 

 

BETTY

Don’t you mean Robin Hood?  And if you are Robin Hood, you’re stealing from the wrong person.  I am poor.

 

ROBIN

I know.  That’s because I am Robin Hoodwink, not Robin Hood.  I steal from the poor and give to the rich.

 

BETTY

But that’s the opposite of what you should be doing.  The poor have nothing and the rich have everything. 

 

ROBIN: Yes and if I take the money from the poor and give it to the rich, then the rich will finance my campaign for office.

 

(JIM enters. Crosses to Robin and whispers in his ear, then exits.)

 

Oh my campaign manager tells me I got that wrong. (speaking robotically) If I give the money to the rich then they will hire more people, pay them higher salaries and give more to charities.

 

BETTY

What charities?

 

ROBIN

Oh, you know.  The NFL, Nascar….the Republican party

MIKE

 

I was an idiot and I let the mortgage broker talk me into taking out an ARM.

 

JASON

 

Why would you do that?  Those are really bad mortgages.

 

MIKE

 

I know that – now.  I didn’t then.  The broker didn’t explain it very well to me.

 

(another woman has been listening behind him)

 

ANGELA

 

I took out an ARM, too.  The broker convinced me I could put my dead husband’s salary on the form.  Now, I’ve lost my home.

 

(a phone rings in the background)

 

JASON

What bank did this?

 

ANGELA

Silverman and Baggs.

 

JASON

 

Silverman and Baggs, but that’s my Dad’s firm.

(they both look away)

 

MIKE

That’s where I got my mortgage, too.  (looking around)  Where’s Leroy?

 

ANGELA

He went back to Kentucky.  Gave it up and moved in with his parents.

 

ALYSSA

 

Angela, phone for you. (Alyssa returns to what she was doing, Angela goes to the phone)

 

MIKE

(shaking his head)

 

That’s too bad.  Leroy lost his home, too.  What made him mad was that the guy next door to him worked for the same company, had the same salary, but he got a different loan… a better loan.  But they made Leroy take out an ARM.  Wouldn’t even consider him for a regular loan. Leroy thinks it was cause he was black.

 

JASON

 

No, I refuse to believe that! My Dad is not a racist.

 

Social Justice Sample

Who Is the Criminal?

  CEOs are having a conference/retreat and find a young man smoking dope.

TODD

(they cross to window, looking out)

Oh, I’ve seen bigger pools than that. The girls will be really impressed with it, though.

JOHN

Girls?

TODD

Hell, yeah! You think we would have a mountain conference and retreat without girls? Why else would we come to a place like this?

JOHN

I thought this was for business. You know going over our success for the year and all.

TODD

Oh yeah. We’ll be doing that, too. But this is also about rewarding us for our work, so off the books he’ll be calling in girls for our entertainment.

JOHN

Wow!

TODD

(laughs)

You are such a rube. I wish I could be in the room to watch you and the lady or ladies.

JOHN

(horrified at the thought)

No way! Sex … I mean that is private.
