Poor being Poor


Stage setting: A long, rough wooden table, about five metres long with a bench behind it, also five metres long. Behind the bench, within touching distance, stands a wall of green cans of Finkbrau beer, eight cans high, stretching the length of the table. Between the wall of beer cans and the bench sits a small rucksack which contains some clothes, a packet of cigarettes, a tobacco pouch, and a small, silver coloured transistor radio. There is also a solid, rough plank. There is food on the table. As the play unfolds, the table, as well as the floor surrounding it, are gradually covered in cans of Finkbrau. At the start of the play, there is no-one on stage.
