The Canvasser

a ten-minute play

 
 
 

Synopsis

Shayna and Shoshana are sitting in their apartment, busying themselves on their smartphones, trying to order food for delivery, and ridiculing Rivka, that girl they hate who they hear is a Communist. When a canvasser comes to their door to encourage them to vote in the upcoming election, Shayna and Shoshana don’t really listen to what the canvasser has to tell them, even though their grandchildren and their great-grandchildren and other people from the future are all sitting in the audience watching to see what they did when the worst was happening.
