12 Plays of Christmas (9 of 12)

Introducing…the 12 Plays of Christmas. Over the next 12 days, I will write 12 one-act plays that illustrate life in the Nuckols home. Additionally, we will perform these plays for you and put them up on the site.

 

Snuggle

SHANI is in the kitchen on the phone. ALEX enters.

ALEX
Snuggle?

SHANI
We’ve got good momentum for the SMART initiative and
I think we’re going to get into Moorestown school for it.

Alex tries to cling to her leg. Shani shoos him away.

Scene shifts to the living room. MIKE is watching a show on his phone. ALEX enters.

ALEX
Snuggle?

MIKE
Alex, I’m watching a show that’s not appropriate for you.

ALEX
Sons of Anarchy?

MIKE
Yeah – they just beat the crap out of a bunch of white supremacists. It was awesome.

Alex leaves.

Scene shifts to upstairs hallway. Alex opens Jack’s door.

ALEX
Snuggle?

JACK
Get out of my room!

Scene shifts to Alex’s room. Alex dumps all his stuffed animals onto the bed. He buries himself in it all.

ALEX
Snuggle.

END…WAIT

SHANI, MIKE, and JACK all rush into the room and jump onto Alex.

SHANI, MIKE, JACK
JAMS* SNUGGLE!

END SCENE.

*”JAMS” snuggle is our cutesy/annoying term for a snuggle involving our entire family. It stands for Jack, Alex, Mike, Shani.
