Act III, Final Scene

ACT III, FINAL SCENE Act III, final scene, psychodrama script- the world is ushered off into history's crypt. All the super heroes lie slaughtered on the floor while apocalyptic addicts are screaming out for more. A handful of patriots ride the airwaves into night broadcasting dire warnings to bring the truth to light. General population is glued to the TV set watching situation comedies, smoking cigarettes. The program's interrupted by a special news update "World War III declared" more details at eight. General population pumps his fist hard into the air grabs himself a six-pack and settles back into his chair. Less then twenty cases later he is morgue decor from the radiation resulting from the war. The tube becomes his headstone, body decomposing on the floor beneath blue light TV flickering...1984.
