Kate enters the stage with a bag of popcorn. She sits down in a chair facing a screen with her back to the audience. She eats popcorn while she watches the screen.
On the screen appears the following text-based slides:
[a story begins]
[a character (maybe main, maybe peripheral) is closed off from the world and from themselves]
[through a series of tender and emotional realizations due to new, life-affirming activities, the character becomes aware of the beauty in humanity and achieves a sense of personal epiphany]
[shortly thereafter, the character dies]
Kate: WHAT. THE. FUCK.
Slide: [solemn, poignant lessons are internalized by the remaining characters]
Kate: This is bullshit.
Kate throws her popcorn bag at the screen and walks away.
Slide: [a story ends]
