Paper or Plastic
Written by Werner Trieschmann
For her first job, teenage Sarah thinks she’s easily qualified to check out customers at Puritan Foods, her local grocery store. At least it has to be better than serving up greasy fast food, right? But Sarah isn’t prepared for Carl, the assistant manager, who refuses to deal with unruly customers because he’s too busy putting up Christmas displays in August. And she isn’t ready to deal with the customer who can’t put down her cellphone long enough to acknowledge that Sarah is there. Or the two dudes who use their time in the checkout line to launch into an existential argument about the environment. And what about the mysterious cowboy or, even worse, Angus, the person who Carl warns Sarah about the day she’s hired. Then there are her crazy co-workers who put on camouflage to hunt down stray grocery carts or live in closets and subsist on Twizzlers to avoid Carl. All Sarah wants is the answer to the simplest question in the world: Paper or plastic?

Our Place is a one act play comprised of five different scenes featuring different characters who visit the same wooden dock that extends out onto a lake. The motivations for each character’s visit to the dock are different, but through humor and tragedy, they all learn what it means to experience joy and sorrow, love and heartbreak, and ultimately, life and death.
