The Characters:

MOM:
A Midwestern savant

A Floridian idiot

The Scene:

A TV room in Florida.

ACT ONE

SCENE ONE

MOM and HANNAH watch television. The music indicates an interlude in the television program The Great British Bake Off, during which scenes of pastoral landscape are tradition. In this case, the characters perceive an animal of presumably British origin. 

HANNAH: WHAT IN THE HELL WAS THAT?

MOM: [Incredulous, celebratory.] It was a chicken! [Beat.] There are all kinds of chickens.

Long pause.

MOM: You should look up chickens.

Fin.
