The Apex of Friendzone

The world has been taken over by aliens. The aliens destroyed all human cities, and worked very hard to kill and obliterate all humans on the planet. They succeeded, sort of. They found two survivors, so they decided to put them in an enclosure, half zoo, half observation lab. The aliens are determined to coax the two humans into mating, to preserve the species. Only problem is, that both of the humans are men.

Pancho: Half Mexican, half Puerto Rican, tall, buff, tan skinned with a bubble butt, and thick wavy brown hair. He needs to be played by any Latino actor. Thick, buff, close to being a bear, must be funny and attractive.

Phil: Looks like harry potter. Tech nerd. Slim. White, must have really nice butt.

 

Xiorgklax: Is a dark blue, almost purple alien shaped like an octopus or a squid, with a single giant eye making up most of it’s head, it has tentacles under the head, countless, or (at least ten) it floats. The other aliens look exactly like it, just with darker or lighter purple colors.

SCENE 1                                 

Phil is onstage. He is naked. The magenta Squid-like thing floats into the room, the hundreds of tentacles coming from its head twirling and twitching like they always do never touch the ground. How they float like that Phil does not know. The purple squid thing’s giant red and orange eye with black pupils throbbing and double blinking seems lifeless. Two of its tentacles slowly nudge a loaf of the worst shit he’s ever tasted towards him.

The squid-like thing makes a noise,

ALIEN 1

Buurrrrrreeeeeeaaaaad!

They don’t seem to have mouths, or any that Phil can see, when they communicate with each other, they mostly vibrate and make clicking noises, so he doesn’t know where this sound is coming from. The ugly thing is trying to say Bread, though, he knows that much.

PHIL

You’re an ugly cunt. I know you can’t understand me, but, fuck you, you ugly alien cunt.

ALIEN 1

Brrruuuuuueeeeead! With more enthusiasm

PHIL

Fuck you and your bread, you fuck.

The squid like thing puts the bread brick down next to Phil’s bare feet and floats away through the entrance of the enclosure. From the fake cave behind him, you can hear the voice of a man waking up from a nap.

PANCHO

off stage, stretching noise, maybe a yawn Ooh, did they just drop off some bread? I’m starving!

Phil takes a very deep breath and lets it out very slowly as he stares up at the poorly painted moon above him. Then another and another, and another, and another, till Phil is breathing very hard and very fast, and his breathing turns into a panic attack, he pulls at his hair.

Lights out. END SCENE 1

SCENE 2

PANCHO

Hey you want half of this bread? Pancho calls from the cave.

Phil takes a deep breath and lets it out slowly, so he doesn’t scream, or start to sob uncontrollably again. Pancho, buff tan skinned with a bubble butt and thick wavy brown hair comes out of the cave he stands next to Phil.

PANCHO

Morning handsome! Pancho slaps Phil sharply right on his bare white ass.

PHIL

Dear god, I wish the fucking aliens would understand me when I try to explain clothes to them…

PANCHO

Duude, I got raging morning wood right now, look at it. It’s screaming for a blowjob.

PHIL

For Goooood’s sake, Pancho!

PANCHO

Look around buddy, GIANT FLOATING SQUID ALIENS, God does not exists! But you know what does? Bjs! Sexy wet bjs.

Pancho, sways his hips so his thick erect dark brown cock sways back and forth, Pancho then reaches down and pulls his foreskin back revealing a rather large deep purple cock head.Then makes it talk in a funny voice, could be Topo Gigio, or The Taco Bell Chihuahua Dog, or Donald Duck, which ever the actor can do accurately and loudly.

Buenos dias Phil! Give me a kiss!

PHIL

I hate it when you do that, stop it!

PANCHO

Aw but Sabado Gigante loves you, Phil!

PHIL

Stop calling him that! I fucking hate you Pancho!

He walks away from Pancho to another part of their enclosure.

PANCHO

But Sabado Gigante loves you, Phil! Why won’t you love Sabado Gigante, back!?

Pancho had named his cock Sabado Gigante.

PHIL

FUCK YOU PANCHO! AND FUCK SABAYDOS HEEGHANTEE! FUCK HIM I HATE HIM! I HATE THIS PLACE, I HATE THOSE FUCKING ALIENS I MISS MY WIFE! I MISS MY WIFE!!!    AAAAHHHH!!

Phil screams uncontrollably, falls to the ground, claws at the air, he’s having a panic attack, nervous break down. One of the Aliens floats into the enclosure, and zaps him with a laser, it looks like a laser or a lightning bolt, it is loud and sciencefiction-ie sounding.

AAK! Phil falls to the ground passed out.

PANCHO

Ha! Well, okay then…Sits on the ground, crosses his legs and starts to eat bread … more Bread for me.

End Scene Lights out.

SCENE 3

Phil is now awake, both men are sitting naked on the floor or one fake plastic rocks. Xiorgklax floats above them.

PANCHO

HAHAHAHA!

PHIL

No! No! No! NO! For being fucking aliens who conquered the earth, you fuckers are not very bright!

XIORGKLAX

It is ….important… to continue ….your species…   you both…. Must mate.

PANCHO

I guess we better get to work Phil.

PHIL

To Pancho FUCK YOU! To Xiorglax We are both men! Tell your leaders, we are both men! Don’t’ they know that?! Before they destroyed every single human being on the planet, they didn’t bother to learn the difference between men and women!?!

XIORGKLAX

…No….

PANCHO

Hahaha!

PHIL

Is this why you keep playing Barry White, and leaving cases of Smirnov Ice for us?! What is Smirnov Fucking ice the only alcohol that survived the destruction of all human civilization?!

XIORGKLAX

…   …   …. Yes….

PANCHO

I love Smirnov Ice Chucks some Smirnov Ice

XIORGKLAX

Forgive…leaders… not care…about how you reproduce…but you…must reproduce…they think it is important, for our scientists to make you breed…they don’t really know what a penis and vagina are…

PHIL

We can’t reproduce! WE CAN’T!

PANCHO

Dude, will you please stop screaming at the only alien who has been kind to us, Xiorgklax is the only one whose even bothered to learn English.   Puts his arm around Phil, besides, It won’t hurt to try, right? Phil pushes Pancho away in skinny white boy disgust.

XIORGKLAX

Forgive…they are going to keep trying to….coax you…to mate…till something…happens…but …Xioooorrgklax aware of how impossible…so…experiment…been injected both of you with, something that will help, ….reproduction…during sleep.

PHIL

Has another nervous break down, Aaaahh AHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

After his laughing screaming fit he dissolves into sobs. Very loud sobs, and falls down into a ball and hugs his skinny knees.

XIORGKLAX

Forgive… floats away and out of the enclosure

PANCHO

Pancho chugs another Smirnov Ice and sits next to a weeping Phil, pats him on the back.

There, there, Sad white boy. Come on, stop crying, they’re gonna zap you with that laser again if you keep crying, you know they don’t like it when you freak out. …come on…we’re alive, be grateful for that, let’s make the best of it, why you gotta be such a sad white boy all the time?

Pancho rubs Phil’s back, and starts to attempt to slowly give him a back run.

PHIL

I’m going to kill myself!

PANCHO

Dude, you know they’ll just zap you with that laser if you try to kill yourself again. Chill out, look at me I’ve never been zapped by their lasers.

PHIL

How the hell do you stay so calm?

PANCHO

Dude, come on, all the Smirnov Ice I can drink, free food, no rent, fuck, this is sweet! Plus I got a hot Harry Potter lookin’ white boy to stare at all day! You got a pretty dick too.

PHIL

You’re a fucking animal! Stop touching me!

Pancho stops touching Phil

PANCHO

Ew, Phil, why you gotta be such a homophobe?

PHIL

I AM NOT A HOMOPHOBE! Beat. You know before all this horrible shit happened I had no problem with queer people, or gay men, I loved gay men! Before all humans were killed all my cis male friends were gay men!

PANCHO

What the fuck is cis?

PHIL

When they told me that they’d found another human alive, the only one left alive after the culling, I was hoping with all my heart that it would be a woman, dear God I wept and prayed that it would be a woman! Then when you showed up I was devastated, another fucking man! But then, I was relieved to find out you’re gay, cause I thought, I’d at least have someone educated and cultured to talk to, BUT NO, I got some Mexican asshole who won’t stop trying to fuck me!

PANCHO

EXCUSE ME!, That’s Puertorexican.

PHIL

I thought I would get someone who is as well read on all the queer essays and articles, like me, but YOU DON’T’ EVEN KNOW WHO JUNOT DIAZ, IS! Before all this, I was a cis straight white man, who checked himself on his privilege, considered myself a staunch feminist, and you won’t stop slapping me on the ass!

PANCHO

But duuuude, that is one plump ass booty for a white boy, though!

PHIL

Have you even ever read a book?

PANCHO

Fuck No.

PHIL

What’s your favorite movie?

PANCHO

Actually means it, is pretty happy and proud that his favorite movie is all of the Fast and the Furious

Fast and the Furious! All of them! He is so excited about Fast and the Furious

PHIL

Even more distraught.

I miss my wife! I miss my wife so much!

PANCHO

I’m sorry man, rubs Phil’s back

Pause

PHIL

You know…before all of this, I had actually been a huge fan of aliens, ever since I was a kid.

PANCHO

Yeah? Still rubbing Phil’s back, now rubbing Phil’s knee, with his other hand.

PHIL

My favorite movies were “Explorers” with Ethan Hawk, and River Phoenix, “Earth Girls are Easy”, and of course “Prometheus”. So when aliens finally came to earth, I was thrilled. I even brought my son out to watch the giant ships float over the bay area. I didn’t know at the time that they had appeared all over the world, over every major city. My wife wouldn’t leave the house, she was terrified. Right when I said “Honey come out, there’s nothing to worry about,” was when the ships started shooting their lasers.

PANCHO

Wow, sorry bro.

Pancho has rubbed from Phil’s knee up his thigh and is now caressing very near his crotch.

PHIL

It happened so quickly, the mass murder of every single human being on earth, I could probably deal with the trauma better if I hadn’t had to watch everything from the windows of the alien ship that captured me, the blazing mushroom clouds, the cities left in endless deserts of ash, the sky nothing but black smoke. Even when I try to masturbate I can’t even think of any women, all I see is death, and fire and destruction AND OH MY GOD WILL YOU PLEASE STOP TRYING TO TOUCH MY BALLS!?

PANCHO

Okay, okay, sorry, sorry,…

Gets up, puts his hands up in the air, walks in a circle.

PHIL

What the fuck Pancho?! What the fuck! DO I HAVE TO LECTURE YOU ON RAPE CULTURE, AGAIN!?

PANCHO

WHY THE HELL YOU GOTTA ALWAYS PUT ME IN THE FRIENDZONE, PHIL?! Huh?

They stare at each other in great anger

We’re both men! We GOT NEEDS! There is no one left alive on the planet, you’re not just putting me in the friendzone, Phil, you’re putting me in the MOST ULTIMATE APEX OF FRIENDZONES, DUDE!”

PHIL

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS THE FRIENDZONE!! Dear God! How the hell did human women keep from killing all of us?! This is horrible! You’re horrible!

Phil gets up to walk away from Pancho!

PANCHO

Fuck you, Phil! And you know what?! Prometheus sucked!

PHIL

What?

PANCHO

Fuck that movie! Fuck you! And Prometheus, suuuuucked!

PHIL

Prometheus was an intelligent well-made prequel, it was a- gets cut off

PANCHO

a dumb ass piece of shit movie, awful! Crap! How the hell that white girl be walking around after giving herself a c section FUCK THAT SHIT! Don’t you ever say the word Prometheus to me ever again!!! There are only two good Alien movies, Alien, and Aliens, THAT’S IT, TWO!?

PHIL

Wait, what? What about the third one, and part four? There are five Alien movies, YOU FUCKING IDIOT!

PANCHO

THERE ARE ONLY TWOOOOOO!

 

Both men run at each other, after four or five punches, they begin wrestling, at first standing, then on the ground, there is a lot of pressing into each other, heavy breathing, it basically looks like angry sex, it is pretty hot.

Then the aliens appear, zap them with their lasers.

PANCHO, and PHIL

AAAAAAHHHH!

Both men fall on the floor unconscious.

END SCENE.

SCENE 4

It is dark inside their fake plastic cave where Pancho is asleep on a soft mat on the ground, arms and legs spread out wide like a star. Maybe he is snoring a little. Phil stands at the entrance of the cave, looking horribly lonely, hair a mess, maybe he’s been crying. He looks around the cave. He walks in slowly, and stands at the foot of the mat, staring down at Pancho. After a moment Xiorgklax floats in.

 

XIORGKLAX

It has been …5 of your …earth months since you …have interacted….

PHIL

I needed my space. …and he kept trying to put his finger up my ass.

XIORGKLAX

Leaders…are angry…you must …reproduce!…

PHIL

Still staring at Pancho.

You’re smart Xiorgklax, you know that’s not gonna happen. Pause. How is it that he can sleep, so soundly? Why isn’t he having nightmares like me?   I came back two weeks ago, and saw caught him masturbating, how the fuck can he do that? Every time I try to think of naked women all I see, is people being killed by lasers, or on fire.

XIORGKLAX

You here, to mate? Both now can…reproduce…injected you both with serum, to help. You should mate!

PHIL

No! Finally turns to look at Xiorglax Injected what? You can’t be serious! You don’t have a mouth, I can’t tell if you’re serious.

XIORGKLAX

Why are you here… if you are not here to mate?

PHIL

It’s been a little cold on my side of the enclosure, alright?

XIORGKLAX

The enclosure is kept at a temperature that should be more than comfortable for humans-

PHIL

Alright! It’s been a little rough, okay? I told Pancho to stay the fuck away from me, and I went to the opposite end of the enclosure, but I didn’t think he would actually stay away from me. I asked him to leave me alone, turns to look at Pancho, and he did, Never takes eyes off Pancho I was very surprised. But it’s been, you know, it’s been, there’s not much to do over there, with all those plastic rocks, and plastic trees, all I do is stare up at that poorly painted moon, and well, it’s been…lonely…

XIORGKLAX

Do you want a Smirnov Ice?

PHIL

No, I don’t want afuckingSmirnovIce! Beings to walk towards sleeping Pancho. I just…I just want…I just, it’s been so long since I’ve…heard…I can’t believe I ever took it for granted…gets down next to Pancho on the bed, sits looking over him. Then slowly trying not to wake Pancho, leans down and puts his ear to Pancho’s heart.

Sound Cue: Faint comforting heartbeat, with some slow instrumental, inspiring music, not dramatic, or campy.

Phil lets out a long, long elaborate sigh…and closes his eyes. …My god, I haven’t heard a beating heart in so long, …it’s so… starts crying, not loudly, just slow weeping. Instinctually, in his sleep, Pancho reaches up and hugs Phil, Phil lets Pancho hug him. They embrace. Xiorglax slowly leaves the enclosure to give them privacy. Pancho wakes up. He does not let go of Phil, but is surprised he is there.

PANCHO

Aww, sad white boy…why you crying?

PHIL

Your heart. It’s so beautiful. Can we please just hold it each other without you trying to be sexual with me? …I just need human contact… I just…need-

PANCHO

Sure. Pats Phil on the back, as friends.

PHIL

Really? Sits up. You’re not going try anything?

PANCHO

Nope. Sits up, they are still in some form of embrace. You’re the only other human left on this planet, I don’t want to piss you off, I know I tease you, but …I actually like you, Sad White bo- Stops himself. …Phil. I actually like you, Phil.

Phil smiles for the first time in the entire play, he stares deep into Pancho’s eyes, Phil is full of joy. Pancho looks down.

And from the size of that boner, I think you like me too. Ha, JK, man, I know you’re straight, it happens…wanna take a nap together? Go eat some crappy alien bread? Throw some rocks?…

Phil tenderly kisses Pancho on the lips, it lasts a touching moment, then they pull back surprised, then they energetically begin to devour each other, in one hot make out session with a passion that only the last two humans left alive can conjure. Phil jumps on Pancho and straddles him as they continue making out, as the lights go down, you can see Pancho fist bumping the air to himself, Phil doesn’t see it, then you hear Phil say

PHIL

I can’t believe I’m doing this!

Lights out. END SCENE 4.

SCENE 5

 

LIGHTS UP

Phil is standing, Pancho is on his knees, we can see the back of Pancho’s head. Phil is in heaven.

PHIL

OooooooohhhhOOOOohhhhhhoooohhhhhh grabs on to Pancho’s head by his hair, face fucks it. DEAR LORD! Buckles over. AH! Buckles over. G’aaaahh!, Shivers, JEEZUzzz! Heavy Breathing, panting.

PANCHO

Looks up. Was that okay?

PHIL

Are you kidding?! That, was, the best blow job I’ve ever had, IN MY LIFE!

LIGHT DOWN

LIGHTS UP

They are slow dancing. It is elegant. Phil has his head on Pancho’s shoulder.

PHIL

So she never?

PANCHO

No she hated dancing.

PHIL

But you were a salsa teacher.

PANCHO

Still.

PHIL

But you’re so good, I mean I never danced a day in my life and look at me. Pancho dips Phil.

LIGHT DOWN

LIGHTS UP

Spotlight on Phil, his face is ecstatic, his hair is wild, sex hair if you will. He is sitting down on the ground. The ground is dark. He is breathing heavily, he is out of breath.

Pant, I mean, I knew about it, I had read several articles, pant, but I never in my wildest dreams, gasp, OOOOh my god, I mean, I had heard that some straight men experimented with it, but I had never been AAAAHAHHH GAWD! –curious myself, Oh! Oh! Oh! Where did you learn that? OH! I mean, even if I was I’d never in my wildest dreams would ask my wife to put her gasp in my, OH MY GOD, YOUR TONGUE IS AMAZING!

Lights come up now to show that Phil is sitting on Pancho’s face. Phil has an orgasm as lights go down.

LIGHTS UP

They are slow dancing again, even more elaborately now. Maybe a decorative foot kick or two.

PHIL

And you slept with how many men?

PANCHO

She didn’t care. My wife slept with men and women sometimes, we had a great marriage. How many lovers did you have?

PHIL

My wife was my first girlfriend. We lost our virginities to each other. I never cheated on her. I loved her very much.

Phil dips Pancho. Or tries to, they laugh.

LIGHTS DOWN

LIGHTS UP

Pancho is reenacting a scene from The Fast and The Furious, Phil watches jaw dropped and impressed by Pancho’s Vin Diesel impression.

PANCHO

You, almost had, me? You never had me! You never had your car! Granny shiftin’ not double clutchin’ like you should! You’re lucky that hundred shot-a-noz didn’t blow the wells on the intake, HA, you almost had me! See now me and the mad scientist over here, we gotta rip apart the block, and replace the piston rings that YOU fired. You ask any racer, any REAL racer, it don’matter whether you win by an inch, or a mile, son! Winning’s winning!

LIGHTS DOWN.

Sounds of love making. LIGHTS UP

Phil is making love to Pancho slowly, on their sleeping matt. Pancho on all fours, Phil pressing his cheek on Pancho’s shoulder blade without moving as he moves his hips. It is quite lovely. They are both enjoying it very much.

LIGHTS DOWN.

LIGHTS UP

Phil is facing the audience but he is trying to be in character as Elizabeth Shaw the main character of Prometheus, that one terrible movie which was awful and no one liked. He is having fun at first reciting the lines, but then he remembers that everyone on earth is dead, so he begins to get emotional. This is a very sad moment in the play, should not be campy at all. But it is toootally okay if the audience laughs. They should, this is very silly but Phil is taking it very serious.

Final report of the vessel Prometheus. The ship and her entire crew are gone. If you’re receiving this transmission, make no attempt to come to its point of origin. beat. There is only death here now, pause and I’m leaving it behind. It is New Year’s Day, the year of our Lord, 2094. My name is Elisabeth Shaw, …last survivor of the Prometheus.

Pause and I’m still searching.

LIGHTS DOWN

Sounds of Phil screaming from an orgasm. LIGHTS UP

Phil is on all fours, but then gets up on his knees, he is out of breath. Pancho is behind him. Phil leans back, Pancho puts his chin on Phil and says

PANCHO

And that, Pulls finger out of Phil is your prostate.

PHIL

Ah!    Looks down. I didn’t even touch myself. It’s everywhere.

LIGHTS DOWN.

LIGHTS UP

Both men are sitting with their elbows on their knees looking up.

PHIL

I miss the real moon.

PANCHO

Me too.

LIGHTS DOWN

LIGHTS UP

Phil is screaming but out of pure pleasure. He is on all fours, Pancho is making love to him from behind, aggressively.

PHIL

I love you! I love you! I love you! I love you! HO my god, oh my god, that feels amazing! Oh my god!

PANCHO

Finishes. IIIIIIIII fuuuucking love you PHIL!

LIGHTS DOWN END SCENE

LIGHTS UP SCENE 6

Both men are staring up at Xiorgklax. Pancho is pregnant He’s showing a little.

PANCHO and PHIL

What?!

PANCHO

I thought I was just getting fat.

PHIL

This can’t be happening. I heard Xiorgklax tell us he it injected us with something to help, but I didn’t register…this is…

PANCHO

AMAZING!

PHIL

What?

PANCHO

Don’t you see dude?! We’re having a baby! I’m making a baby! In here, one more human! One more human, dude!!

PHIL

Yes, …yes…kneels down to look at Pancho’s belly. Three humans is better than just two. Phil Kisses Pancho’s belly.

PANCHO

I’m gonna LOVE the hell outa this baby! Beat. Wait, Xiorgklax, how I am I gonna give birth to this baby?

LIGHTS DOWN.

SCENE 7

Lights up. Xiorgklax is in the enclosure with Phil who is inconsolable. He is pacing back and forth. Shaking. Maybe wailing but not too loud. Mumbling.

XIORGLAX

Forgive, Phil, friend, scientists did best…forgive… they not know human anatomy like Xiorgklax, …. they cut Pancho completely in half…forgive…so sorry Phil, please forgive…

PHIL

Alien scum.

XIORGKLAX

The offspring …alive…

PHIL

You killed him. How could you kill Pancho? He was so nice to you, he was so nice….

XIORGKLAX

The baby is alive, Phil! FORGIVE!

PHIL

HOW COULD YOU!!? ALIEN SCUM!!! I’LL FUCKING KILL YOU!!!!

Phil runs towards Xiorgklax, aliens zap Phil, he falls to the ground.

XIORGKLAX

Forgive!…forgive!….forgive…forgive

END SCENE 7

SCENE 8.

Back of a cabin. Phil is on the deck. He is surrounded by a dense forest, but he can see the sky. There is a moon out tonight. He is wearing clothes. He is drinking water from a canteen. His hair is longer maybe, maybe he has a beard. He is barefoot. He speaks into a recorder.

So yeah …that’s what happened. …Dad 2 and Dad 5 think the past is unnecessary, but I think it’s important you know. You’re too little now for me to tell you these things, also I want to get it down before I forget… After your father Pancho was accidentally killed by the invaders, they felt so terrible, they decided to let me go. To let you and me both go free. Somehow watching your father and I…interact, made them feel …something, …made them feel bad about what they did to our kind. I woke up here on our island. Xiorgklax gave me a backpack full of supplies, water, tools, and told me he, it, had found four living humans, survivors of the invasion hiding out in a cabin deep in the woods…I was excited about one or two of them being a woman, but …no…all men, …all gay…Xiorgklax gave me some of the serum that makes men be able to reproduce, Xiorgklax improved it though, so we could easily give birth after 9 humans months, that’s how I helped make your brothers. Xiorgklax handed you to me, wrapped in a blanket and gave us a gift, a promise. Xiorgklax said they would leave us alone. They’re hoping to share the earth with us, but most importantly they’re going to leave us alone. So far things have been pretty peaceful, and you fill me with so much hope, every day more and more, you have your father’s face, his nose, his lips, you do have my eyes, but you have his smile. If, something happens, …to me, before you grow up… listen to these recordings, I’m going to tell you as much as I can about your father, the man you came from, and don’t listen to Dad 3, he’s wrong. Just because the aliens are convinced they killed everyone on the planet, doesn’t mean there may not be other survivors out there…Vin, nothing is impossible.

I haven’t said much about me so far, um…I liked coffee a lot before, you know, well, I miss women a lot, I’m sad you don’t know what women are. I miss movies. I don’t miss phones, or I miss…I miss…Sometimes, I come out here on the deck, after all the kids are asleep and the dads are asleep, I look up to the real actual moon, that is still there,

and I think about the love of my life…

this is Phil, Dad 1, signing off.
