The Sex Acts












Act 1
A fine spring morning


On a bench in a public park

a man and a woman are embracing passionately
From behind the bushes two computers are observing them


He
"I love you, Fanny!
"
She
"Don’t be silly, Willy"
He
"No! I love you! I really do! Don’t you love me?"
She
"Why, of course I do, you silly boy"
 ...


Act 2
A summer's afternoon

The couple sit apart

He
"I hate you, Fanny!"
She
"Don’t be silly, Willy"
He
"No. I hate you! I really do! Don’t you hate me?"
She
"Why, of course I do, you silly boy"
 ...


Act 3
An autumn evening

The couple sit side by side


He
"Reviewing our actions"
She
"We move through the days"
He
"Recalling with sadness"
She
"The error of our ways"
He
"Cowed by authority"
She
"Playing the fool"
He
"Thinking in clichés"
She
"Obeying the rule"
He
"Alone in our language"
She
"Faithful to none"
He
"Save that inevitable"
She
"Dark journey home"
...

Act 4
A winter's night
The park bench is empty
Behind leafless bushes the computers print out to each other

"What was all that about?
"
AI 2

"Log it as  meaningless sound"
