SETTING: A television screen.

(The players line up across the stage and the Person with Remote sits in front, facing
them. The Person clicks the remote and the TV goes on. When it is time for a new
player to speak, the Person with Remote changes the channel and says click. Players
are frozen when not speaking. You could also make a cardboard TV with a hole cut in
front for the screen that characters could stand behind when they are "on TV." When
the channel changes, the next character could pop up.)
