At this point, I really have to admit that I haven’t thought through the consequences of posting this online. As I said, Kevin Chang seems like it should be a common enough name that he is as unlikely to find it if he googles himself, as I am to find him. Still, it isn’t totally impossible. If this work starts getting the attention it deserves, who knows, maybe he’ll come across it. And I don’t really know the intellectual property status of things that you just find somewhere. I know that there have been magazines and radio shows that relied on found materials, and I’m obviously not profiting from this in any way, so who knows.
There is also the possibility that other, innocent, Kevin Changs will start finding these polluting their search results. To these Misters Chang, I am sorry. You don’t deserve this association. But if you’ve looked at any of these I think you’ll have to agree that the world is a better place for having this posted on it.
The final scene is amazing. So many things happen that are bewildering or unstageable. It really speaks for itself. Once more into the breach, dear Kevin Changs:
Scene 7 – The Chaos
Scene: Back in the present. Old Man is sitting watching Jin-Mei, Ping, and Pong playing basketball. Jin-Mei is dressed in a basketball outfit. She owns both Ping and Pong by dodging both of their tackles.
Pong: (taking his breath) Yo Ping… Wat’s goin’ on wit dis honey? We got owned!
Ping: (taking his breath) Damn Straight. I mean… True dat.
Pong: Wake up ya fool. We better start rackin’ up dat ball!
Both of them try stealing the ball from Jin-Mei, but she swiftly dribbles past them. Both ball to the ground.
Jin-Mei: Come on Boys! Is that all you got? I want to play more!
Pong: (catching his breath) Time of babe… I’m outaa gas.
Ping: (catching his breath) Damn…… Straight……
Jin-Mei: Aw… fine. You party poopers!
Old Man: Now, now my little girl, at least let them take a break.
Jin-Mei: Yes, I know… I was just playing with the (giggles)
Panda enters the stage holding the mirror. It puts down the mirror facing toward the backstage.
Jin-Mei: (gasps) Mr. Panda!
Old Man: Panda? Why are you here? I told you to stay home!
Panda: Making gestures.
Old Man: I see…
Jin-Mei: What happened?
Old Man: The boy we left behind… even with that perfect disguise, the plot fails…
Jin-Mei: Oh dear… is Lon alright?
Pong: Yo wait a sec, did you just say… Lon?
Both Old Man and Jin-Mei turn silent.
