All stare at Tony. Tony looks at the group. He takes a few seconds to think. He looks back at the door. The tension is evident.
Dan : Tony?
All stare at Tony.
Tony : (Quietly) I… I don’t know.
We hear things such as “I don’t believe this” and “This can’t be happening” etc. from the rest of the guys.
Jimmy : Come on Spencer, you’re brains of Britain, can you not use that computer thing to do something?
Spencer : Like I said, any interference with the alarm system and the police could be notified in seconds.
Jimmy : Well don’t interfere with the alarm, do something else.
Spencer : Like what?
Jimmy : It’s a computer isn’t it? Send an email to someone.
Spencer : I don’t think you quite realise what this machine is designed to do. It is the latest in computer technology giving the user access to a wealth of databases across the world including governments, banks and major businesses in all major cities.
Jimmy : But can it send an email?
Spencer : Well… no. But if you look at this function…
Jimmy and Spencer continue their conversation (mimed) while Jez speaks to Tony.
Jez: Well Tony… had time to think?
Tony : Actually yeah… yeah I have. Guys…
All stop to listen.
Tony : I know this doesn’t sound like the best solution, but having thought about every other possible option… this is the best.
Jez: (Frustrated) Get on with it.
Tony : OK… we set off the alarm.
Colin laughs. After a few seconds he realises that this is not a joke.
Colin: Set off the alarm? Like… really set off the alarm?
Tony : Yeah.
Jez: Sorry to sound pessimistic Tony, but
(Shouting) HOW THE F--K IS THAT GONNA HELP OUR SITUATION?
Dan : (Panicking) I cannot go to prison, no way, I am not going to prison!
Tony : (Trying to convince) No-one’s going to prison.
Spencer : Not strictly true Tony. This sort of crime carries a minimum of a ten year jail term.
Tony : I mean, we won’t be arrested. I’ve got a mate. He works on the force and he’s the one who deals with this sort of stuff. He could find a way to get the charges dropped. He’s reliable, he wouldn’t let me down.
Jez: So what you’re saying is that we bunch of criminals should pin our hopes of freedom… on a cop?
Tony : Trust me.
Jimmy : Sorry Tony, but no way, no way am I relying on a cop.
Tony : (Pleading) Jimmy, you know I won’t let you down, you know it.
Jimmy : But he’s a cop.
Tony : Trust me… please.
Silence. The group look at Jimmy in anticipation of his reaction.
Jimmy : You better not let me down.
Jez: (Angry) Are you soft? He got us into this mess. Setting off the alarm is the worst option!
Jimmy : Worse than dying?
Jez: (Angry) Yeah… much worse. (Pause. Jez looks at the rest of the group) I say leave the alarm alone. I’d rather take my chances we get out some other way.
Tony : What other way?
Jez: Don’t know yet. But I am not going down because you f----d things up. Who’s with me?
Silence. Spencer eventually puts his hand up.
Spencer : Sorry Tony… I wouldn’t last a day inside.
Jez: That’s two all. Colin?
Colin: (Confused) I don’t know. I just wanna get out.
Tony moves next to Colin.
Tony : (Pleading) I’ll get us out.
Jez ignores Tony and moves to the other side of Colin.
Jez: He’ll get us banged up though.
Tony : Colin… please… just trust me.
Colin: Sorry Tony… I can’t go to prison. I need to be out. I’ve got things I have to do.
Tony : (Raising his voice) He’s not even got a plan.
Jez: That’s three-two. All on you Dan.
All look at Dan. Dan looks nervous.
Dan : I don’t wanna do this.
Jimmy : Well you haven’t got a choice. If you come with us it’s a tie.
Dan : And then what?
Tony : We vote again.
Jez: And if it’s still a tie?
Tony : Then we keep voting until we get a decision. (Pleading) Dan… please… I know what I’m doing.
All still looking at Dan. Dan looks at them all before fixing eyes with Tony.
Dan : No… you don’t… (Getting angry) this is all your fault… I say leave the alarm.
Jez confidently steps towards Tony.
Jez: Four-two. Time to step back Tony. Looks like a new leader has been chosen.
Tony and Jez stand face to face in silence as the others watch on. Eventually Tony backs off and sits down.
Jez: (With confidence) Right, new plan. Spencer, you say that computer has access to databases across the world?
Spencer : That’s right.
Jez: If you can’t send an email, can you at least change some data?
Spencer : I can move things around, yes.
Jez: Good. Go to a company called ‘Gleeson and Henderson Limited’. Go in to their catering section and change anything, so that it says something along the lines of “Jez in trouble, need help at bank”.
Spencer : Consider it done.
Spencer begins to type on his machine.
Jimmy : (Incensed) How is that gonna help? We’re relying on somebody at this company looking through the data, and by chance seeing a message that they then have to decode. And if you need reminding we have… twenty minutes’ air time left.
Jez: (Raising his voice to silence Jimmy) My brother works there. He will be working as we speak.
Dan : But how will he know what the message means. Unless…
Tony quickly stands.
Tony : You told someone?
Jez: (Strongly) Too right I did. You didn’t think I was gonna trust you to get this right. I was protecting myself.
Tony : But we said tell no-one.
Jez: You also said you’d sort this all out. But you didn’t. So sit back down.
All look at Tony. Tony is a defeated man. He sits back down.0November 27, 2016 at 7:33 pm #903315
All look at Tony. Tony is a defeated man. He sits back down.
Spencer : Right, that’s done. If he’s looking at the data he won’t be able to miss it.
Colin: Now what?
Jez: We wait.
Dan : (Panicking) But what if…
Jez: My brother won’t let me down. We wait.
One by one the guys all sit. There is an air of fear. Dan takes out a flask and goes to drink.
Jimmy : What’s that?
Dan : What? Nothing.
Jimmy : (Annoyed) You’ve got a drink and you’re not sharing? Give it here.
Jimmy snatches the drink and takes a big gulp. He looks Dan in the eye before passing it to Colin.
Colin: I don’t normally but… but what the hell.
Colin takes a big drink. He passes it to Spencer.
Spencer : Thanks.
Spencer drinks before Jez snatches it from his hands.
Jez: Save some for the rest of us.
Jez drinks. He thinks about passing it to Tony but throws it back to Dan. Dan goes to drink but notices Tony. Dan moves towards Tony and holds out the drink. Tony looks at Dan.
Tony : No… you have it.
Dan : There’s plenty for both of us… here.
Tony takes the drink. He takes a gulp and then passes back to Dan who puts the flask back in his pocket. Dan sits back down.
There is an awkward silence.
Colin begins to tap his fingers. Jimmy slowly looks up. He is clearly annoyed by Colin.
Jimmy : If you don’t stop I’ll break them.
Colin stops. He looks around, bored.
Colin: We haven’t got a name.
Jez: (Confused) What?
Colin: We haven’t got a name. Like a group name. Think about it, all groups have names.
Dan : Like who?
Colin: I don’t know. ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ or ‘The Fantastic Four’.
Spencer : ‘The Famous Five’.
Jimmy : ‘The Magnificent Seven’.
Jez: ‘The Seven Dwarfs’.
Dan : ‘The Secret Seven’.
Colin: (Getting excited) ‘S Club 7’.
They all stop and look at Colin.
Dan : ‘The Three Musketeers’.
Jez: ‘The Three Little Pigs’.
Colin realises something.
Colin: Hey… have you noticed… there’s none with six… and we have six… that means we’re new… we should have a new name.
Spencer : Like what?
Colin: I don’t know… what about ‘The Slick Six’?
Jez: (Sarcastically) Not very slick though, ain’t that right Tony?
Colin: Alright… ‘The Six Musketeers’.
Jimmy : I thought you wanted something original, you’ve just doubled the three.
Colin: (Becoming annoyed) Well you come up with something then.
Jimmy : (Raising his voice) I don’t want to. You brought up this stupid name thing.
Silence. Colin looks unhappy.
Colin: Just trying to pass the time… didn’t want to do this in the first place.
Jimmy : (Annoyed) So why come then?
Colin: Coz he ( pointing at Tony ) said I could get the money I needed.
Spencer : What do you need the money for?
Colin: None of your business.
Tony : (Softly) Tell them Colin… it’s a good thing.
They all look at Colin.
Colin: My wife… she’s having a baby… well… she’s having babies… it’s twins… girls… I just needed the money to set us up… wish I hadn’t bothered now.
Jimmy : I can’t believe that… you’re married! She must be a right…
Tony : And why did you need the money again Jimmy?
Jimmy : You know why… up to my eyes in debt… this was supposed to clear everything I owed… not much chance of that now.
Tony : Spencer?
Spencer : Guilty pleasures I’m afraid. There’s a new device being developed that will allow access to ‘The White House’ files. Costs a large sum though.
Jimmy : What about you Tony?
Jez: (Trying to provoke a reaction) Him? He doesn’t need the money. Loaded aren’t you Tone?
Spencer : So why set this up if you don’t need the reward?
Tony : Don’t listen to him. I need the cash just as much as you lot.
Jez: And can we ask why?
Tony : You can… but I won’t tell you.
Jez: Nobody want to know why I want it? I don’t. Don’t want it. Don’t need it.
Colin: So why do it?
Jez: Just for the thrill Colin dear… just for the thrill.
Jez lies down and puts a pair of sunglasses on.
Jimmy feels warm so starts to undo his collar.
Jimmy : Phew… is it me or is it getting warm in here?
Colin: No, it’s starting to hot up.
Spencer : That’s the oxygen level dropping. I hope your brother sees that message soon.
Jez: He won’t let us down… like some.
Jez looks at Tony.
Tony : Why can’t you just leave it? I’m sorry, OK? I don’t know what happened.
Dan starts to feel sorry for Tony.
Dan : It’s not your fault Tony.
Tony : (Upset) I just don’t know how this happened? I planned everything. I planned it so carefully. It’s like… it’s like someone has been working against me… trying to make me fail.
Dan : Who would do that Tony?
Tony : I don’t know… but I’ve got a pretty good idea.
Tony looks at Jez.
Colin: I really don’t feel well. I’m just gonna have a lie down.
Spencer : Good idea.
Colin: What about you Jimmy?
Jimmy is sat up but slouched and doesn’t answer.
Spencer : Don’t wake him.
Spencer and Colin lie down.0November 27, 2016 at 7:41 pm #903320
Spencer and Colin lie down.
Music is heard as time passes. During this time all the guys lie/sit/lean against the vault. After a while Tony speaks. His voice is quiet and hoarse.
Tony : Colin… Colin… what time is it?
Tony : Colin?…Jimmy?… Are you OK Jimmy?… Shit… Spencer?
Tony : Jez… I think the others are… Jez… Jez, you listening?…
Tony : This is it… shit, I can’t believe this… I…
Dan stirs and wakes. He looks around the room before standing up.
Tony : Dan… Dan, is that you?… the others… check on the others…
Dan stands and looks around the room. He checks on a couple of the group.
Dan : (Calmly) They’re dead.
Tony : Dead? No, they can’t be… how can they be dead but we’re… you’re… I don’t get it.
Dan ignores Tony and reaches into a draw (under a level) and pulls out an envelope. He puts it inside his jacket.
Tony : What’s that?
Dan : (Calmly) This? Nothing. Just something that is of great value to me. This, Tony, is the reason I’m here. But then again, you didn’t ask me did you? (Slightly angry) Not important, am I?
Tony : I don’t get this, how are you… I feel so ill… I feel so sick.
Dan : (Calmly) That will be the lack of oxygen. It’s a real killer. Look it’s been fun but I really must be going. Hey… thanks Tony, I couldn’t have done this without you.
Dan goes to leave. Tony realises what is happening.
Tony : Dan… you set me up… you bastard…
Dan stops. He turns and crouches next to Tony.
Dan : Don’t take it personally Tony. I was racking my brain how I could get in this vault. You see, I really need this envelope, but how could a guy like me break in to one of the most secure vaults in the world? The answer… I couldn’t. Well, not on my own. And it was just pure luck you asked me to be involved. So… thanks… thanks a lot.
Tony : Why like this? Why couldn’t you just take that thing anyway? We wanted money, not anything else.
Dan : Oh no. This envelope that I now hold is huge, it’s going to make big news all over the world. And I could not risk it being traced back to me. Anyway… time for me make a move.
Dan gets up. Walks to the keypad. He takes out a piece of paper and types in a code. The sound of the vault door opening is heard.
Tony : I don’t get it. The oxygen. Why are you not… like the others?
Dan speaks with a very ‘matter of fact’ tone.
Dan : Did you know, for health and safety reasons, it became illegal to make vaults air tight due to the high number of accidental deaths of employees?
Tony : So… they’re not dead?
Dan lets out a small laugh.
Dan : Oh no, they’re dead… (His tone turns sinister) and so will you be… very soon.
Tony : But how…
Dan takes out his flask and pours the drink over Tony’s head.
Dan : Drink up Tony, come on, have a bit more, ha, ha, ha.
Tony coughs and chokes as the liquid hits him.
Tony : You bastard. You’ll never get away with this.
Dan: Of course I will. Tomorrow morning the police will find the bodies of five criminals after a bank job went horribly wrong. After getting locked in the vault they made a decision… that death was better than prison. So… they each took a drink and slowly faded away. (Dan wipes his fingerprints off the drink bottle and places it in Tony’s hand) Meanwhile, the missing document will remain a mystery.
Tony : You bastard!
Dan gets up and goes to leave. He stops with his back to Tony.
Dan : Just one last thing… you never said what you wanted the money for?
Tony : My Son… he’s sick… he needs treatment in America… I need the money to save his life.
Long silence. Dan looks like he may change his mind. However, the moment soon passes.
Dan : I’m sorry to hear that.
Dan steps outside the vault, puts on his shades and goes to the keypad. He presses a button and the door closes.
