A Midsummer Depressive Turned Comedic Night’s Daydream / Play

Source: Wikipedia

I just found a yellow sticky note (As they call them, they call it sticky because there is glue on the back) by my computer that is months old, on it were a few words I had written one night after work to remind myself of a daydream/play I made.

Months ago while I was at work, I remember being in a depressive-like mood, but at some point during work as I listened to some music, I started to daydream about myself making/staring in a play, then I started to feel better.

I can not remember much of it now, but on the yellow sticky note I wrote:

To be or not to be

Émilie Simon performance and scene

Cardboard replacements (standees)

Job Scene

Ending: Ask DNA (song) during the ending credits with dancing

I do remember one scene with two people walking out on stage, one of them looks at the other one and says: “To be or not to be, that is the question.”

And the other one looks at the crowd with a funny straight face, pauses, and says: “But what is the answer?”.

Then the crowd laughs, and the two people run back stage; end of scene.

I probably also imagined that between scenes, there would be performances by music artists like: Pauline Croze, Emilie Simon, and probably a few other music artists that I was listening to while I was daydreaming all of this.

I do know that one scene was to take place right after a Pauline Croze performance and Pauline Croze would be part of that scene, but I can not remember it.

I do remember part of a similar scene that had a Emilie Simon performance and then a scene with her right after her performance, and I was in that scene as well.

It had something to do with cardboard replacements (standees) of a person, maybe myself and/or her, I can not remember exactly.

The cardboard replacements were probably used by me to avoid getting attacked, by using them as a distraction while I hide or something; I do not remember, but I do know that it was something funny/wacky/goofy.

I think that and/or the Pauline Croze performance was to be / would be interrupted by me trying to join the band during the song, and Ms. Simon or Ms. Croze would get annoyed & they would start chasing me, trying to hit me with probably a guitar or something; but I can not remember.

There were probably some scenes making fun of my job, and some scenes that would get the audience involved in / with the play.

The whole play was mostly a comedy with some music, and there would be / was a dance at the end of the play.

I think the play was supposed to take place at my job and many of my co-workers were to be in it, and everyone would be in the dance at the end with the song Ask DNA from the Cowboy Bebop: The Movie playing.

The ending song would be played by the band while everyone joins / joined in with the performance and dance, and they would just have fun.

The play was about having fun instead of taking things so seriously, even the scenes were set up where the actors/actresses would not have to memorize lines, they would just be given a subject for the scene and they would do whatever they felt like for that scene.

So everyone would relax and they would just go out there to have fun, and they would try to get the audience involved.

That is about all that I can remember, it was so long ago and all I have is a few words on a yellow sticky note to help me remember.
