Script Sides (Performer)

Ext. Circus tent - Day

A circus performer comes up from behind Clyde, who is peeking inside of the tent.

PERFORMER
She's been like that ever since he disappeared.

CLYDE
Isn't she always like that?

PERFORMER
(smiling)
Well, true. But she's always had a strong character, that one. Even as a little girl. Like her father.

CLYDE
You knew her as a little girl?

PERFORMER
I'm older than I look. I started here back when Zeph's old man was running the show.

CLYDE
What happened to him?

The performer looks away, avoiding the question.

CLYDE
So, about this clown--

PERFORMER
Yes. Funny kid. I feel sorry for Zephy. Her father took him in when he was just a boy. They were about the same age. He was like a big brother to her.

CLYDE
Huh. Interesting.

PERFORMER
Why do you say that?

CLYDE
(off-guard)
Oh-- My parents abandoned me, too.

PERFORMER
I'm sorry to hear that. Nobody deserves that.

CLYDE
Eh, shit happens. That's just life. And look at me! I didn't need them.

PERFORMER
Everybody needs somebody.

The performer gives Clyde a hug, Clyde tenses up and smiles awkwardly as he walks away.

He looks back into the tent.
