What happened to the characters in Jez Butterworth’s Mojo?

You know how it is. One thing led to another and a casual conversation turned inspiration to map the future of all the characters in Jez Butterworth’s Mojo. Thanks to revstan and @emst for contributions and ill-judged encouragement.

Without permission and with sincere apologies to Jez Butterworth. References to the 2013 production at the Harold Pinter theatre, directed by Ian Rickson.

Important Things

Man: I want to say something but don’t know what.
A Second Man: You want to say nothing then.
Man: No, I know there is something to be said.
The Second Man: But not by you.
Man: It has to be me.
(pause)
Man: I am the one who knows it needs to be said. I have to say it.
The Second Man: It must be very important.
Man: It is.
The Second Man: I only have time to hear important things.
Man: I only have time to think important things.
(pause)
Man: I only think important things. But never find time to say them.

The End
