Playella | Hooked by Daisy Watford

Emma (20) and her mother Jackie (48) are sat at a table. Emma is studying whilst Jackie, with lots of unopened textbooks around her, stares at a laptop.

JACKIE: Did you see what Sarah is doing?

EMMA: Sarah who mum?

JACKIE: You know Sarah. Ruby’s friend.

EMMA: Mum you’re supposed to be doing your essay not sitting on Facebook!

JACKIE: Yeah I’m only having a little break. Oh my god, Kelly is seeing Michael Buble! Lucky thing.

EMMA: Kelly who?

JACKIE: You know Kelly. You’ve got her as a friend on here too.

EMMA: Have I? Oh I don’t know. I hardly go on it.

Pause.

JACKIE: I can’t do this essay. I give up.
