Setting: A high school theater tech weekend.
Director: All right! We still have lots to do, but we need to eat lunch! Actors, if you’re not doing anything, go ahead and eat!
A few minutes later.
Director: OK, all the actors can go eat. And I guess you guys who are painting can go ahead and take a break.
A couple more minutes
Director: Great! Everyone but (lighting designer), (sound designer), (stage manager) and (assistant stage manager), go get lunch! You have 20 minutes!
A few more minutes
Director: Oh, I guess you guys have to eat too. Umm…go ahead and see if there’s any food left. You have 5 minutes.
Stage Manager: They’ve already let people get seconds. There’s not going to be anything but very sad lettuce left.
LD: But we got so much done! It was a very productive break.
