SCENE opens on Rachel, a 20-year-old girl, as she walks down the stairs and struts into her family’s kitchen — barely dressed and hair tousled from a late night out partying. Her younger step-brother, Nathan, is eating cereal and dressed neatly in his school uniform. When he sees her, he lowers his eyes in disgust and exclaims that she shouldn’t be walking around the house like that. Laughing at him, Rachel grabs some food and sits down beside her brother. She teases him for still wearing his uniformto school, even though he doesn’t have to. He’s 18-years-old and still acts like a school boy. Nathan tells her to leave him alone, he dresses like this because he is a good student. He’s planning to graduate and go to college, unlike her! Ignoring him, she continues to tease him and act like a bitch when Nathan mutters that she’s lucky his mom had to work the early shift this week because, otherwise, she would be in big trouble for making fun of him. She laughs even harder and calls him a mama’s boy before he slams his spoon down and storms out of the room.
