Setting: 

A playground at a park, late in the afternoon. There is a bench downstage center. There is an ice cream counter located upstage right. There is a “Hopscotch” game pattern grid front downstage center on the floor in front of the bench, but it is not imperative that the audience sees the grid. It’s only important for the actors to work with it. The remainder of the playground set may be as elaborate or as simple as the director or set designer wishes.
