Part One  Oedipus House

JOCELIN, 40s, casual clothing, apron, cutting vegetables in a chef like rhythm, is addressing ROSE, 30s, casual clothing, standing next to the chopping block. They are in mid-conversation.

JOCELIN
....I’ll probably have to go back to court next month anyway because my son has no balls.

ROSE
Excuse me?

JOCELIN
My son has no balls!
Roy has to make up his mind if he wants to be with me or the ex .

ROSE
You mean his dad...?

JOCELIN
Yes. Catch up, will ya?!
He’s thirteen. 
The law says he has to chose. Who he wants to be with.
Roy has to emancipate himself.
He has to stand up and declare himself.

ROSE
I see.

JOCELIN
Now we have this crazy schedule.
The stupidest thing ever.
And whenever that child does come home, his homework is never done.
