Van Man by Pol Mag Uidhir - short version
Van Man - Pól Mag Uidhir         

WOMAN
Excuse me, sorry we’re closed.
MAN
Is this your shop?
WOMAN
Yes
MAN
And… Mr Dublin?
WOMAN
My husband… But its mine now. The shop, the house, the whole damn business.
MAN
That's nice. Sorry, you are busy and I am keeping you back…
WOMAN
Myself and Mr Dublin, never really saw eye to eye, you see. He was a bit of a bastard, actually.
MAN
I’m very sorry to hear that.
WOMAN
Don't be.
MAN
The reason I stopped is…  this is a bit embarrassing. My name is also Peadar Dublin.
WOMAN
That's unusual
MAN
It is. That's why I stopped...
WOMAN
Well as long as you're not another smarmy womanising Peadar Dublin, you're alright.
(pause)
Would you say I looked like someone who could make a man happy?
MAN
... I expect so...
WOMAN
But you are not sure.
MAN
Its difficult. I don't know you
WOMAN
Would you say I was attractive?
MAN
Yes
WOMAN
Reasonably attractive? For my age.
MAN
Yes. Certainly
WOMAN
Would you do me a favour. When my husband arrives, tell him that you are the original Peadar Dublin and you have finally come for me...
