THE CLUB

 

 

 

SCENE FOUR

 

THE DOOR OPENS AND DICK AND IAN RETURN AFTER THEIR SMOKE OUTSIDE. THEY SIT BACK DOWN AT THE TABLE WHERE DICK PICKS UP HIS GLASS AND TAKES A HEAFTY SWIG FROM IT BEFORE SETTING IT BACK DOWN.

 

DICK:

‘This smoking ban has killed the pub trade.’

 

LARRY:

‘I don’t know about that but the beer prices have rocketed over the last ten years no wonder no one can afford to come out for a pint.’

 

ALAN:

‘I wouldn’t object if they built a separate room inside for smokers as long as they didn’t smoke in front of me as it kicks my asthma off.

As for the beer prices we have to remain competitive with other clubs because the club would close otherwise.’

 

IAN:

‘Oh come on Alan, the club on the high street is selling John Smiths for one pound fifty and the Carling larger for One pound sixty. They are packed out every lunch time.’

‘Ask your committee why this is so?

 

ALAN:

‘Yes but look at the clientele that get in there Ian, the place is a shit hole.’

 

IAN:

At the end of the day people go there for cheap beer.’ the beer in here is two pounds forty a pint, I’m sure if they lowered the prices in here there would be more people coming in.’

 

ALAN:

‘We would end up losing money man; the club would be bankrupt within a year.

 

DICK:

 ‘How can you lose money? Stands to reason if you get more people in then you make profit.’ Look at how many people get in each lunch time.

 

ALAN:

‘You don’t want riff raff getting in do you Dick?
