For school, I need to write a one act play, and mine is about jazz musicians who are poor but are then discovered by some guy from a well known jazz label and then become famous. Anyway, In part of the play, one guy is late to a gig, so I need a logical reason why a jazz musician would be late to a gig as a result of being poor. This is due tommorrow, so I really need some help quick. Thanks.

Well, I thought about him not having enough money for the bus, but the price for a bus is only like 50 cents, and this character has enough money for the bus. Saying that he doesn't have enough money for that is like saying that he's a dirt poor hobo, but he isn't yet.

got mugged but fought his way out, he could come in all beat up and bloody... it would really play on the fact that he's poor and really make you feel sorry for him


I don't think my teacher would allow me to make someone messed up bloody in my play. Also, it has to be more clear that the reason why he is late is as a result of being poor.

He got into some bad business with a guy, and he got beat up before the gig.

His guitar strings needed changing unexpectedly?

If she doesn't think that's good enough shout to your teacher "NO ONE UNDERSTANDS US!!!" and then run outside screaming.

He was working overtime to get extra money? I don't know if the character has a job.

he was late because he slangin dope to help make up for his being a poor struggling musician and all
#17
Use a reason anyone might be late for just applied to a jazz musician. From hang over to traffic to child birth. It would all fit.

Oh yea, that's good. Ok, he lives in New York City and he is going to a gig at the Blue Note. The year is 1958 and he is a pianist. What is his job that he is staying overtime for?

Oooh, maybe he's late because he had to play an encore at another gig where he was a blues musician, and he plays the blues because he's unhappy that he's poor.
