Treatment for the Drama

We start our scene with our protagonist, the writer, a male aged 35, in his room lost in his thoughts.
He then proceeds to go to the desk in his room, where he has a typewriter. We watch him change the ink ribbon, while reminiscing about his father and how the family admired the way he took care of the typewriter.
Our writer then starts to write the second chapter of his story, titled “The first Kiss”.
We are then introduced to this young couple, a male aged 21 and a female aged 20, having a date in a park, we soon realise that it’s the couple in the writer’s story.
There will be a voice over of the male protagonist telling the audience of what is happening, the writer lets us know that the date is of a memory of the boy in the story who doesn’t recall much but the essentials of that first kiss. He remembers things like the girl’s name and the fact that he had never met anyone with the same name as her, and he also remembers how soft her skin was and that at the time he thought she was pretty.
Whilst in his own world – the writer – starts to mix-up between the real and the fictional, getting into a writers high. We transition back and forth with the loss of touch with time and reality, he sees himself as the character and the same things starts to happen to him, he too loses his teeth and hair, having big chunks of it falling on his hands and on the table.
The writer stops typing and it brings us back to reality, where some time has passed. The room is a mess with coffee mugs and paper scrunches scattered around. We’re then shown the writer and how he’s normal and no harm has happened to him and that he was just imagining it all.
