Show Real Drama
Susie and Fabian are actors that needed a showreel. Because they didn't have any acting jobs they decided to write a script for scenes they would like to act one day. They made two scenes. In the play these two showreel scenes function as the brakes between the acts Show, act Real, and act Drama.
While they are in the back of the stage - Their text is referring to their relationships and memories.
When they are standing in the front of the stage, their text is referring to the stage and their acting career. When they are reaching the center of the stage they are reenacting their showreel or dialogs from the past.
