ACT I, SCENE I

(SUNDAY: In Angela’s dining room. They are all sitting in chairs.)

(Sophie, Angela and Holly are talking. James makes a loud farting noise. Everybody laughs.)

ANGELA’S MOM

Hey kids, how’s it going?

HOLLY

It’s going great Mrs. W.

ANGELA’S MOM

Hey, I was wondering if you wrote poetry.

HOLLY

I write like an angel!

(Bats eyes and smiles widely)

SOPHIE

I can write… I guess.

ANGELA’S MOM

OK, good, good. I know Angela and James…

(Looks over to James)

James, quit making faces!

JAMES

(Makes faces while he’s saying)

I’m… not… making… faces!

ANGELA’S MOM

(Sighs)

Well, I got this flyer from my friend that said there was going to be a poetry contest held for ages 13 plus. You just have to write one and send it in.

ANGELA

Squeals) Oh, that’s so cool!

HOLLY

Ooh! A poetry contest! I never knew that this day would come in my young, fame-filled life!

ANGELA

Oh as if!

(Sticks out tongue at Holly)

So, mom, when do we have to send them in?

ANGELA’S MOM

The deadline is next Tuesday, so start now. I’ll get some paper.

(James pokes Holly in the arm)

HOLLY

Angrily) Ow! Quit it stupid!

ANGELA’S MOM

Sternly and annoyed) James P. Walker! Apologize now!

JAMES

Mutters) Sorry . . . oh yeah Holly, you’re Holly right?

(Angela’s Mom walks over to a cupboard. She goes to get paper. Walks back to the table. Puts paper on the table.)

ANGELA’S MOM

I’ll be in the living room if you need me.

(Walks off stage.)

(Everybody is quiet. They have dreamy and bored expressions.)

(Holly looks over at everybody)

HOLLY

(Empathizes “bored” is held out long)

Sighs loudly) I’m so bored!

ANGELA

Well, let’s talk ‘bout what we wanna write about… I mean, so then we can, like, get more ideas and stuff. You know…

JAMES

Say, does anybody wanna piece of pie now? I’m starved.

(James walks over to the counter. Then grabs a pie tin with a pie in it, gets a spoon, turns towards the girls and begins to eat the entire pie.)

ANGELA

Shouts) Mom! James is being a pig! He’s eating pie and not sharing!

ANGELA’S MOM

Screams from offstage) James P. Walker! Get your butt over here this instant!

JAMES

(James mouth is full of pie)

Shouts) Buff mum! I waf hungee!

(He meant: But mom! I was hungry!)

ANGELA’S MOM

Screams) Oh for the love of Pete, James, get over here right now!

(James stomps off stage)

HOLLY

Angrily) Man, James is such a… boy!

SOPHIE

Did you want him to take that as an insult?

ANGELA

Oh man, it’s late. I should go get my mom; she’ll probably take you guys home after she’s done yellin’ at my alien.

HOLLY

Did I ever mention that you’re mom is da bomb?

ANGELA

I think so. Tomorrow at lunch, I wanna work on the poem together so like, be there!

Y'know, usually I'd object to that comment. But for once...you're right. Slag me off.

By the way, your play seems quite realistic.

I have deleted the rest of them. Please do not clog up the board with unnecessary topics. If of course, I have deleted some of the wrongs, sorry. But it was horrendous how many topics you posted. I assume you have them saved on your computer, so as none of the ones I deleted had any comments, it doesn't matter.

Well obviously I got the impression that my first one is a waste of space and therefore nobody read it because it was long as well... I'm breaking it dwn to bits as to not scare you.

Good but one thing....

YOU ALREADY SENT IT, DELETE IT NOW! A WASTE OF SPACE IF IT IS ALREADY UP THERE.

Sorry, but I dont like it when they take sooooo much room.





Also. Jack, why do I feel like you are responsible for spamming the site with the Bee Movie quote in the quote generator. *looks suspiciously*
