Daisy is Daisy
Jessica- Shy, Passive
Daisy- Snobby, Popular, Rude
Rebecca- bystander, very stupid
Setting- These three girls are teens that are in high school. Daisy is the ‘it’ girl and Rebecca follows her around all the time. Jessica is the nerdy girl that doesn’t have any friends.
Act I Scene I
At school Rebecca and Daisy are talking in the hall
You wanna know something?
(Looking at her nails)
(looks over at Jessica)
We have a pretty bland life.
(jerks head in direction of Jessica)
It’d be more fun with THAT in our life.
(Daisy jerks her head again) ,
(She rolls her eyes)
We should have her be our friend.
(looks at Jessica and then leans close to Daisy)
How would that be fun?
(moves her close to her locker)
Do you see how nerdy she is? Like, come on, we could totally, like, change her into someone cool.
(Closes locker and starts walking to Jessica)
(scream at the other side of the hall where Jessica is alone)
Hey, Jess! OMG, you look so good today!
(Rebecca follows along)
(Looks down and fidgets with the bottom of her shirt)
You really think so?
(get’s a glare from Daisy)
So, we wanted to know if you wanted to go to the mall or something!
(plasters on a fake smile)
(Smiles a little)
(Looks at Rebecca knowingly)
Because we want to get to know you.
I guess I can go with you guys.
(claps while jumping up and down)
Yay! This is gonna be so fun!
I hope so.
(The three of them walk off)
Act I Scene II
All three are at the mall and are searching for dresses.
(steps out of dressing room with a black dress on)
Don’t I look really good?
(Looks at Daisy and admires her)
Oh, my god! You look amazing! That dress fits you so well! Plus your hair, it looks so red! I can’t believe how great you look! You should definitely buy that dress Daisy. I so wish that I looked like you! You could be a model.
(skips back into the dressing room)
(moves closer to Jessica and whispers)
Isn’t she just amazing?
Yes she looks so beautiful
You could be just as beautiful.
No, seriously! All you have to do is get some highlights in this black mop, wear better clothes and you could get so many boys coming to you.
(contemplates for a little)
Actually, you guys really look alike!
(Comes out with another dress on)
What are you guys talking about? Me, I presume?
No of course not-
No, love! Just girl talk!
(winks at Daisy)
Act I Scene III
Rebecca and Daisy are in th the middle of class
Dais, I think we’ve come too far.
Wait, what are you talking about?
Jessica, she’s like, completely different. Have you seen her? Her hair is permed to be curly like yours and she is dressing exactly like you. She told me today that she got bored of her hair and is changing it to red. Just like yours.
Oh, my God. Rebecca you are so paranoid sometimes. It’s fine. She just loves me, just like everyone.
(puts hand on shoulder)
It’s fine. We have her right where we want her.
(pushes hand off and Daisy looks offended)
Daisy, I couldn’t be more serious about this. She stares at you
(rolls eyes again)
Rebecca, I’m alive, aren’t I?
(Stands up from seat)
Whatever, I’m leaving to go to the mall with Jessica. Don’t text me because I won’t be answering.
I wish that I could join you guys when you are at the mall, but I have to do the stupid thing with my mom. I want to protect you.
(Daisy ignores her)
Act II Scene I
Jessica and Daisy are at Jessica’s car driving to the mall. The music is loud
(Leans over and turns down the radio)
(Turns up the music a little)
What? Can’t it wait till after the song?
(Turns down the music again)
It’s really important, so I think you can handle not listening to the rest of it.
Okay, my little spitfire. What’s so important?
(Looks back and forth from her and the road casually)
You see me as a good friend, right?
Sure, I see us as pretty close.
(looks at her completely and leans closer)
(Looks away nervously)
I’m… not sure?
(Slyly Smirks and leans closer)
Closer than Rebecca?
(Starts getting scared)
The only thing that is closer is your face, back up.
(Stays up and her smirk widens)
So you say we are not as close?
Jess, I’ve been friends with Rebecca since kindergarten. I’ve known you for, like, three months.
(Her face drops)
(Abruptly goes back to her seat)
Does that mean…
(Face hardens and jaws tightened)
That you wouldn't die for me?
(Gets as close to her side of the car as possible)
Jess, are you, like, okay and stuff?
Oh, yeah, fine. I can see things clearly now.
And how is that?
(looks Daisy in the eyes)
That I will never be enough.
(looks forward and steps on the gas)
(Turns to the road also)
Woah, Jess what are you doing?
(Continues to stare at the road and shrugs)
I have other plans for us.
(Looks back and forth to the road and Jessica)
Wait, and what are those?
(Smiles a little)
Well, we aren’t going to the mall for one.
Okay? Then where to? Where are we gonna go?
(Jessica ignores her)
Jessica, you’re really freaking me out. Cut it out! You aren’t being funny right now.
OMG, like, you should just chill, Daisy. We’re going to my place
Act II Scene II
Jessica and Daisy are in Jessica's basement. Jessica is standing by the door and Daisy is tied up.
Jessica? What the hell is this?
(looks down at tied up arms and legs)
Let me go! I didn’t do anything!
But this is about you
Okay, well do I have to be tied up for this?
Like, come on, we can just go upstairs, eat some lowfat greek yogurt and talk.
It’s too late for that now, Daisy.
(starts to cry)
But, I didn’t do anything wrong! I’m perfect and I demand you to get this stupid rope off of me!
(Ignores her pacing back and forth)
What the hell?! Seriously! This isn’t funny, like at all! Just let me go! Ugh. What do you want? Money? Clothes? Me to pick you over Rebecca? I can do that! You are my favorite! My bestie!
I already said it’s too late. Now shut the hell up before I tape your mouth.
Do you even know what it’s like being me? Do you know how lonely it was before you came along? 3 years I had nothing. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, NO FRIENDS, NOT EVEN A FAMILY. You wouldn't even know that. You don’t pay attention to anything but yourself.
(Takes deep breath)
Anyways, I’m getting off topic. Well years ago I had a friend. She was a sweetheart, you know? The type of girl you can’t help but enjoy being around, even if you had different interests. But she left me, willingly. She left me high and dry and you’d think I’d be used to it, but nope! I was hurt! Still am!
(Sharp turn to Daisy)
But then you came along, you finally gave me a place. A friendship. And Daisy Love of all people! The one person that never even looked at her best friend, Rebecca. After you showed me what it was like to have fashion, to have taste, I needed more. I still need more. I felt like being with you guys, I mattered, but it still wasn’t enough. Rebecca was better than me and that isn’t okay! You have to like me more! Everyone has to like me more so I thought…
Hey, I look just like you. The only difference is our hair, and you know how easy hair is able to be fixed.
(Looks at phone)
I’m actually getting it done in an hour, so let's speed this up. Anyway, long story short, I’m gonna be you now. I’m gonna get all the attention and an actual family, I’ll have the clothes and-
(Shakes out of daydream)
But you, you’ll be nothing. You’ll be in an unmarked grave.
Grave? You’re gonna kill me? No! I’m too young! I have to take care of everything I have! My car, my clothes, rats can get to them omg! I have my diet! Omg, if you feed me I need carrots! Slim body is key!
Oh, that’s just minor details, I can do all that now. Don’t you worry your pretty little head off. I think I’m going to get rid of the dog though. She might know it’s not you, and I don’t need that little flea bag blowing my cover.
Please, don’t hurt Princess! Please! She didn’t do anything!
I guess you should have thought of that when you decided to befriend me.
What does my dog have anything to do with being your friend? That doesn’t make any sense!
It doesn’t matter, I’m the one with the knife here. I’m the one in charge.
A knife? Omg, no way! Ugh, this is worse than the day that my hair turned out to be autumn sunrise and not fresh strawberry!
Oh, my God. Shut the hell up!
(Bites lip to stop saying things)
You know what? Why am I even letting this go on?
(Walks towards Daisy)
Act II Scene III
Rebecca stands in the school hallway waiting for Daisy to meet her.
(Walks up to Rebecca)
(turns and looks at her)
Hey, Dais, how you doing?
Omg, things are going just great.
(Stares at her for a moment)
Dais, you look… different.
Whatever do you mean?
Like, your hair.
I know it didn’t come out as autumn sunrise like I wanted. Omg. Let’s not talk about that Bec
Oh, girl, I’m so sorry, omg.
Do you want to hang out.
What about Jessica?
She’s old news now. We got into a confrontation.
Oh, that makes sense! She was starting to creep me out anyway.
Now it’s just you and me Rebecca.
