Meet Flora Drummond

FLORA DRUMMOND

Flors is 15 years old and selfobsessed and extremely willful.  She is Ruby's youngest child and Edwards only daughter.  She is the apple of her dad's eye and has ben indulged and pampered by him since her birth.  Anything she has ever wanted he has acquired for her and he has allowed her to do anything she pleased her entire life.

Flora's attitude to her mother is one of contempt and dismissal, mirroring that of her father.  Flora sees Ruby as an irritating piece of furniture and the occasional rival for her father's attentions.  Flora does not bother to hide her disrespect and her father never requires it of her.  He contradicts any discipline Ruby attempts to impose and encourages Flora in her poor behavior towards her mother.

Flora does not know her half brother and sister well.  They were kept away at boarding school, and when they did come home for visits as adults her father would take her away on holidays.

Flora was never sent to boarding school.  She was kept at home and home schooled.  She has developed a sense of owning the whole world, and her friends are more interested in the free ride of indulgence they get from pandering to her, than any sense of care about her welfare.  Underneath she is a very longely girl.  Her father led her homeschooling and as a result she has not developed any sense of focus or application and she does poorly in her exams.  Flora has no intention of continuing her education past the minimum required.  

Flora sees this new theatrical venture as her big break.  She has stars in her eyes and has decided that she will instantly be an amazing actress and will become a famous Hollywood starlet by the end of the year.  Then she can ditch schooling and her family and live a life of fame and glamour and be known by everyone.

MICHAEL Wow.  What a lovely meal.  And the thing which made it lovely is sharing it with my two gorgeous daughters.
SIENNA It really was the most fun we’ve had together in a long time.
EMERALD I don’t think I have been this relaxed for weeks.
SIENNA I know what you mean sis.
MICHAEL I know.  These last few weeks have been insanely hectic.  Between getting the building finished and preparing for the launch there hasn’t been a moment to ourselves.
EMERALD Just remember, in two days time you will be as free as I am right now.  I can’t tell you how happy I am to not have to keep reworking Flora’s dress (chuckles)
MICHAEL Well, not really free girls.
SIENNA What do you mean dad?
MICHAEL Once the launch is over we pretty much have to dive into getting our first show up.  We have to maintain the momentum of the launch or else it is really all for nothing.  We have to try and stay in the public eye.  At least for the first year.
SIENNA Groan.  And I was really looking forward to a six month …
