Episode 12 - The Introduction





INT.  STAGE.  BRICK HAS BEEN DOING A YOGA WORK OUT.  KIRANA, A REPETITUER WALKS ON STAGE.
KIRANA
Oh.  I’m sorry, I must be in the wrong place.

BRICK
(towelling down) Where did you think you were?

KIRANA
(blushing and confused) I was told to come to the stage for a rehearsal.

BRICK
A rehearsal of what?

KIRANA
Some sort of launch.  I am really sorry for interrupting you.  I must have the wrong time.

BRICK
No, no.  Please, stay.  I was just finishing up anyway.  (rolls up his mat) So you are rehearsing for the launch.  A women as beautiful as you must obviously be an actor.

KIRANA
And someone as forward as you must obviously be a tech.  Does your boss know you do yoga on her time?

BRICK
Maybe I am on a break.

KIRANA
A break from what?  The place looks deserted right now.

BRICK
My, my.  You are rather judgemental, aren’t you?

KIRANA
Look, I’m sorry.  I am sure there is a rehearsal about to start and if you get caught messing around you could lose your job.  You really should get out of here.

BRICK
You are absolutely right, my fair maiden.  I must go.  But please, just before I leave tell me one thing.

KIRANA
And what is it you want to know.

BRICK
Why, the name of the beautiful goddess I see standing before me.  I must know who it is I will start worshipping from now on.

KIRANA
(giggling) Don’t be silly!

BRICK
Seriously, what is your name, lovely one.

KIRANA
Mmmm.  I probably shouldn’t tell you, but...its Kirana.

BRICK
(clapping his hand on his heart)  Kirana!  To hear your name causes bluebirds to sing, and the sun to break through the roof and shine on my world.

KIRANA
Stop it.  (voices and footsteps).  Quickly, you must go, before they see you half naked and not doing any work.  I promise I won’t say a thing.

BRICK
Farewell fair maid.  Until we meet again.  (kisses her hand mockingly and leaves).


END.

Episode 14 - The Captivation

INT.  STAGE.  KIRANA IS PRACTISING ON THE PIANO
EDWARD (Stands, listening for a moment.  When Kirana stops he claps).  Wonderful playing my dear.
KIRANA Oh, sorry.  I didn’t see you there.  Nobody was here (looks to where Brick had exited) so I thought I would get a bit of practice in.
EDWARD No need to apologise.  That was positively delightful.  Was that the Moonlight Sonata or do my ears deceive me in my dotage?
KIRANA Yes.  Yes it was.  I have a recital coming up so I thought I would get in a bit of practice.  This is a lovely piano.  Such a joy to play.
EDWARD (chuckling). Yes, only the best for us – which is why you are here of course!
KIRANA I don’t know about that. 
EDWARD Oh, I am sorry, I seem to have made you a bit uncomfortable, and like the big oaf I am, I have not even managed introductions.  I, beautiful lady, am Edward Drummond, and you must be the lovely Kirana – pianist extraordinaire!
KIRANA (giggling) Yes, I am Kirana.  I believe I will be accompanying you and your daughter for a…
