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.

Meet Emerald Bannister

EMERALD BANNISTER

Emerald has had a difficult life lately. It did not begin this way.  She was raised in a beautiful, loving family and traveled the world with them.  She and her sister, Sienna, were best of friends despite the age difference, and both shared the dream of becoming actors like their father.  The talks Michael was having with Disney was actually for a television series starring both young women and their future looked bright.

Five years ago in Las Angeles the family were driving home from dinner when a drunk driver ran into their car.  Emerald's mother was instantly killed and her father and herself were permanently injured.  Only Sienna escaped unharmed and even though her sister stayed with her and supported her completely, Emerald could not help feeling resentment that she was left unscathed.  

Emerald suffered burns to 40% of her body and has been left with permanent burn scars on her legs and face, as well as an enduring weakness.  The doctors have done what they …
