 I love language arts: books, plays, poetry; you name it, I love it. I’ve always liked it but what really hit it off was when I took a theater class, I was hypnotized. I was determined to write my own play, and I am succeeding! I love writing. It’s like making my own world! Here is a sample of my play. I now present to you the opening scene of my play, "Trust Me."

 

Trust me

Scene is in the sitting room of New Hope orphanage. Nicky is at a desk writing a letter with an eagle quill.

 

Nicky:

There. Laying down his quill. All done.

He rolls up the letter and tying it with a ribbon. Just as he is finished, Raven enters from stage left.

 

Raven:

Nicky? Yawning.What are you doing up at this time of night?

 

Nicky:

Just writing a letter before bed. What are you doing up?

 

Raven:

You know me… just making sure people like you are in bed, come on..

Raven starts to pull Nicky to stage left.

 

Nicky:

Wait, do you remember your folks?

 

Raven looks a little sad, then shakes her head.

Raven:

No… I don’t, come on it’s late.

 

She starts to pull Nicky, and they exit stage left. Lights go out. Scene is in New Hope’s breakfast table. Nicky enters yawning.

 

Nicky:

Good morning Raven. Mind if I sit with you?

 

Raven:

Good morning Nicky. Of course you can sit with me.

He does so.

 

Raven:

Who where you writing to last night?

 

Nicky:

No one important. Why do you walk around at night?

Raven:

I don’t know, it just feels right. Biscuit?

 

Nicky:

Thank you. Taking the biscuit.I had a weird dream last night

 

Raven:

Really? I had a dream I was a buffalo that... never mind. What did you dream?

 

Nicky:

I think I dreamed of my folks but I…I just don’t know..

Nicky looks down sadly, and Raven puts her arm on Nicky’s shoulder.

 

Raven: Oh Nicky, I know what you mean, not knowing anything. C’mon, let’s go on a walk, that always helps me when I have nightmares.

 

Nicky: Ok let’s go, but first, let’s eat.

 

Raven: Oh Nicky!

Hope you like it as much as me!
