What you are about to read is a drama, a play. You may find it to be a little different from some other things that you have read. First of all, it looks different on the page. Characters names indicate that they are speaking; stage directions for movement, changes of light, mood and interpretation are in parentheses; descriptions of the way the stage is arranged, (the setting) are described in terms such as “stage left”; all in all, if this is the first script you have read, you may find it slightly confusing at first. But you will soon get into the swing of it, and will enjoy visualizing in your own mind the action, characters, and the excitement of it. If you have a chance, you might even read the lines aloud and try to make them sound as you think the character should sound. The most fun, of course, would be to take part in an actual production; To memorize the lines and to act a part; to run the lights, to paint scenery ; sew costumes, pull curtains or any one of the many jobs needed to put a play on the boards.
