Sample Dialogue

EMILY WALLY (V.O.)
(writing the letter)
Please understand that this is my
only option. I cannot continue to
be a part of this horrid family,
where I am clearly not appreciated
nor wanted. You may consider this
my formal resignation from
humanity. P.S., Please return this
book to Ms. Zeffrey by the
seventeenth. She hates receiving
books late. Thank you kindly.

Hello Father.
WILFRED WALLY
(eating)
I saw you walk in from across the
street and I thought I would come
say hello. What do you have there?
Emily pulls the book closer to hide it.
EMILY WALLY
A book.
WILFRED WALLY
What book?
EMILY WALLY
Are you going to Boston tomorrow?
WILFRED WALLY
It’s my play’s opening weekend. Do
you want to know what it is about?
EMILY WALLY
Not really.

1.
INGRID WALLY
(frustrated and embarrassed)
Emily, get off that ledge this
instant before someone sees you.
EMILY WALLY
Good. I want them to see.
FREDRICK WALLY
Would you get down already? We know
you aren’t going to do it.

2.
EMILY WALLY
What makes you so sure I won’t?
EMILY WALLY
I can no longer live amongst their
disdain and plain disinterest in my
affairs. Henceforth, I declare
myself orphan. Dooley may lie here
in this grave, but it is I whose
name should be written upon the
tombstone.
