Zeresh at Vashti's Party

VASHI'S PARTY


Vashti is surrounded by mirrors and jewels and is constantly checking herself in mirrors and sucking in her cheeks/pulling back on her skin to face -lift...


VASHTI


(waving a diamond necklace toward Zeresh) lazy, lazy, lazy. That’s my husband for you - had this bauble deliiiivered (whispery stress) to me instead of bringing it himself. that’s what I get for marrying down.


ZERESH


Ha lazy! Haman, he never takes out the garbage. One day, I tell ya', I'd just like to dump the can whole of garbage right on his head...


VASHTI


fabulous plan, dahrling. (smacks hand of servant [with tail] who tries to move one of her hand mirrors out of arms’ reach and glances at him with a look:) I don’t think so.


SLAVE


Queen Vashti-


VASHTI


oh joy. another interruption, this is NOT good for my beauty regimen...


SLAVE


A messenger is here from King Achashvairosh.(who? Achashverosh)


VASHTI


my worthless, social climbing husband? I'm breathless with anticipation...


SLAVE


yes. Umm, I mean no. I mean he is, but he's not....Aaaaaah! (Runs away


LESTER


um, Queen Vashti?


VASHTI


(bored)

what is it already?


LESTER


uhhh...King Achashvairosh demands your presence at his party now.


VASHTI


(turning slowly toward Lester zooming closer and closer into her evil face)You tell that pathetic nouveau-riche excuse for a monarch that if he wants me to come to his party he should hoist himself from that ridiculously oversized throne and carry his ever-widening girth to my chambers Himself!


LESTER


[sighs] I knew you would say that.

VASHTI


What did you say?!


LESTER


I said, I knew you would say that - I mean... I know exactly what is gonna happen!


VASHTI


(looks at Zeresh)


well zeresh dahrling, it seems we have ourselves a regular fortune teller! Okay, fortune boy - tell me my fate - what’s going to happen to me?


LESTER


(sighs again)
well, after he finds out you're not coming, Achashverosh is gonna get preeety upset. Then one of his advisers is gonna suggest that he executes you to teach all the ladies a lesson that they gotta listen to their husbands. Since Achashvairosh is so drunk - he's actually going to go through with it, and kill you.


[Vashti stares glaringly at Lester, then slowly to Zeresh, (who slowly shrugs), then back to Lester]


VASHTI


His party eh? Well you know, he is using my entire trousseau - the leech - including the fine gilded tableware and even the vessels of the Jews’ holy temple...i wouldn’t mind soaking up some of that silver spoon treatment myself...
Zeresh, darling, are you with me?


ZERESH


whateveh!


[Both Vashti & Zeresh get up and walk off]
