Int: The Crystal Palace, tickle chamber

PENELOPE is sitting at the lab table reading documents pertaining to marine biology, a bucket of multicoloured, gyrating tentacles by her side. She furrows her brow in contemplation of these difficult matters. LEO enters from the Yellow Gardens with a tray of new samples, which wriggle about sleepily. They have the build of large shrimp, but the texture of salmon and each has a beak, a horn and a pair of vestigal wings.

LEO

Latest haul from PROFESSOR SPECTRE. Do you have time to take a look at these?

Int: the Gastronomy Institute, seclusion chamber.

FRANK is in the room, alone. He is sitting in a special chair, his limp frame propped up by various wires and contraptions. The chair sits inside a complex, oval MEDICAL POD that monitors his existence. FRANK’s mind is connected to gastronomical devices through a tube sticking out of his brain stem. His hands are bandaged, his skin is pale, and his eyes are completely white. He sings-

FRANK

Ho hum, diddle and dumb –

Singing a soong in a hospital roongm –

Where is the future, where is the past? –

Have the vultures made off with my mystical staff? –

Staff in the sense of personnel, you see –

Not a magic cane that could delight you and me.

Int: the Intensifying Hearts Club & Leisure Centre, in the women’s bathroom.

The women of the town – SALINA the rooster, MARCIA the mental case, MONICA the lovestruck fool, PENELOPE the betrayed lover, MADAME MORGANNA the matriarch, EDITOR the complainer, and a number of unnamed ones – are gathered in the bathroom. All of the women except for MADAME MORGANNA are in full histrionic meltdown.

PENELOPE

A new girl? A new girl in our town?

 

MONICA

That’s right. A beautiful one, too.

 

PENELOPE

PAULETTE…. Her name is.. PAULETTE!!?

 

MONICA

It is, I’m afraid. She is PAULETTE, the new girl who just arrived to our town a few hours ago.

Int: Location unknown, the Committee Interrogation Chamber

A dark room with stone floor, a stone door in a stone wall, and a vast black nothingness ahead. DADDY and ANGÉL GABRIÉL are standing in what little light there is, looking out into nothing. ANGÉL is standing further back, by the door, fidgeting, clutching himself and looking extremely nervous. DADDY stands in front, cross-armed, with a steely expression full of disappointment and barely-suppressed indignation.

ANGÉL GABRIÉL

I don’t like this one bit, sir. I feel far from good.

 

DADDY

No shit sherbet. This isn’t something meant to be liked in any way. And keep your voice down, everything we do or say is being recorded. Our very minds are being analysed, so keep your wits about you.

Int: The Gastronomy Institute, treatment room.

MARCIA is lying on an observation sofa. She is semi-catatonic, but her eyes are open. Her expression is tormented, lost. Streaks of mascara from her red eyes all the way to the floor – that is how much she has been crying. DR. ADAMSON is sitting in a chair by the desk. He is holding a large double scotch and cradling his tired head in his free hand.

DR. ADAMSON

Oy vey. Another week, another complete disaster. Will all our schemes be undone again?

 

MARCIA

Aaah… Gord loveeee phah…

 

DR. ADAMSON

I sure wish you weren’t so heartbroken and catatonic, MAR. You make even worse company than usual. Ah, women….

Ext: The baybee park by the Intensifying Heart Club, summer. 

DADDY is taking the baybee for a walk in a stroller. He is sitting on a bench, enjoying an ice cream, and the baybee is sleeping peacefully. FRANK is lying face down in the grass, twitching and shivering in a state of bliss.

DADDY

Quite a lovely day to take SALINA and ANGÉL’s baybee for a stroll, wouldn’t you agree, my good chap?

 

FRANK

Quite so indeed, fellow.

 

DADDY

Let’s discuss the plan once more. I will use this baybee to distract the Committee-

Ext: The parking lot outside the Intensifying Heart Club.

SALINA and PASTOR JING are having a smoke break by the back entrance.

PASTOR JING

So I hope everything is in good order now that you and ANGÉL have moved into your new luxury apartment kindly paid for by FRANK?

 

SALINA

Well you know, PASTOR, things are different now we been moved in together. You think I have to end my career as sport journalist?

INT: The Intensifying Heart Club & Leisure Centre, in the bar

Seated at the bar are MONICA and her ex-employer, the aged MADAME MORGANNA, matriarch of the hair salon and arch-rival to DADDY and the Club.

Editor’s note: You don’t have to keep reminding us, Chad, everyone reading the stage directions already knows who she is. If you wanna remind people of the characters, put it in the ”previously” segment. It’s there for a reason, man. Also, if they are arch-rivals, why is she hanging out at his establishment?

 

MONICA

So I suppose you’ve heard the latest gossip about the ongoing conflict between DADDY and THE MAYOR? Continue reading

INT: The Intensifying Hearts Club & Leisure Centre, in the women’s bathroom

MARCIA is crying hysterically into the sink. SALINA and MONICA are consoling her.

MARCIA

Why oh why does this keep happening to me? Don’t I deserve love and all those special things? Haven’t I always worked hard here at DADDY’s club? Why oh why did PJALTUR, the love of my life, leave me and shack up with the most famous classically trained dancer in the city? Continue reading
