The QueenMature

(The Queen enters, Rabbit exits.)

 

 

Queen: Rise Alice. (she doesn’t) I said rise!

 

Alice: Yes majesty.

 

Queen: Did you miss me?

 

Alice: No.

 

Queen: Try again.

 

Alice: Yes. I did.

 

Queen: Splendid.

 

Alice: What do you want? I’m tired.

 

Queen: To see you deary.

 

Alice: I don’t believe that one bit.

 

Queen: I think I should be allowed to see you whenever I choose Alice.

 

Alice: And why is that.

 

Queen: Because you killed me silly.

 

Alice: I didn’t, didn’t kill you, I did, I didn’t kill you.

 

Queen: A gruesome affair.

 

Alice: Leave me be.

 

Queen: I hope you scrubbed those carpets they were quite valuable.

 

Alice: Go.

 

Queen: I can’t.

 

Alice: Can’t, always here, can’t go, can’t go, can’t go.

 

 

Queen: It’s your fault after all. Funny really. The great Alice seems to be more filled with darkness than even me.

 

Alice: I would do it again.

 

Queen: What? Say it.

 

Alice: Smash your head into the ground. Watch your skull fragments fly past my face. Watch the breath leak out of your lungs.

 

Queen: And then?

 

Alice: Nothing.

 

Queen: And then?

 

Alice: I don’t need to tell you.

 

Queen: Oh but I think you do.

 

Alice: Get out.

 

Queen: Silly Alice. Thinking you have any power here.

 

Alice: (screams) GET OUT!

 

Queen: Enough.

 

Alice: You’re afraid now aren’t you. You remember this face.

 

Queen: I said enough.

 

Alice: This was the last thing you saw, wasn’t it Lorina?

 

Queen: I will see you later.

 

Alice: That’s it. Squirm away. Like a little maggot creeping back into the dirt.

 

Queen: I do not squirm. A queen simply knows when to retreat. We will resume this later Alice. Good day.

 

(Lights down.)
