Scene 40 (The Last Scene! Sob!)

PARK – NEAR DUCK POND 

Where Ellie and Kate met Author for the first time. 

[ELLIE and YOUNG GUY (Shed) enter holding hands. KATE follows after them, a laptop case in her hand.] 

ELLIE

Hi, Kate! Have you made that into a PDF yet?

KATE

Yup, all done. Would’ve been easier if Author could have typed it into a computer instead of a typewriter, but I suppose these creative types must have their odd habits…

YOUNG GUY

You finished it then? That script?

KATE

Just about. With the three of us it wasn’t too hard to type it all up, especially since I took a course in typewriting. The hardest part was scanning it all in—but never mind. It’s done now.

ELLIE

You’ve validated? Where’s Author? We should celebrate!

KATE

She’s on her way. She wanted to validate so I’ve left it for her. But if she keeps to her promise she should be here any minute now.

ELLIE

Great! Okay…

[AUTHOR enters, holding a large basket] 

AUTHOR

You’ve done it? Oh, Kate, you’re a genius! Now, can we validate?

KATE

Yes we can!

AUTHOR

Great!

[they open the laptop and start typing, with much clicking of the mouse]

KATE

Go on then: press the button.

AUTHOR

All right! [presses button]

ELLIE

Well?

[AUTHOR reads aloud from screen] 

AUTHOR

Congratulations, writer, you have completed Script Frenzy 2010 … blah, blah, blah … winner goodies! Certificate!

ELLIE

Well done! I knew you could do it!

AUTHOR

You all helped so much. And as for the actual plot… I couldn’t have done it without you.

YOUNG GUY

We should have a party.

AUTHOR

Definitely! I’ve got food…music…drinks…

KATE

Then what are we waiting for?

[BLACKOUT]
