|Characters in order of appearance
Charlie -main Character
(Set in a school.)
(Narrator enters Stage right and stands in the centre of the stage/floor)
We all fear things but sometimes fear becomes an
Obsession. This is what happens to Charlie smith.......
(The narrator notices Charlie at the back of the room, She raises her hand as if prompting them to continue. The narrator hesitates)
Charlie was once a bubbly 15yr old straight A student at St
Margaret’s high school. She was extremely popular with her
Teachers & peers however something changed.
(We hear another loud piercing scream and Charlie enters through the audience as the narrator runs off Stage left. Charlie is carrying a school bag and in that bag is an envelope addressed to her from her head of year. Charlie opens the letter carefully and starts to read it silently. The narrator reads the letter through a microphone if you have one if not the voice will do just as well)
Dear Charlotte, we regret to inform you that due to certain circumstances it would be unwise for you to return to st Margaret’s in September. Good luck for the future .
JAYNE PORTER head of yr 11

(Charlie freezes. A group of people enter and do a frozen image showing Charlie being a leader. When everyone is in the image Charlie starts to speak again. At this point Charlie spots cookie she is wearing her hair in a high ponytail)
Everything fell apart after I met Cookie. I should have known
She was trouble as the year mentor told me but I was naïve
To say the least.

(Charlie and Cookie part from the group and cookies gang step closer. Everyone is frozen except Cookies gang who are clapping and laughing while Charlie and Cookie circle each other. They freeze staring at each other and the gang tell the crowd the show’s over and Break it up 2 or 3 leave here. Julie, one of Cookies gang notices Ms Porter.

(Cookie storms off the stage, quickly followed by Charlie and Ms Porter as a piercing scream resounds around the stage)
(We hear music played in the 1980’s and people laughing. Cookie enters wearing a smart jacket and her hair loose against her face. She starts to pace the stage and breathing heavily. She then looks at the watch and begins to mutter)
