Extracts from this document...


English Coursework A Family Play Mary: Change the channel, Robert! Robert: If you don't like what I'm watching then go and watch the other TV. Mary: No! Why don't you just put it on something that we both like? Mum and Dad are watching the other TV anyway. Robert: Because I like this. Mary: Well you need to go to bed soon. Robert: Well when I do then you can watch what you like. Mary: Why do you always need to be so selfish? I hate having a younger brother like you. (Short pause of silence) Shelly: (shouting) Robert it's time for bed now. Robert: Alright I'm going, I'm going. (Robert stands up) Mary: Can I have the remote control, Robert? Robert: If you say please. Mary: Don't be such an idiot and just give it to me! (Robert leaves the remote control where he's sitting smiles sweetly at Mary and leaves the room) ...read more.


(Shelly walks over to Robert to try and comfort him but Robert shrugs her off) Shelly: I know, why don't we all go a shop now and we can buy you a present? Robert: Because its Sunday and all the shops are closed. Shelly: So it is, I forgot what day it was. Robert: (angrily) I noticed! Colin: We're really sorry Rob, you know how busy we've both been. (Mary enters, having heard the noise) Mary: What are you shouting about?! Robert: Don't tell me you forgot too! Mary: Forgot what? Robert: It's my birthday! Mary: Is it? I thought it was the 8th today? Not the 9th. Robert: Well it's the 9th, and you all forgot! Mary: Oh, sorry Rob, I didn't realise. Robert: Don't expect me to remember any of your birthdays! (small awkward silence) Colin: I know we'll take you out to the pub for a Sunday lunch, and I'll buy your present tomorrow. ...read more.


Oh, we haven't got it yet. Colin: Were getting it tomorrow though. Craig: Oh alright then, I hope he likes the present I got him! Shelly: I'm sure that he will. (Mary and Robert come back downstairs) Robert: (very excitedly) Hi uncle Craig! (gives him a hug) what are you doing here? Craig: For your birthday of course! Did you forget? (laughs) Robert: (sarcastically) I didn't, but I know somebody who did. Craig: What do you mean? Robert: Didn't they tell you? They forgot that it was my birthday today! Craig: (looks at Colin in surprise) Really? That's terrible! Colin: We lost track of what day it was. Craig: I'm sure he won't mind if you get a present tomorrow then. Will you Robert? Robert: No, I suppose not. Craig: Now, do you want to see what I got you? (Robert suddenly seems more excited again) Robert: oooh yes please! (Craig hands Robert a long wrapped up present, which Robert begins to unwrap) Robert: Wow! A didgeridoo! Thanks Craig, that's amazing! Craig: Glad that you like it Rob. (The family all watch in amusement as Robert attempts to play the didgeridoo) ...read more.
