Creative writing - Becca.

Extracts from this document...


Becca: We have a place, all of us, in a long story; a story we continue, but whose end we will not see. It is the story of a new world that became a friend and liberator of the old. The story of a slave-holding society that became a servant of freedom. The story of a power that went into the world to protect but not possess, to defend but not to conquer.

They are walking under a street lamp lit road and it is night. Jacob: We've just received a call about a man with a knife threatening some kids. We're almost there now. Becca: How often do you get calls like this? Amanda: We get quite a few cases like this. Most of the time it's angry neighbours complaining about noise. Jacob: It should be just down this street. Amanda: Yeh, I can hear something. Jacob: Alrite, he's running, put your weapon down! Amanda: Put your weapon down and lie on the floor. Jacob: He's thrown it, the buggers thrown it. Amanda: Lie down! The projector is then turned off. Will lies down on stage and the action is smoothly transferred from screen to stage. Amanda, Jacob and Becca appear from behind the white sheet. In this section, Becca has a video camera in hand but what is being projected up on screen is not what is going on on-stage. The projector is showing Amanda and Jacob helping the man to his feet and asking him text book questions. ...read more.


Amanda: But I said no means yes, he just repeated it, said we've been lying. Will: Now why do you think that son, we're officers of the law, we don't lie. You lie. You lie all the time. Amanda: Where's the knife? Will: I DON'T KNOW! Amanda: Roll him over. Jacob rolls Will over so he is looking up. Becca: Do you mind if I ask you a few questions while your dealing with the suspect officers? Jacob: Not at all. Amanda: Go ahead. Amanda and Jacob are standing behind Will. Becca is asking questions standding from behind his feet. Becca: Have you ever felt personal contempt for a suspect? Amanda: Not at all. She kicks Will hard in the gut. Becca: Have you ever used methods that the long arm of the law does not allow? Jacob: I do my up most. I'll go above and beyond to help bring a criminal to justice. Jacob kicks Will is the ribs. Becca: Have you ever experienced 'red mist'? Amanda: No. Jacob: Not that I know of. Becca: One last question, where's the knife Will? Will: It wasn't a knife, it was piece of glass, I didn't have a knife. Amanda and Jacob lay into Will kicking and punching. Becca: Where's the knife Will? ...read more.
