Extracts from this document...


Script work - Who should be duke of Milan? Judge: Antonio, you are charged with illegally usurping the dukedom of Milan. Do you plead guilty, or not guilty? Antonio: Not guilty. Judge: Prosecution, you may call your first to give evidence: Miranda. P Lawyer: Miss Miranda, how long have you known about your father's unfortunate past? Miranda: Oh, well I only found out yesterday. I have always had memories of being on a boat, and a huge storm arising, but I thought I must have been dreaming, or at least making it up. P Lawyer: And do you think that Mr Antonio was right to banish your father? Miranda: No I certainly do not! ...read more.


Prospero: Well, Antonio had responsibilities to these areas. I would come up with a solution, and then Antonio would, consequently, address the situation. P Lawyer: Thank you Mr Prospero, No further questions Your Honour. Judge: Defence, you may call your first to give evidence: Caliban. A Lawyer: So, Mr Caliban, do you think that Mr Prospero should regain his position as duke of Milan? Caliban: Under the circumstances, no. That man stole my island.
