Final Messiah.

Extracts from this document...


Final Messiah (The scene opens with a narrow spotlight (may be coloured) on FM. Music is playing in the background (The Doors playing "The End" or "Riders on the storm". The scene is synced with the music. FM makes slow dance like movements with his dialogue whiich is played ding the instrumental interludes of the song. FM is dressed in an unusual manner bare chested, wearing army-style camouflage pants, maybe a mask. His voice is heavy and drawling-somewhat like Jim Morrison. The whole stage is dark except for the spotlight. The entire sequence has a dreamy moody feel.) FM: I am.... The one. I am the saviour. The liberator. It was said that in mankind's hour of darkness He shall arise and lead you forth to the light. I have arrived. The Prince of the Light. Reach out. Hold my hand. I shall guide you to the new dawn. I shall cleanse this mortal sphere of its evils. The dark orders of the old world shall wither away and I will build the New Dawn. Join me...and you shall be saved. Stand in my path and face my vengeance. ...read more.


Idiot. Made me forget about the news. (he turns on the radio. A voice is reading the news. As he listens he picks up the kit bag and sits down. He opens it and carefully starts bringing out sticks of dynamite, bombs and things in plastic baggies. He piles them on the table one by one checking everything carefully. Lastly he takes out a revolver and starts checking it and then starts loading it with bullets from one of the baggies. As he is doing this the news item he has been waitng for comes up) N: Among other news today there was a b**b scare at The Esplanade Bus Terminus. A suspicious looking briefcase was found to contain a small amount of explosives. Fortunately the police diffused the b**b within minutes and nobody was hurt.... FM : Diffused? Diffused? You nitwits it wasn't supposed to go off in the first place. N: Police were baffled for some time as to who could have planted the b**b. A terrorist attack was suspected but a audio tape found in the briefcase helped allay their fears to a great extent. ...read more.


I have no idea. FM: Final Messiah. That's what everybody called me. You guys said that I was the chosen one and everything. F: (bursts out laughing) Yeah....Now I remember. That was a great joke. FM: (surprised) Joke? F: Yeah. It started after you Meghna had that lab accident in class 11. Her clothes caught fire. You put it out. Then you would walk around school like a super stud. That's when someone said "He thinks he is the Final Messiah" From then on everyone called you that. FM: (shocked) can't be. Every one was serious. They always said that I was the saviour and things like that. F: (giggling) The whole school knew about it. In front of you everyone acted like they were completely in your awe and then they came to the canteen and we all had a hearty laugh as they told us your response. Oh it was great fun! FM: (slowly) You sure it was a joke? I didn't think so. F: It was. I hope you aren't still offended about it or anything. It was all very innocent. (looks at his watch) Uh...I've got a meeting so I'll have to run. It was good to catch up on old times but can we do more of this later? I must run. ...read more.
