An excerpt …
APRIL: (yawning as if waking up) Oh, geesh. Another day. School. Homework. Teachers. Plagues and diseases. (looking around) I hate school. I hate morning. What was I gonna wear today? (picks something up) Whoa! They’d never allow this little number in homeroom. (shrugs) Aw, who cares. (begins to dress)
CONNIE: (turning from US and appearing over April’s tight shoulder) Better not.
APRIL: (pause, then) Excuse me?
CONNIE: Better not, It’s pretty short.
APRIL: (still not turning to Connie) Uh ... I hate to be ... you know ... nosy, but who in the heck are you and what are you doing in my bedroom?
CONNIE: I’m Connie. I’m your conscience.
(The conscience has a tough job.)
APRIL: Tammy Dillard blabs all my secrets around school!
CONNIE: So stop telling her!
APRIL: But she’s my best friend! (Connie sighs) Look ... are you like ... going to stay with me all day?
CONNIE: Until we can straighten you out.
APRIL: (not thrilled) Oh, Joy. (crosses stage) I think I’ll go back to bed.
CONNIE: (stopping her) No way.
APRIL: Why not?
CONNIE: Because your conscience is telling you not to.
(Maybe April will catch on.)
CONNIE: Are you really that dumb? If the sky falls, you’re the one in charge of how much it will upset your life
APRIL: (looking up, not getting it) Is the sky falling?
CONNIE: (to herself, exasperated) You dumb bunny!
CONNIE: You’re the one who decides how you feel! You’re the one who makes yourself miserable when you treat other people badly. Is this sinking in at all?
APRIL: Uh ...
CONNIE: I can’t believe this. I had the choice of you or the Pope, but no, I wanted a challenge! Look. You get what you give. Get it?
APRIL: You really picked me over the Pope?
