An excerpt …

Cast: Sigmund, Miss Muffet, Jack Horner, Mary, Dumpty

The five sit in a semi-circle facing the audience.

SIGMUND: Are we all here? (no one responds … not a willing group) Very well. I guess we can begin.

MISS MUFFET: Is this gonna take long?

SIGMUND: Miss Muffet, you signed up for this session. You’re free to leave at any time.

MISS MUFFET: Just asking. Lighten up, Doc.

SIGMUND: I’m glad you’re all here. I’ve found that this sort of group therapy can work wonders. Do we all agree? (no response from any of them) Okay. Can we begin by introducing ourselves? (nodding to Muffet) Would you like to begin?

MISS MUFFET: My name’s Muffet.

SIGMUND: Your first name?

MISS MUFFET: Muffet. Just Muffet. Miss Muffet.

SIGMUND: Very well … (nods to Jack) And you?

JACK HORNER: Jack. Jack Horner. Little Jack. My dad was Big Jack.

SIGMUND: Because …

JACK HORNER: Because he was bigger.

SIGMUND: Very well. (to Mary) And you?

MARY: Mary.

SIGMUND: That’s all?

MARY: Last name’s Littlelamb.

SIGMUND: And your middle name would be …?

MARY: Hadda.

SIGMUND: Mary Hadda Littlelamb.

MARY: (to Miss Muffet) Are you laughing?

MISS MUFFET: No. Uh … something in my throat.
