An excerpt …
(she is lovely)
PRINCESS LOVELY: (“flowing” into the area”) Oh what a lovely morning!
MOLLY: she said ...
PRINCESS LOVELY: The sky is lovely! The trees are lovely! And most lovely of all … is me.
MOLLY: She really was a babe. She called for her Daddy, the King.
PRINCESS LOVELY: Oh, Daddy the King!
MOLLY: (as Daddy the King enters) Daddy the King was not lovely, but he was okay.
KING: Yes, my lovely young daughter?
PRINCESS LOVELY: Daddy, I am so totally bored. I mean, after all, you have given me everything ... a lovely castle, lovely gowns, and lovely facial treatments. But I lack adventure! I want a sense of purpose!
KING: You mean a job?
PRINCESS LOVELY: Bite your lovely tongue, Daddy! Let us not get carried away! No, I want some excitement in my life!
(the King tries to find excitement for her)
PRINCESS LOVELY: Bring me another!
MOLLY: And so he did …
KING: Presenting … A Magician!
MOLLY: And like magic, a magician appeared!
MAGICIAN: Princess Lovely! I will enchant you with the most amazing prestidigitation you have ever witnessed!
PRINCESS LOVELY: Fine. Now get to the magic.
MAGICIAN: Behold! A rabbit!
MOLLY: Said the magician as he pulled a rabbit from his left ear.
PRINCESS LOVELY: Bet that hurt.
MOLLY: Said the magician, and the all the trees in the kingdom started to dance with small twinkling lights!
PRINCESS LOVELY: Now that is really cool.
(she meets a peasant boy and they go into the forest)
PRINCESS LOVELY: Whoa! We lost the sun! Where’d it go?
MOLLY: They were so tired that they fell fast asleep on the forest floor. (the two collapse onto the floor) And what should appear but a beautiful fairy!
BEAUTIFUL FAIRY: Yo! Princess!
PRINCESS LOVELY: Who’s that?
BEAUTIFUL FAIRY: I’m a beautiful fairy, and I’ve come to give you a message.
PRINCESS LOVELY: (suddenly sitting up) Oh my gosh! My hair appointment! I missed it!
