An excerpt …
(the loyalty test)
ALL CREW: A test?
LeFARGE: Yes! Yes! A test! A test! To see which of you loves me best!
ALL CREW: (moans)
LeFARGE: What’s that?
ALL CREW: (smiling with a sound of great pleasure) Ahhhh!
LeFARGE: That’s better. And today’s category is … drum roll, Dogsbody! (Dogsbody does a drum roll on the head of the others) … Poetry!
ALL CREW: Poetry?
(not just a literary society)
LeFARGE: Lose. A contest to see which is truly the bravest of my motley crew! Scurvy! You’re first! Climb the main mast and jump down from the top!
SCURVY: But Captain!!!
LeFARGE: Did I hear “please?”
SCURVY: But Captain, please! I’ll die!
LeFARGE: Scurvy, in this cruel world we win some and we lose some. Who knows, this may be your day! (angrily) Now climb before I toss you to the sharks!
SCURVY: (climbs onto a chair and mimes climbing up the mast) I hate heights!
BOGGLES: (as the crew members watch LeFarge meet his end) I say, Dogsbody. Good show.
PENDRAGON: Good show indeed. Serves him right.
SCURVY: Bit of bad step, eh? Can he swim?
BOGGLES: Yes, but … ooooo … he didn’t outswim that shark. Anybody for lunch?
SCURVY: He was.
PENDRAGON: How ‘bout a bit swordfish and rum?
BOGGLES: Smashing idea, old chap! (shouting to the Captain) Captain LeFarge! Yo Ho… (sees something awful) …Yuck.
