ACT 1: Scene 2
Rosemary and Shaun are in the bedroom.
Rosemary: I know you are seeing that Carrie who works in your office. There is no point in denying it. *she flings a photograph at him* There!
Shaun casts a cursory glance at the picture
Shaun: So? We were engaged in a software discussion. And who took that picture? Have you been following me?
Rosemary: I've hired a private detective. I want to discuss our marriage in a full and proper way Shaun.
Shaun: Look love. You have a nice home & two nice kids. I give you plenty of money so stop whinging. If you don't like it you know where the door is.
Rosemary: *crying* Why are you being like this Shaun?
Shaun:*aside to audience* Methinks the daft trout is in need of some buttering. *To Rosemary* Look love, you know I really appreciate you. *Breaks wind* Now for some kip.
Suddenly the door flings open. It is Alistair
Alistair: Its awful, absolutely ghastly. How can I go on. *begins to sob hysterically*
Rosemary: Ally, what has happened?
Alistair: The Ensemble I booked for the Mozart recital on Saturday have pulled out. I may dash my brains out.
Shaun: Its time you got yourself a proper bloody job instead of doing voluntary work at that arts centre.
Rosemary: Don't shout at him Shaun. He's upset *moving over and cradling Alistair's head in her arms* my baby.
Shaun: Pass me the sick bucket
Suddenly there is a bang downstairs. Amy rushes in
Amy: Someone's like lobbed a brick through the window.
Shaun: Oh? I thought it was the toaster exploding. It just shows that you can't always recognise sounds. Anyroad, you deal with it . *turns over & goes to sleep*
