Wonderland

A theater script Im writing on, the first ever.

Basically this group called wonderland is found dead, suicide all round.
So we start at the end and then we teleport 6 months back in time, and start working our way towards the conclusion, answering some questions on the way. And hopefully creating some too.

Scene 11 A cup of tea

Setup
The screen shows "6 days ago"
Alice is seated at a table with a man whom we haven't seen before. They are both drinking tea out of small cups.

Man: Im quite surprised. You're inviting me in for tea even though you know I'm probably working with the queen.

Alice: Ah well, its so sad drinking tea alone

Man: Indeed, but I'm suspecting you of having some sort of motive with this meeting

Alice: You've always been a smart man

Man: So what do i owe the honor?

Alice: Do you remember the time when you where our man in England?

Man: Indeed

Alice: Do you remember what you were doing there?

Man: Yes, i were supervising two smugglers. They were smuggling poison if i remember correctly

Alice: You are. Do you remember what your last job was?

Man: Yes, i had to feed them their own goods

Alice: And you succeeded?

Man: Yes

Alice: Thats fun

Man: Why?

Alice: Cause i got a call from one of them not very long ago, they were working with the queen

Man: Uhhhhhh, thats weird, someone must have found them and rescued them

Alice: Yeah, someone must have found them. You perhaps?

Man: No! I gave them the poison as i was supposed to

Alice: Im sure you did

Man suddenly stares at his cup with a terrified look

Man: What did you do?

Alice: I mixed an extra spice in your tea, nothing more

Man: What spice?

Alice: I got it all the way from England

Man: Whats it called?

There follows a short break, the man starts to look ill. Alice then leans forward towards the man

Alice: I think its called arsenic, but I'm not sure. Why don't you ask your smuggler friends, they probably still have a few crates lying around.

Another break follows. The man then falls down from his chair. When he's lying on the ground he starts having cramps. Alice gets up and starts walking off the stage, after a few steps she stops and looks back at the man on the floor.

Alice: Adios

She then walks off the stage. A few seconds pass, then the man lies still. The lights fade out and we move on to scene 12
