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.

12. Scene 12 Poison

Scene 12 Poison

Setup
The screen shows "5 days ago"
The two detectives are standing besides the dead body from scene 11.

Detective (Female): Do you believe me now?

Detective (Male): Im starting to see it

Detective (Female): This man was the head behind the poison smuggling in England a few years ago, the official head at least.

Detective (Male): Im not gonna guess whom you believe to be the unofficial head

Detective (Female): Isn't it obvious?

A short pause follows

Detective (Female): How did he die?

Detective (Male): Arsenic poisoning, probably from the tea on the table

Detective (Female): Tea, funny

Detective (Male): It does fit their image quite well

Detective (Female): Do you remember what poisons was being smuggled back in England?

Detective (Male): Arsenic

A short pause

Detective (Female): He was killed with the same thing he used to smuggle. The only question left is, why did he have to die?

Detective (Male): Maybe cause his operation was discovered

Detective (Female): No, it was never known who was behind the smuggling, no i think its more sinister than that.

another pause

Detective (Female): Do you remember the two criminals who robbed a jewelry store a few months ago?

Detective (Male): Yes?

Detective (Female): They robbed a few other high class stores around Manhattan and i have believed them to be funded by Wonderland for quite some time.

Detective (Male): You think its them who killed him?

Detective (Female): Oh no quite the opposite in fact. I see now that they weren't funded by wonderland but by the queen, as they call her. I think that this man were supposed to kill them back in England, but didn't, cause he was also one of the queens men. I think that wonderland discovered this betrayal and killed this man, you know, to avoid loose ends.

Detective (Male): Hmmmmmm, that would explain some things here and there

Detective (Female): So, what do you think? you think that could be the solution?

Detective (Male): Indeed, but we need more evidence before we can place any charges

Detective (Female): Yes, but now we know where to look

Detective (Male): We're done here, you guys can clean him up

The detectives walk off stage and 4 people in white coats go up and carry the body off stage in the same direction as the detectives. The lights fade out and we move on to scene 13
