Maria [Season 1]

When at a rock concert on a Friday night, Maria finds herself thrown into the heavy metal music world. Surrounded by girls, drugs and rock shows, Maria soon becomes part of a runaway train hell bent for the top, but held back by the singers tortured psyche and a disaster that hit far too close to home...


59. Scene 1


Reece is on a date. We see him walking arm in arm with a girl, heading back to his apartment. They unlock the door and go in. Reece seems to be expecting sex, but the woman just sits on his bed. Reece is visibly pleased.


Reece: Thank god you’re not trying to fuck me!


Woman: Why? You don’t like me? (she pouts jokily)


Reece: Naw, it’s not that. It’s just, being a rockstar and all, it always seems to be about sex. No one wants to stay up all night talking to you, they wanna stay up all night riding you. It’s nothing special anymore.


Woman: So how many girls you had before me, eh?


Reece: (sitting next to her) Chloe, I’d rather not answer that.


Chloe: (laughs) What’s it like then, being in a band?


Reece: Fucking exhausting! There’s always something to do. The whole thing saps the fun outta music. We’re only really happy on the stage, even recording’s becoming a drag.


Chloe: Just be thankful you’re not working with Lange!


Reece: Ha, true. Though he’s good at what he does. You want a drink?


Chloe: Yeah, coffee please. I’ll start combatting the hangover now.


Reece stands and leaves the room. The scene fades to the next day.


Nikki: (walking into Kenny’s parent’s living room) got a letter this morning from the academy in town asking us to open at a Def Leppard tribute concert (drops letter on the table) you up for it?


Kenny: Isn’t it a bit beneath us? We’re a proper band opening up for a tribute band. And you’ll just moan as they butcher the songs.


Nikki: (sitting) What can I say? I’m a true Leppardette.


Dan: Why have they asked us anyway?


Nikki: Probably because I wear Def Leppard T-Shirts in all our videos. And on stage.


Kenny: That’ll do it. Where’s Reece?


Dan: On a date. He’ll be late in. Apparently they stayed up all night.


Nikki: Cheeky!


The phone rings. No one moves.


Nikki: It’s your house, Kenny.


Kenny: For god’s sake! (he picks up the phone) Kenny Kruz speaking…oh hi Robert. What? How do you know about the letter for the tribute concert? You go through our mail, nice…I told him it was beneath us but…


Nikki: (snatching the phone) It’s a willingness and a want to entertain. Plus, I like Def Leppard. Just trust us, OK. The public will be elated to have an up and coming band at a tribute concert. Now, if you don’t mind, Mr. Manager sir, I have a girlfriend to go see.


Robert: (from down the phone) You guys are genuinely unmanageable!


Nikki: (hanging up) You guys sort the stuff into the van. I have to take Maria to college!


Dan: (spitting out his coffee) Nikki’s taking his girlfriend to school!


Nikki: Fuck you!
