This is a play that I wrote for an English assessment in school. It is about a girl who is in an abusive relationship. Feedback/likes greatly appreciated


5. Scene 5

(Lights up on JAMES’ bedroom, which is considerably messier than CHARLIE’S. The furniture is in the same place, but a blue bedspread and desk rather than pink. JAMES is sat on the edge of the bed, SR, when CHARLIE walks in, SL)

CHARLIE (As JAMES stands and walks over to her): I'm sorry I'm late, it was just-

JAMES (Taking her face in his hands): It’s fine. Don't worry about it. (He leans in to kiss, before abruptly pulling back.)

CHARLIE: What? What is it?

JAMES (Quietly): Your top. (Stepping back, slightly louder) I thought I told you not to wear tops this low cut.

(CHARLIE looks to the ground, ashamed.)

CHARLIE: I’m sorry. Really, I am.

JAMES: It’s all right. But I want you to throw that top out when you get home. Okay? (He pauses, and tucks a strand of hair behind her ear.) I know what’s best for us. I’m doing this because I love you.

(They kiss. Defibrillator sounds. CHARLIE pulls away, and the sounds stops instantly. Slowly, she goes back in. Lights down.)
