EXCERPT:

KARL. ‘You have an eye for a pretty girl still, sir!’

COLONEL. ‘Yes, I have; yes, I have!’

BARBARA. ‘I do believe I see it all. Granny has been talking to you about Billy boy and me, and you haven’t been able to wait; you have hurried on the wedding!’

BILLY. ‘Bravo, Barbara, you’ve got it.’

COLONEL, doubtfully, ‘That may be it. Because I am sure you were to be there, Barbara.’

BARBARA. ‘Our wedding, Billy!’

KARL. ‘It doesn’t explain those other people, though.’

The Colonel moves about in agitation.

BARBARA. ‘What is it, dear?’

COLONEL. ‘I can’t quite remember, but I think that is why she didn’t take me. It is your wedding, Barbara, but I don’t think Billy boy is to be there, my love.’

BARBARA. ‘Not at my wedding!’

BILLY. ‘Grandfather!’

COLONEL. ‘There’s something sad about it.’



NOTE FROM NMI: Barrie sometimes wrote his plays in prose, rather than in script format; but they are plays nonetheless.
