EXCERPT:

P.–Never mind. I killed one last night, I am glad to say.

T.–You killed a hen?

P.–Certainly.

T.–Well, I do call that hard on me! My master beat me as hard as he could because of that hen.

P.–Well! Were you beaten for that wretched, tough old hen? That is funny!

T.–Yes, that is a good joke, madam, I dare say! But we shall see.

P.–Don’t be angry about such a trifle.

T.–I will be revenged still more. I have already broken a Venetian looking-glass, to show my indignation.

P.–Was it you who broke the looking-glass?

T.–Certainly it was.

P.–Then we are quits. My mistress insisted that I had broken it, and would not give me my saucer of cream.

T.–Oh, that really is funny! We are quits, then. Shall we be friends again?

P.–Certainly, if you like.

T.–And, as a proof of our friendship, next time you come to kill the hens, I won’t bark.



NOTE FROM NMI: Lady Bell plays are very short sketches written for very young children, suitable for nursery puppet plays, rather than actual theatres.
