Rumpelstiltskin Sample Text:
Narrator: Good morning. And welcome to one of our favourite fairy tales
(Enter Rumpelstiltskin)
Rumpelstiltskin: Rumpelstiltskin! That’s me!
Narrator: A veritable fiend! Villain! Crook!
Rumpelstiltskin: (Interrupting) Er, wait a minute! Are we talking about the same fairy tale?
(Narrator consults his notes)
Narrator: Well, I think so. Weren’t you the horrible little
Rumpelstiltskin: (Interrupting) Could you be just a tiny bit less offensive? I mean, ‘horrible’, ‘little’. Aren’t there any rules on political correctness here?
Narrator: (Apologetically) Oh I’m sorry. You're right (Putting script to one side) I’ll try not to follow this quite so much
(Rumpelstiltskin walks over and takes a look at the script)
Rumpelstiltskin: (Snorting) Pah! As I thought! Those Brothers Grimm! The way they described their characters! They’d never get away with it today! ‘Little man’ indeed! How would they like to be vertically challenged?
Narrator: You know, I do sympathise with you. I think you have a right to feel the way you do!
Rumpelstiltskin: Well, thank you
Narrator: But that doesn’t completely excuse your behaviour.
Rumpelstiltskin: (Exploding) My behaviour? What about that of the king and the girl’s own father?
