Hannah Writes Her First Play

There is a collapsible puppet theater at Hannah's after-school care. Today she started her first play to be staged there at a future date. Here's our conversation about the play as we walked home from school in the snow:

H: It starts with this devil--
N: *gasp* A devil!?
H: No, no! He's a good devil.
N: Ok. Go on.
H: So the devil tells everyone that the play is set during World War Two. There are two main characters, a man and a woman. The woman is secretly the Queen of England. Her name is Maria Theodora. The man is very poor. His name is Marcus Melvin. I made up those names. That's as much as I have so far.

Bravo! We have a budding writer on our hands!
