The scene is in semi-
Stranger Ah, the Circus! The smell of the greasepaint, and all that. “The Jongleur’s Travelling Circus”, to be precise… Not exactly your “Barnum and Bailey’s”, or “Billy Smart’s”, but not bad for a small-
Lilith enters quietly.
Lilith Don’t rub it in…
He is caught off-
Stranger What is it this time…?
Lilith “Lilith”… Don’t be so formal though. Call me… “Lil”.
Stranger I wondered when you’d turn up.
Lilith No show without Punch, as they say. Why do they say that…?
Stranger I suppose your “boss” has sent you to keep things messed up? Always has to interfere, eh?
Lilith Hey, you know the rules. Check your Contract, mate. Wherever there’s Good, you gotta have… me. Or someone just like me. The guy’s totally miserable, so leave him alone. So, his life and career has gone down the drain? Hey, who cares?
Stranger I like a challenge… I believe in the power of the human heart and spirit. So, take that look off your face and do your worst.
Lilith Hey… Bring it on. Whatever plans you’ve got, petal, you’re no match for me…
She laughs and exits. The Stranger sits amongst the Audience?
Stranger Well then… I’ll need your help, kind strangers… I won’t tell you when though… As a friend of mine once said, “Don’t forget to entertain strangers, for you might have been entertaining angels unawares”. Get my drift, eh? Its Showtime…!
He winks and exits as the Lights come up.
Mike Gabriel enters dressed as the “Ring Master”, laughing and smiling, but doesn’t really mean it.
Mike From each and every one of us at “The Jongleur’s Travelling Circus”, and from me your Ring Master, Mike Gabriel, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Please show your final appreciation for all of our Artistes!
All the Artistes and Clowns enter, parading and bowing.
They exit, leaving Mike alone. The lights fade, with just a light on him. His smile fades and he turns towards his office. The Stranger is already there, in the shadows.
