Glory Hole - The Royal Wedding


Darling ones,

I have adapted a short screenplay, Glory Hole, (entered for the London Comedy Screenwriters' Festival I'll have you know), for the Royal Wedding. Honestly if I had the money and the time I would make it myself but perhaps it's a story I can adapt for other fell purposes...

FADE IN.

EXT. COVENT GARDEN - NIGHT

Street Party for the Royal Wedding. Tearful KATE (29) is buffeted by drunken REVELLERS. Her Wedding Dress crumpled and dirty. Veil torn. Make-up like the Joker's.

She spots the LADIES' LAVATORY.

INT. LADIES' LAVATORY - NIGHT

Kate tries all the cubicle doors. They're engaged. The last one has a sign: OUT OF ORDER.

Kate hops from foot to foot, desperate. She pushes open the door to the out of order cubicle.

INT. CUBICLE, LADIES' LAVATORY - NIGHT

Filthy. Graffiti on the walls. Kate looks at her engagement and wedding rings, yanks them off and chucks them in the loo. She wees on them and pulls the chain. She spots a GLORY HOLE. The lights go out.

Kate panics and tries to get out but the lock won't budge. Blinding white light shoots out of the Glory Hole and dazzles her. An arm shoots out of it, pats her cheek and dries her tears with a tissue.

Like lightning, other arms erupt from the walls, redo her make-up and hair, paint her nails, slash at her dress to make a chic frock, wrap a vintage belt round it, slip killer heels on her feet, fix a fascinator in her hair.

The hands spritz her with scent, help her up and out of the cubicle. They wave to her. The door slams shut and the lights go back on. Kate is dazed. She opens the cubicle door but it's back to normal.

INT. LADIES' LAVATORY - NIGHT

Kate looks in the mirror. Stunning. She smiles at herself.

EXT. COVENT GARDEN - NIGHT

Kate dances with the dressed-up, Wedding-Day Revellers.

THE END.

FADE OUT.
