Comedy Play Script: 'Roy Brown: Bringing Back The Bluestones' by Derek Webb

Synopsis

If Scotland can get back the Stone of Scone, Greece wants the Elgin marbles back and India wants its Koh-i-noor  diamond, why shouldn’t Wales have the Stonehenge bluestones back? 

The idea begins to take shape in Roy’s mind of starting a campaign to have the bluestones returned to their rightful place in Wales. Roy’s friend Jane knows many members of a local eco-community who are about to be evicted.  Roy turns up to help and during an interview with a local newspaper makes his case for bringing back the bluestones from Wiltshire resulting in more support for his ‘cause’. In particular, the owner of a local theme park offers to sponsor the removal of Stonehenge back to Pembrokeshire. He can see distinct possibilities of the attraction, especially when coupled to a new white-knuckle ride…

Everything appears to be going well until Roy starts receiving lots of mail, some of which appears to be from irate Druids who remind him in no uncertain terms of Stonehenge’s association with sacrifices, and how he could be instrumental in revitalising the ritual. Rattled, Roy quickly backtracks and suggests that it would be a far better idea to create a replica Stonehenge instead, but then an American turns up who’s interested in exporting the stones across the Atlantic. It could make his name (and fortune) probably...

This play is the one act version of the full length comedy 'Roy Brown: Reclaiming Stonehenge'
