Sample text: 

(Loud rumbling sound; Farmer, Rat and Ox run for cover; whole casts sways backwards and forwards)

(Enter Chang Heng clutching seismograph, Cai Lun, Peasant, Monkey and Sheep, bleating with fear)

Sheep:           Don't panic! Don't panic! Nothing to worry about! Just a wee ....(Shrieking) EARTHQUAKE!

(Whole cast cover their heads with their hands)

Chang Heng: It's all right, everybody. Now I have invented the seismograph here, we know when an earthquake's coming!

Sheep:           Yes, and it's here! Right now, in case you hadn't noticed! Couldn't you have invented something a bit more useful - like how to stop it?!

(Rumbling subsides, everybody sighs with relief)

Sheep:           Wow! You did it! That was impressive!

Chang Heng: (Coughing) Er, well, of course. Us inventors are capable of anything!

Monkey:       (Sarcastically) Yeah, right! Time for a quick reality check. Remind me, what were the four Great Inventions of Ancient China?

Sheep:           That would be the compass, gunpowder, printing

Cai Lun:         And paper making! I can take credit for that invention!

Sheep:           What did you use?

Cai Lun:         Oh just mulberry bark and bamboo fibers mixed together in water. Course I had no idea what my little recipe would go on to yield

Peasant:        What, like toilet paper, tea bags and money? (Holding up each in turn)

Cai Lun:         My goodness! So many different uses. And there was me thinking it would just be used to write on!

(Enter Confucius)
