Sample Text:

Journalist:           Aha! And you are?

Florence:             Florence Nightingale – alias Lady of the Lamp!

(Journalist scribbles notes onto notepad, in between taking photos)

(Journalist looks up from notes, and then looks all around)

Journalist:           And the other celebs? You did say ‘women’ I seem to remember?

(Enter Mary Seacole)

Mary:                    That would be me, Mary Seacole. I nursed the soldiers of the Crimean War.

(Enter Edith Cavell)

Edith:    And I, Edith Cavell, helped the soldiers in the First World War.

(Journalist continues to scribble down every piece of information he’s given)

Journalist:           (Turning to Florence) OK. And what did you do?

Florence:             I nursed soldiers in the Crimean War.

Journalist:           (Glaring at Narrator) Now wait a minute! I thought you said we had some celebs here today! Since when did just nurses qualify as celebs?

Narrator:             (Impatiently) But they weren’t just nurses as you so charmingly put it!

Journalist:           So what were they, then? Hey! I need a bit more than this to make front page news!
