Let's Meet Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth I
This is the first in a series of 'Two Reader' Scripts that I am writing.
These scripts can either be read by one child (plus adult i.e. child reading one character and adult taking on the role of the other); or by two children (reading to an adult).
Duration: Approximately 5 - 10 minutes - this includes reading and quiz afterwards.
Queen Victoria: Ah a man who could write! Like Charles Dickens! He told us all about the poor.
Queen Elizabeth: Oh, them!
Queen Victoria: Yes, them! Those poor children! It was time things changed.
Queen Elizabeth: In what way?
Queen Victoria: Free schools and free meals?
Queen Elizabeth: Wow! That was a big step forward!
Queen Victoria: And so many inventions – all making our lives better. We saw the first cars, first railways, first
Queen Elizabeth: (Interrupting) Cars? Railways?
Queen Victoria: Oh, I’m forgetting! You just had horses! You see, we had the Industrial Revolution
Queen Elizabeth: Industrial Revolution?
Queen Victoria: Oh dear. I will sit down with you some other time and tell you all about it. Like, how we could talk to each other – sitting in different parts of the country!
Queen Elizabeth: What?
Queen Victoria: Yes, that was the telephone! Then, we could see in the dark … without candles or fire.
Queen Elizabeth: No!
Queen Victoria: Yes, that was electricity.
Queen Elizabeth: Electricity?
Queen Victoria: We could make pictures of people and places … without a paint brush.
Queen Elizabeth: Impossible!
Queen Victoria: No. That was called, photography!
