Mittelstufe

von Peter Griffith

 

Eine kleine Schauspielergruppe will einen Spionagekrimi aufführen, aber die zwei Männer im Ensemble haben nicht damit gerechnet, dass sich die Hauptdarstellerin weigert, ihre entwürdigend sexistische Rolle zu spielen. Wie können die zwei Männer es schaffen, die Vorstellung zu Ende zu spielen?

 

The Girl with the Golden Wig ist eine Komödie, die geschlechtsspezifische Rollenstereotype in der Welt der Unterhaltung hinterfragt.

Dee: I'm quite happy to tell the story of Dick Bond and Silas Queeze. But if you want the story to be filled with ridiculous brainless women who fling themselves at Dick Bond all the time, then you will have to find someone else to play these parts.
Mel: Oh my god I give up. I can't work with this sort of attitude.
Ray: Wait a minute, Mel. Dee's just given me an idea. We must find someone else. Leave it to me. Right you lot, as you've seen, we've got a bit of a problem. One member of our cast is...indisposed. So we need to find someone else to take over the role. Someone who's a bit open-minded. Someone who doesn't mind a little bit of...er...well, you know what I mean. Is there anyone here who thinks she might...No-one?

Perry ist ein gebildeter junger Mann auf dem gefährlichen Weg über das Mittelmeer in das sichere Italien. Auf der dramatischen Flucht verliert er seine Familie und sein gesamtes Hab und Gut. Nur seinen Mut und seine Hoffnung verliert er nie.

Wird Shakespeares Held in dieser modernen Version sein Glück finden?

Antioch: So now you're coming with us.
Perry: But my family – my things – my clothes -
Antioch: I don't see any family. I don't see any things.
Perry: My things – they're with my friends...
Antioch: Oh, so you have friends. Who exactly are your friends?
Perry: They're... I don't know.
Antioch: You don't know who your friends are?
Perry: No. I've forgotten. I have no friends.
Antioch: No friends. How unfortunate.
Thaliard: How unfortunate.
Antioch: You are an illegal immigrant, with no right to be in this country.
Perry: I told you. I had papers. They were stolen. I've been to the embassy. I've applied for new papers. You can't take me away. You've got no right.
Antioch: You're the one with no rights.
(Perry reaches for his pocket)
Thaliard: Stand still!
Antioch: Keep your hands up! Now Thaliard, see what's in that pocket.
Perry: Keep off me.
Thaliard: It's money, boss.
Antioch: So it is. Money.
(Thaliard takes the money)

Silvia: I don't know what to think.
Piers: Look Silvia, Vincent's gone. Expelled from school. I'm afraid you probably won't see him again – your father will see to that.
Silvia: He'll find a way to see me!
Piers: You can rely on me. I'll look after you, and help you get over Vincent.
Silvia: I don't want to 'get over' Vincent! I want to see him again, as soon as possible!
Piers: I'm sure. But given the way Vincent is – and the way your dad is – I think that may never happen.
Silvia: Piers, I'm not quite sure what you're trying to tell me. But I don't think I want to hear it. Now as I said, I want to be on my own. Goodbye.
