Pie R Squared Act 2 Scene 2


Act 2 Scene 2: Welsh Cheddar Dragon

John Q: hey, John Q here again. Having unsuccessfully tried a Cheddar Gorge pie shop or two, Joe decides to take a tour of the famous caves therein.
Being a bit distracted, our hero becomes separated from the group. He takes a wrong turn and, not on the schedule, comes face to face with a bona-fide, fire-breathing, big-as-an-office-block, dragon..

Gwyneth (Welsh Dragon): (BREATHING)

Joe: hello?

Gwyneth: oh..hullo. What's occurrin'?

Joe: umm, sorry I'm a little lost?

Gwyneth: that's alright butt, come by yer.
