Backstage – Peeking from behind smeared make-up

Hush – The chatter recedes into silence

Anticipation – The stained curtain rises, along with her uncontrollable shame

Spotlight – On a blinded puppet with broken strings

Frozen – Her face drawn to mourn her performance

Action – A ragdoll tug of war, forced to dance by a stranger’s rough hands

Applause – Loud and unforgiving

Bow – Silence screaming in her ears as you exit

Alone – She is left with a single rose

Pain – It pricks her pretty finger

Encore – Ladies and gentlemen…

Welcome to the show.
