(In the corridor, outside the big room. The woman is
talking to Mary. Mary has got the woman's bag.)
Mary I'm very sorry. George is silly sometimes.
We can move you to the big room and the young man can have
the other room. Please don't leave now!
(In the big room Mary and Toni Madoc are looking out of the
window. George runs into the room.)
George Miss Madoc! Here you are! Please stay!
You can have the room for nothing - free!
(He takes her arm.)
Toni Madoc No, I'm sorry. Goodbye, Mr Harris.
(She is standing under the new lamp. Suddenly the lamp begins
Mary George ... Stop! Listen!
(George pushes the woman. She falls over. George falls on
top of her. The lamp falls on George's head. He lies there
and doesn't move.)
Mary Miss Madoc. Are you all right?
Toni Madoc I'm fine. (She gets up.)
But how is Mr Harris?
Mary George? George! Speak to me, George!
Toni Madoc Oh, Mr Harris! Are you all right?
(They look at George. He doesn't speak or move.)
Mary That horrible light isn't safe. Oh George,
can you hear me? Please say something, George.
Toni Madoc Now I understand! That lamp nearly
... and Mr Harris ... oh, what a nice man! Because of Mr Harris
I'm safe! Thank you, Mr Harris ... thank you, George.
Toni Madoc What a nice man! Thank you, Mrs
Mary Don't thank me - thank silly old George.
Would you like a glass of champagne now, Miss Madoc?
(They go out. George is lying on the floor. He slowly
opens one eye.)
George He's very ... No, she's very, very
famous. She's a star ...
