I am so sad!
The scenery to stage left shows several ducks on a pond. The central section shows a meadow with flowers and butterflies. On the he scenery to stage right one can see robins and squirrels in the branches of a tree. Three narrators introduce the scene.
Narrator 1: Once upon a time there was a little boy hedgehog. His name was Hector.
Narrator 2: One day he went for a walk in a meadow with flowers and butterflies.
Hector Hedgehog comes on stage, and music plays.
Narrator 3: And there was a little girl hedgehog. Her name was Holly.
Holly Hedgehog comes on stage. The narrators leave.
Holly Hedgehog: Good morning, Hector Hedgehog.
Hector Hedgehog: Good morning, Holly Hedgehog. How are you?
Holly Hedgehog: I am so sad!
Hector Hedgehog: Oh, but that’s awful! Why are you so sad, Holly Hedgehog?
Holly Hedgehog: I don’t know. When I woke up this morning I just noticed that I felt sad. I feel like that sometimes.
Hector Hedgehog: When I am sad, I’ve always got a reason for it.
Holly Hedgehog: You’re lucky.
Hector Hedgehog: I’ll cheer you up!
Holly Hedgehog: And how will you do that, Hector Hedgehog?
Hector Hedgehog: I’ll think of something. (He thinks for a while, and then searches for something in his pocket. He pulls out a sweet.) Here, Holly Hedgehog, I’ve got a toffee. Have it! Perhaps it’ll help.
Holly Hedgehog: (putting the toffee in her mouth) They always stick to your teeth, but they taste nice! (She sucks for a little while.) Right, I’ve finished it now.
Hector Hedgehog: Did it help?
