Whenever - Duologue for Boy & Girl Aged 11+


EMILY: is a young orphan who lives in the Victorian era. Her favourite uncle, Martin, has invented a time machine. In a heated argument, her other uncle Lucas attacks Martin. Emily believes that she has seen a murder. She hides from Lucas in the time machine and presses the controls to escape by travelling through time. She arrives in an air raid in World War II, only to be abducted and taken to her wicked uncle Lucas – now an old man of ninety. She is rescued by OSCAR, an Air Raid Patrol warden, and they escape using the time machine, but they don’t know where and when they have ‘landed’.

Duologue – Characters: EMILY & OSCAR

EMILY: (Looking about her) Where are we now? I think we have moved forward again. I cannot make this Machine go backwards. Uncle Martin was right. (Aware of Oscar) Oscar? Are you hurt! Oscar!

OSCAR: (Emerging) Where are we?
EMILY: I am uncertain. Somewhere in the future, I presume…
OSCAR: I don’t believe it. You mean we’ve – we’ve actually travelled – through time? It was all true?
