Alice's Nightmare

Scene opens up to a red spotlight in center of the stage, a teenage girl stands there, wearing a grey summer dress with a white apron, dark stains upon the outfit, give the impression of blood, black school shoes, her hair pushed back with a black ribbon, a heart beating, and whispering in the background. She has dark hair hanging down around her shoulders tangled and untamed. she's sitting down upon her hind legs in the middle of the red spotlight looking defeated, every so often the red light will flicker (preferably during a heartbeat)

Alice: stop it…

(whispering continues)

Alice: It wasn't my fault…

(whispering gets louder, she covers her ears and starts to rock back and fourth heart thumping increases)

Voice 1: (raspy female) You let them die…

Alice: (whispering) no…

Voice 2: (harshly male) While you dreamed away in your safe little bed they died…

Alice: You don't know anything, you don't know what happened, and you don't know me…

Voice 3: (female almost seductive) oh but we do… Alice…

Alice: (shocked) Who are you? (whispering continues) WHO ARE YOU?! (heart thumping increases)

Voice 1: You wanted them to die didn't you alice?

Alice: No I didn't, I didn't want them to die it wasn't my fault

Voice 2: You ran away to save yourself (pause) you left your mother

Voice 3: your father

Voice 1: and your little sister…

Voice 2: To die...

Alice: It isn't true!

Voice 3: oh but it is… isn't it Alice?

Alice: Stop it just stop

Voice 4: (young female) Why did you let me die Alice? You said you would protect me…

Alice: (burying her head in her hands) oh god…

(whispering continues heart beat continues)

Voice 1: you're a selfish little girl Alice, all you did was dream away about wonderland without even caring about anybody else…

(the whispering comes to life, they are the voices of characters from Alice in wonderland, they sound distant, quoting random quotes from the book, some are inaudible)

Alice: (younger voice) but I don't want to go among mad people

Cheshire cat: oh but we're all mad here…

(voices continue but softer)

Alice: make it stop…please…

Card Guard: The queen wants red flowers not white!

Voice 2: your selfish little tears won't save them now…

Alice: I'm so sorry…

Mad Hatter: Tea for two?

Voice 3: Roses are red…

Voice 5: (mother like voice) We'll always protect you Alice…

Voice 1: Violets are blue…

Voice 6: (father voice) Alice run save yourself!

Voice 2: You're family's dead…

Voice 4: Alice I'm scared…

Voice 3: Because of you…

Queen of hearts: Off with her head…

(Stage suddenly fills with a red light then darkness, as the whispering dies down, only the thumping of the heart is heard then suddenly stops, then you hear the slice of a knife.)
