[Hearse]

(Old Sampson and his partner are pulling the hearse slowly down the street.)

SNEED:
Not a sign. Where is she?

GWYNETH:
She's vanished into the ether, sir. Where can she be?

SNEED:
You tell me, girl.

GWYNETH:
What do you mean?

SNEED:
Gwyneth, you know full well.

GWYNETH:
No, sir. I can't.

SNEED:
Use the sight.

GWYNETH:
It's not right, sir.

SNEED:
Find the old lady or you're dismissed. Now, look inside, girl. Look deep. Where is she?

GWYNETH:
She's lost, sir. She's so alone. Oh, my lord. So many strange things in her head.

SNEED:
But where?

GWYNETH:
She's excited about tonight. Before she passed on, she was going to see him.

SNEED:
Who's him?

GWYNETH:
The great man. All the way from London. The great, great man.

[Dressing room]

MAN:
Mister Dickens, Mister Dickens. Excuse me, sir, Mister Dickens. This is your call. Are you quite well, sir?

DICKENS:
Splendid, splendid. Sorry.

(Everyone say Hi! to Simon Callow.)

MAN:
Time you were on, sir.

DICKENS:
Absolutely. I was just brooding. Christmas Eve. Not the best of times to be alone.

MAN:
Did no one travel with you, sir? No lady wife waiting out front?

DICKENS:
I'm afraid not.

MAN:
You can have mine if you want.

DICKENS:
Oh, I wouldn't dare. I've been rather, let's say, clumsy, with family matters. Thank God I'm too old to cause any more trouble.

MAN:
You speak as though it's all over, sir.

DICKENS:
No, it's never over. On and on I go, the same old show. I'm like a ghost, condemned to repeat myself for all eternity.

MAN:
It's never too late, sir. You can always think up some new turns.

DICKENS:
No, I can't. Even my imagination grows stale. I'm an old man. Perhaps I've thought everything I'll ever think. Still, the lure of the limelight's as potent as a pipe, what? Eh? On with the motley.
