Sample of script:

actors come on stage, all talking at once

Head, loud: People!

Foot: It’s always about you, isn’t it Ear?

Ear: Well you are so into yourself Foot!

Hand: Well both of you drive me crazy, I just don’t know if I can handle much more!

Nose: I have no idea what you guys are going on about, I mean, what is so special about being a smelly old foot.

Elbow: I am with you Nose, I mean can you just imagine living your life as a floppy ear . . I am just sayin’ . . .

Eye: Will all of you just tone it down for a change, I can’t see why all of you think you are special!

Head: People! . . You are giving me such a me ache!
