Sample of script:

Scene opens as MIME 1 enters stage left. He is wearing a red heart on his chest. He stands at center stage with head bowed for a moment, to allow the audience to settle. Slowly he raises his head and looks around. He shows that he is quite excited, and begins to dance around, waving his arms and smiling.
After a few moments of this, MIME 1 looks around. He looks around to see if there is anyone else around to be with. Looking all over the stage, he realizes he is all alone. With a sad face, MIME 1 slowly walks back to center stage.
Suddenly, MIME 1 has an idea and gets a big smile on his face. He cups his hands around his mouth and begins to ‘call out’ in every direction, hoping that someone will hear him. MIME 1 continues to call out as he dances around, trying to show anyone who may be watching what a fun time he is having. After a few moments of this, MIME 1 realizes he is all alone, and sadly walks back to his spot at center stage.
While MIME 1 is pouting, facing the audience, MIMES 2, 3, and 4 enter stage right. They slowly walk in, looking around in amazement. MIMES 2, 3, and 4 are also wearing large red hearts on their chests, however each of their hearts are shaped a little differently. They must all look like hearts, but they have to have enough of a difference between them to be visible to the audience. As MIME 2, 3, and 4 look at each other, they get very excited and begin to dance around.
Up until now, MIME 1 has not noticed the others enter. As soon as they start dancing around, they quickly catch MIME 1’s eye. MIME 1 gets very excited as he now has friends to play with. He joins the others in dancing and skipping around. After a few moments, MIME 1 stops right in his tracks while the others continue dancing. MIME 1 gets a very disappointed look on his face when he sees the hearts on the chests of the others. He continues to stare at the others until they stop dancing and wonder what is wrong with MIME 1.
MIME 1 points to his heart on his chest. He smiles as he outlines its shape with his fingers and shows how proud he is of it. While the others watch, they too are very impressed and excited by this. MIMES 2, 3, and 4 line up shoulder to shoulder and each proudly display their hearts.
