Fight of Fancy
Nimasha Fernando – Musaeus College – Sri Lanka
English (30 min.)
The Flight of Fancy follows the story of a little girl named Ellen, her restrictive life portrayed to the audience by her seven emotions – Anger, Fear, Sadness, Disgust, Happiness, Surprise and Lazy. Ellen’s attempt at opening the window in her room without her parent’s consent turns disastrous, as her parents are now convinced that she is a bird and therefore can fly.
Poor Ellen is miserable and her emotions try their best to help her adopt to her new lifestyle. Ultimately, Ellen’s parents find out, accidently, that what they saw as her “flying”, was actually Ellen falling off the ladder in fright. Teaching you to think twice before you act.
