SWR SWAG77 Script for Thrawn Speaks to Sabine about Art

swrpu:

getthrawnin:

Another fan fiction based off of a roleplay performance we did in January 2015. There is a long post production process that we have to get our ideas off the ground due to limited writers (an abilities).

This is a story about a painting of both cultural significance and a sordid past. Essentially, it’s an evil painting created by JAYNOR OF BITH for RUGESS NOME. There is an underlying meaning to this painting though it seems like nothing.

THRAWN has discovered this underlying meaning and wants the painting. But because it’s priceless, it will fetch large sums of money on the Black Market if it were stolen. Currently, the painting is up for auction on Lothal. So the Rebels, needing money decide to enlist the support of LANDO CALRISSIAN (tw) to steal the painting to sell on the Black Market. The Rebels that best knows about painting is SABINE WREN (fb)(tw)(g+)( sabinewren77).

This excerpt is the beginning of the performance. Tell us what you think? Honest opinion. What can we improve?


EXT: LANDO CALRISSIAN
AND SABINE WREN ENTER THE ART
AUCTION CATHEDRAL WITH A SEA OF POLITICIANS AND DIGNITARIES. SABINE WREN IN HER PLUM FORMAL DRESS.

SABINE WREN
I cleaned up for this? Oh…

LANDO CALRISSIAN
Yes. Enjoy the art, my fair bird. U may never see some of these again. Take a
look at this one.

SABINE WREN
That’s no Jaynor painting. That’s holographic arts. I didn’t know this was a
multimedia show.

LANDO CALRISSIAN
Try not to make eye contact with the snooty people here, okay? Of course, not
just one piece is up for sale at an auction. How about this painting?

SABINE WREN
A reprint of “DANCING ON WATER” by the Mon Calamari Opera? A bit
grown up…What are the Imperials into these days?

LANDO CALRISSIAN
Someone up there has a heart for history I suppose or trophies of destruction? I
can’t call it. I hear they recently scoured a dying planet for art and culture
before completely destroying it.

SABINE WREN
Imperials. You could say that again!

CUT TO:

SABINE WREN balks and
then downs a glass of champagne.

LANDO CALRISSIAN
Thirsty eh?

SABINE WREN
You’re making me nervous. Let’s separate and as my body guard, you’re in charge
of those invites.

LANDO CALRISSIAN
Alright, why don’t I blend in with the other Imperials to see if I can find
where they’re either hiding this Jaynor of Bith painting.

CUT TO:

SABINE WREN nods as
she grabs another champagne flute and is tipsy and clumsy

EXT: THRAWN’S
IMPERIAL SHUTTLE LANDS, HEAVILY ARMED STORMTROOPERS SPEED OUT OF THE SHUTTLE.
ENTERS AUCTION WITH HIS CHISS CAPTAIN, THEIR RED EYES AND BLUE SKIN STANDS OUT
AS ALIENS. IDENTIFIES THE PAINTING AS SABINE
WREN
EXAMINES IT.

THRAWN
The “VISAGE PRESAGE” a rather curious name. Say, is that girl familiar to you?

YOGAR
LYSTE
Vaguely familiar, but I can’t place her sir.

AGENT KALLUS
Lyste, check her invitation. But she does looks familiar

YOGAR
LYSTE
Excuse me miss. May I see your invitation?

SABINE WREN
Uh huh. My bodyguard has it. He’s that Stormtrooper over there…

YOGAR LYSTE
Stay here, Miss, while I inquire of him. Excuse me TROOPER, I must view this
woman’s invitation

CUT TO:

SABINE WREN stumbles to the painting ‘VISAGE PRESAGE’
painting when it dawns on her that this is JAYNOR OF BITH masterpiece

SABINE WREN
MY MAKER!

CUT TO:

SABINE WREN backs up and bumps into THRAWN as her
drink splashes

SABINE WREN
Uh…So…Agh…my Lord…Admiral…Sir…

THRAWN
It’s quite alright. Are you enjoying the auction?

CUT TO:

Flimsies are shuffled around between LANDO CALRISSIAN as a STORMTROOPER
and YOGAR LYSTE and his men return to SABINE WREN and THRAWN

LANDO CALRISSIAN
Oh yes, sir. It is right here. She is PRINCESS SELEN YASOR daughterof the
distinguished LORD EN SABA YASOR of HELSKA IV

YOGAR
LYSTE
You will have to come with me until I can verify this invitation

LANDO CALRISSIAN
Who’s the blue face?

SABINE
WREN
How rude TROOPER! ADMIRAL I am the PRINCESS YASOR SELEN and I would be having a
good time if your henchmen would UNHAND ME!

THRAWN
It’s alright, Lieutenant. I’ll be with her…

CUT TO:

YOGAR LYSTE, AGENT KALLUS and LANDO CALRISSIAN disperse.

SABINE
WREN
Sir, you’re a CHISS…err…Imperial Admiral and you like art…err…do you like art?

THRAWN
Of course I am. Who would dare impersonate an Imperial officer? And I do enjoy
art quite a bit. Though, very few truly understand art. For instance, what do
you think of this piece, the “VISAGE PRESAGE”?

SABINE
WREN
This piece? Odd direction by JAYNOR…I mean the colors are odd for what he
usually does and the pattern and design and lighting are awkward for his usual
work.

THRAWN
I believe JAYNOR created this piece in his younger days. Its patterns are odd,
but they do mean something. What do you think the piece means?

SABINE
WREN
It means patterns to a place far off?

THRAWN takes a deep breath to explain
