Project Main Details

Curiosity House 
This is a show about a show. Curiosity House is a learning-and-growing program for kids--and our fictional podcast is mostly about the backstage and behind the scenes comedy / drama of their lives. At Curiosity House, the puppets and stuffed animals aren't operated by human adults, they're real creatures in and of themselves, so when the cameras are off, they're just living their lives. In this scene, a young peacock is practicing very basic spelling with Mary, Queen of Blocks... and he starts asking her some grown-up questions.

Mary has been around for hundreds of years, so she's pretty chill. And reserved. She's hardly shocked by innocent questions, though she can become testy, she might even raise her voice when she's affronted--but it's really all about the blocks, so she'll always go back to that.

This is a small role in two or three key scenes, and my estimate that it's 1000 words is a cautious one--it's shaping up to be less than that.

Script Details

PEACOCK: Mary Queen of Blocks? What’s syphilis?

MARY: Well… It’s a sickness.

PEACOCK: How do you catch it?

MARY: By lying.

PEACOCK: Am I going to get syphilis because I lied?

MARY: No. You can put that block there and spell a word if you like.


MARY: Yes, you can spell “cat”

PEACOCK: Oh! Oh, yes. Should I tell you what I lied about?

MARY: I’m not a cleric, I cannot absolve you.

PEACOCK: Do bad people get syphilis?

MARY: Yes. As do the good.

PEACOCK: Do the bad people give it to the good people?

MARY: No more frequently than the good confer it ‘pon the bad unknowingly. Now, stack another block atop those four. Carefully. Well done. But if you should stack another, I tell you, all of them will fall.

PEACOCK: Can I try anyway?

MARY: You must do as your conscience dictates.

PEACOCK: Why isn’t Anthony Bear allowed to play here anymore, Mary Queen on Blocks?

MARY: He was a traitor.

PEACOCK: What’s a traitor?

MARY: A traitor is a false-hearted subject who acts against his queen as Anthony did when he brought a ball. He knows my cousin, Queen Ball-izabeth, has seeded Ballish uprisings within my court of blocks. To bring a ball into my court is certainly a treason, and justly was he banished.
