SCRIPT LEAK:DEAD POETS SOCIETY 2




Int: An old mansion in the Lake District.

THE GHOSTS OF KEATS, BYRON, LARKIN,BETJEMAN AND OTHER ASSORTED DEAD POETS ARE SAT AROUND A TABLE IN A GRAND DINING HALL DRINKING AND CHATTING. BETJEMAN STANDS UP AND CLINKS A WINE GLASS.

Betjeman
Order, Order.

THE GHOSTS FALL SILENT



Betjeman
Thank you gentleman and welcome to the inaugural meeting of the Dead Poets Society. We all know why we’re gathered here today…

BYRON PUTS HIS HAND UP

Betjeman
Yes, Byron

Byron
Sorry but I was unfeasibly high on opium when you told me. Do you mind going over it again?

Betjeman
There’s no time for that I’m afraid. Keats will fill you in.

KEATS PUTS HIS HAND UP.

Betjeman
John?

Keats
I’m afraid I’d smoked rather too much hashish when we last spoke and I can’t quite recall the details.

Betjeman
Ok, fine. Is there anybody here who wasn’t smashed on drugs when I told them the plan?


NOBODY PUTS THEIR HANDS UP EXCEPT FOR LARKIN.

Larkin
Me, me!

Betjeman
Thank you Philip. I knew I could rely on you. Could you please tell these addled miscreants
why we are all here today.

Larkin
Sorry I can’t.

Betjeman
Why ever not?

Larkin
Well I was exceptionally drunk when you called and I haven’t the foggiest idea what you are talking out.

Betjeman
Oh for heaven’s sake. This really is intolerable. Right. If I go over it again do you all promise to focus on what I am saying?. If you do say aye.

Everyone
Aye!

Betjamin
And you also all agree to refrain from alcohol and narcotics until the plan is carried out?

Everyone
Aye!

Betjeman
Lovely. Ok. I’ve gathered you all here today because I think It’s time we…


CHARLES BUKOWSKI STUMBLES THROUGH THE DOOR DRUNK, SWIGGING FROM A BOTTLE OF JIM BEAM.

Betjeman
Mr Bukowski. How nice of you to join us.

Bukowski
F*ck off Betjeman. Hey fella’s. Johnny Wilmot is throwing a party next door and he’s got a f*ck load of drink and drugs. Anyone coming?

THE ROOM CLEARS IN A HURRY

Betjeman
Thanks for that Charlie.

Bukowski
(burp)

  1. Robert Burns, Scotland’s Bard & Poet said thank you for NOT including him. He inspired Lord Byron, William Wordsworth and Percy Blyth Shelley who began the Romantics. Before knocking them, read what they wrote and see why we remember them.
