Sample Text:

Narrator:             (To Street Child) Apart from you, you all went along with this charade – just so as to save face? Well, really!

Royal Adviser:   Yes, I know it looks bad

Narrator:             But couldn’t you see you were being taken for a song and a dance?

Weaver 1:            It was quite funny!

Weaver 2:            Especially when the emperor here actually turned up to try on his new clothes

Weaver 1:            After having given us all that money and gold thread and

Emperor:             (Interrupting) Yes, yes. Must you rub it in? Haven’t I been humiliated enough?

Royal Adviser:   (Groaning) Oh, if only I had had the strength to admit to what I could see – as in, nothing! No cloth on the loom, no clothes, just air!

Emperor:             And what a lot of hot air you were! Coming back telling me how wonderfully the work was progressing. How delighted I was going to be with my new clothes!

Royal Adviser:   But I didn’t want to appear either unfit for my job or stupid.

Narrator:             And so, you ended up being both!

Street Child:       I’ll never understand grown-ups!
