A story of redemption and self-discovery – with one small twist!
Narrator: Oh dear, why is it some folk really do have to learn the hard way?
Pinocchio: (Sighing) There’s no need to rub it in. I admit, I wasn’t the world’s fastest learner!
Geppetto: Ah, but you got there eventually
Cricket: (Interrupting) Eventually! Wow, but didn’t he just mega try our patience along the way!
Pinocchio: I know. I was a bit of a wooden top!
Cricket: I’ll say!
Geppetto: (Interrupting) No, no! He was a good boy underneath!
Narrator: Oh, there you go again, Geppetto! Making excuses for him!
Geppetto: Well, he was my son!
Cricket: Certainly ‘a chip off the old block’!
Pinocchio: (Angrily) Hey! Watch how you speak to my father!
Cricket: (Gasping) And what about everything you put him through!
Narrator: (Coughing) Ahem! For the benefit of those not in the know, perhaps we should give a little of the story, at this point?
Pinocchio: Not forgetting there are always two sides to a story!
Cricket: Or two versions, if you have anything to do with it! Think nose, is all I’m saying!
