The Dinosaur And The Princess By Audrey Kessinger

I’m rewriting, really I am. I was working away in my room when Audrey, my five year old daughter, walked in and announced that she wanted to write a play. Since she can’t write or type yet, that means I had to put my script down and write hers. Things you do for love.

The Dinosaur And The Princess Play by Audrey Kessinger

DINOSAUR I want it!

PRINCESS I want it!

DINOSAUR I want it!

PRINCESS I want it!

End of play.
