  2. (The

    with professional looking writing on it saying Seeing Beyond with Maya
    Fantasma. The lights show dimly on the backdrop giving it an eerie appearance.
    TOM and BECKY are in the audience sitting near the DR corner of the stage. The
    light suddenly gets very bright then a blackout)


    ANNOUNCER

    (On a
    recording. The voice is ghostly. Spooky music plays softly in the background.
    The whole thing is meant to be as serious as possible and not all silly. This
    is all done in darkness and MAYA enters during this. FELICITY enters and stands
    near TOM)


    Welcome to Seeing Beyond with Maya
    Fantasma. All you are about to see is real. There are no tricks, no games, no
    acting involved. Maya Fantasma can really speak with the dead.
  3. MAYA

    (Lights slowly come on.
    She is in her seat, ready)

    Hello, I'm Maya Fantasma. It's a
    pleasure to be in Falling Rock, New Mexico tonight. The spiritual activity here
    is intense. If there are times when I appear to be strained or overwhelmed
    please bare with me. Occasionally, the spirits are anxious to speak and their
    essences overpower me. Tonight will be one of those nights.

    (She stands dramatically)

    Let's get started.


    (She goes up to one
    audience member DL)

    I feel drawn here. Something has
    brought me to you. I see someone about your height, though slightly shorter,
    wishing to talk to you. He has the same color hair as you.

    (Waves her hand at
    audience member)

    No, don't interrupt. Let me finish. I
    must not disrupt the connection.

    (She closes her eyes a
    moment and touches the audience members head)

    He died from a blackening of the chest,
    could be a heart attack? Could be a disease, it's hard to see

    (She backs away)

    Wait. He wishes to speak. The dead
    speak in pictures, so I must interpret them for you. He says you always didn’t
    get along but he still loves you. He says he is sorry about the time he put
    superglue on the toilet seat.

    (Looks at audience
    member)

    Could this be your brother or cousin or
    something?

    Maybe your father? Grandfather? Uncle?

    (No
    positive response. She quickly moves on to another audience member DC. As she
    heads to another, she sees FELICITY near TOM. FELICITY points at TOM excitedly.
    MAYA tries to ignore her and continues)

    I sense another presence. She wishes to
    speak to you. She has gray hair and is slightly shorter. She died peacefully,
    but you were worried she didn't. She

    (FELICITY
    giggles. MAYA gives her a dirty look. TOM and BECKY don't notice FELICITY)

    She wants you to know she is near you
    always. She watches over your children as well.
  4. FELICITY
    Where does she come up with this stuff?

    MAYA
    (Gives Felicity a dirty
    look then moves on)
    So many spirits trying to speak

    FELICITY
    Jumps up excitedly and
    points to TOM)
    Me next! Over here!

    MAYA
    i sense another spirit.
    (She goes L again)

    FELICITY
    No, this way. Come on.

    MAYA
    Someone over here has lost a loved one
    nearly two years ago and has come to speak with him. I am being drawn

    FELICITY
    That’s wrong way over here!

    MAYA
    (To audience member)
    You, you lost a pet recently.

    FELICITY
    A pet? Oh come on. Let's channel some
    people please.

    MAYA
    (On the verge of
    screaming at FELICITY but controls herself)
    Within the last ten years you lost this
    family pet? Twenty maybe? Thirty?
    The pet wishes to let you know that she
    is okay and is waiting for you.

    FELICITY
    Maybe if I meow or bark or something
    (Waves)
    Come on, over here.

    MAYA
    I must
    (Terrified of FELICITY)
    I must, go.
    (Returns to stage)

    FELICITY
    What are you scared of, lady? Come one.
    Do your thing.

    MAYA
    Excuse me. The spirits grow too strong.
    I must break and meditate.
    (Backs to exit)
    I will return in a moment.

    FELICITY
    She acts like she saw a ghost or
    something.
    (TOM and BECKY stand)
  5. TOM
    (Shakes head)
    That was totally weird.

    BECKY
    This is ridiculous. let's go. She's obviously a fake.
  6. TOM
    I don’t know. This is going to sound
    strange, but I feel like something happened.

    FELICITY
    You bet it did, buddy.
    Pokes his arm)

    TOM
    Grabs where FELICITY
    touched him)
    Ah! What was that?

    BECKY
    Tom, Shhh people are looking.
  7. TOM

    But I felt something poke me.

    BECKY
    • (looks through felicity)
    • But there's nobody there.
  8. TOM
    I felt it, I really did

    BECKY
    It's all in your mind. It's just the power of suggestion. This lady says she's seeing ghosts. You think you're seeing ghosts too. If she wasn't convincing she wouldn't be doing shows like this.
  9. FELICITY
    Some help she was though. How am I
    going to, Hey, Tom. Tom, can you hear me?
    (Pokes him again)

    TOM
    It just happened again.
    (Looks around but doesn’t
    see FELICITY)
    This time I thought I heard something.

    BECKY
    Now, you're starting to freak me out. Let's go before I start believing in it too.
  10. TOM
    But I swear

    FELICITY
    Tom? Tom? I wish you could hear me.
    (Screams)
    Tom?!

    TOM

    Did you hear that? Sounds like someone
    said my name.

    BECKY
    I'm leaving. Are you coming?
  11. TOM
    Yeah, I’m getting really creeped out.

    FELICITY
    No, wait. Tom! I have to talk to you!

    TOM
    Okay, grab your purse. Let's go.

    FELICITY
    Oh, no, you don't.
    (Dives under chair and
    hides it under an audience members chair)

    BECKY
    It's gone!!!
  12. TOM
    What?

    BECKY
    My purse! It's Gone!
  13. TOM
    Maybe you left it in the bathroom.
    (They exit)

    FELICITY
    (To audience as she retrieves purse and places it in Becky’s chair)
    Have you ever looked all over the house
    and tried to find your purse or your car keys? Then suddenly you find them in
    plain sight. Now you know how this happens.

    (MAYA peeks out, sees
    FELICITY and disappears again)
    That's it. I'm going to get her back
    out here.

    (Runs up
    and back to where MAYA is. FELICITY chases MAYA back out on stage)

    MAYA
    Please, no. Leave me alone.

    FELICITY
    Look, I came here because I heard
    you're the best. Everyone tells me if anyone can help me you can.

    MAYA
    Please, no. Be gone, spirit.

    FELICITY
    The audience is staring.

    MAYA
    Please, let me off the stage. Don't let
    them see me like this.

    FELICITY
    Like what? This is your chance to
    shine. Those people want a ghost. Let's give them one.

    MAYA
    But I haven't
    (Lowers voice)
    I haven't seen a ghost in ten years.
    I've lost it.

    FELICITY
    Obviously you haven't. I'm here aren't
    I?

    MAYA
    Yes, yes you are.
  14. FELICITY
    Then let's give them what they want.
    (Sees TOM and BECKY
    returning)
    Here they are. Let’s do it.

    BECKY
    There's my purse. How did I miss that?
  15. Tom
    Shh, honey, the show

    Becky
    Let's go. This is terrible.
  16. Maya
    Halt!!

    Becky
    Halt?
  17. TOM
    Are you talking to us?

    FELICITY
    How perceptive little brother.

    MAYA
    There is someone here who wishes to
    speak to you.

    BECKY
    Look, lady. I'm tired of the parlor tricks okay. we're leaving.
  18. FELICITY
    Tell Tom it's his sister, Felicity.

    MAYA
    Tom.

    TOM
    (Stops BECKY)
    She knows my name.

    BECKY
    She got it off our reservations i'm sure.
  19. MAYA
    Your sister wishes to speak to you.

    TOM
    My sister? How does she know my
    sister's dead?

    BECKY
    Lucky guess
  20. TOM
    That's quite a guess.

    BECKY
    I'm out of here.
  21. FELICITY
    Come on, Maya. Say my name. Don't let
    them go.

    MAYA
    Her name is Felicity.

    TOM
    She's right, Becky.

    BECKY
    I know she's right
  22. TOM
    Felicity, are you here?

    FELICITY
    Yes, Tom. I am.

    MAYA
    She says yes she is. She says hello to
    your wife as well.

    BECKY
    She wouldn't do that. She hates my guts.
  23. FELICITY
    (Same time as BECKY)
    I wouldn't do that. I hate her guts.

    BECKY
    She's making it up, she checked into your family history or something. I'll bet she has a whole team of researchers who look into people before they come to the show.
  24. TOM
    Tell me something only Felicity would
    know.

    FELICITY
    Tell him about the time I broke his two
    front teeth. We were playing cowboys and Indians

    MAYA
    She says she broke your two front
    teeth.

    TOM
    Becky, she's right. Felicity did. How
    could Maya Fantasma know that?

    BECKY
    Dental records.
  25. FELICITY
    Oh, I could just kill Becky.

    MAYA
    She says she wants to kill you.

    BECKY
    Now that sounds like Felicity
  26. TOM
    So you believe her?

    BECKY
    No, and I can't believe you do either.
  27. FELICITY
    I know.
    (To MAYA)
    Tell them that Becky wasn't Tom's first
    time.

    MAYA
    Now, this is a family show.

    FELICITY
    Then tell the kids in the audience to
    plug their ears.

    TOM
    What did she say now?

    BECKY
    Something obscene no doubt.
  28. (FELICITY sticks her
    tongue out at BECKY)

    TOM
    Tell me what she said.

    MAYA
    She said that Becky wasn't your first
    time.

    BECKY
    That's not true. Is it Tom? Tom?
  29. Tom
    Well,

    Becky
    I wasn't? you lied to me?
  30. FELICITY
    Oh, this is good.

    MAYA
    Please, please. I'm not here to cause
    problems.

    BECKY
    All these years I thought I was the only one. What else have you lied to me about?
  31. TOM
    Nothing, honest.

    FELICITY
    Well, there was that time you lost her
    favorite ring. Remember that one her grandmother gave her

    MAYA
    I don't think that's going to help,
    Felicity.

    TOM
    What did she say?

    MAYA
    You don't want to know.

    BECKY
    Something else about me, no doubt.
  32. FELICITY
    Bingo! Maybe she should be a psychic.

    BECKY
    • Okay, time out.
    • Let's pretend a minute she's really here. What does he want? Did she come here to ruin our marriage?
  33. FELICITY
    If only I could

    MAYA
    Wait. Please come up on stage. There is
    much she wants to tell you.
    Chairs please. (Becky and Tom bring
    their chairs on stage)

    FELICITY
    One for me, too.

    MAYA
    Bring one for Felicity as well.

    FELICITY
    (Follows
    Tom. She tickles his ear as he walks. He swats at ear like a bug is there)
    This is fun.

    MAYA
    (Holds out her hand and
    FELICITY runs into her)
    Stop!

    FELICITY
    Wow. How did you do that?

    MAYA
    All of you, please sit.

    FELICITY
    She can touch me. The other spirits
    were right. She is good.

    MAYA
    (To audience)
    Let me introduce, Tom and Becky

    FELICITY
    Clemens.

    MAYA
    Tom and Becky Clemens.

    TOM
    She knows our last name.
    (BECKY gives him a dirty
    look)
    I know, I know. From the reservations.
    (Drags BECKY up)
    Come on, this is getting interesting.
    (TOM sits and BECKY
    stands)
    Please. Do this for me.
    (BECKY finally sits)

    FELICITY
    Way to go, Tom. Don’t let that idiotic
    Becky ruin this for us.

    TOM
    Please, tell me everything she says.

    MAYA
    She says don't let that idiot
  34. FELICITY
    (Hits MAYA who feels it)
    Don't tell her that.

    MAYA
    Forgive me. There are some things
    better left unsaid.

    BECKY
    • (stands)
    • I'm not about to sit here and be insulted.
  35. MAYA
    I will be sure to filter out the
    negative vibes

    BECKY
    • YOu better or i'll give you a few negative vibes of my own.
    • (she sits)
  36. FELICITY
    You should have let her go. She’s only
    going to make this harder.

    MAYA
    What do you mean?

    TOM
    What is she saying?

    FELICITY
    (Gets serious)
    Tell Tom I've come to warn him.

    MAYA
    She says she has come to warn you.

    TOM
    Warn me?

    BECKY
    about what?
  37. FELICITY
    (Sounding ominous)
    He's in terrible danger.

    MAYA
    You're in terrible danger.

    TOM
    Danger? From what?

    FELICITY
    From Becky.

    MAYA
    Oh, be serious, Felicity.

    FELICITY
    Oh, must I be? This is so fun.

    TOM
    What did she say?

    BECKY
    I can guess.
  38. FELICITY
    Seriously, I just came to see how my
    little brother is doing.

    MAYA
    You went to all this trouble just to
    drop by and say hello!
    (Angry)
    I can believe this. This is such a
    waste of my talent. I use my talent to bring comfort to people, not torment
    them.
    (Waves hand at FELICITY)
    Spirit, be gone!

    TOM
    No, wait. I must talk to her. Don't send
    her away.

    MAYA
    She only wishes to cause mischief. Send
    her away now or suffer the consequences.

    TOM
    No, that can't be.

    BECKY
    Please, Tom, let it go.
  39. MAYA
    Away foul spirit.

    FELICITY
    Foul? You calling me foul?

    TOM
    Please, don't go, Felicity. Please, I
    must see you.

    FELICITY
    Oh, Tom. Don't worry. I'll never leave
    you.
    (She hugs TOM)

    TOM
    (Shivers)
    Oh, my gosh. What was that?
    (Then he sees FELICITY.
    He is dumbfounded)

    MAYA
    She has left her mark upon you. Now you
    must remain tied to her forever.

    BECKY
    Oh please. GIve it up alread. You're just a two bit fortune teller who should never have taken some acting classes.
  40. MAYA
    Fine. I'll go then. I can see that I'm
    not wanted.

    BECKY
    Good. Don't let the portal to the spirtual world hit you on the butt.
  41. MAYA
    And you can explain to the manager of
    this fine establishment why these people won't be getting a show tonight.

    BECKY
    what?
  42. MAYA
    (Stops and
    holds her hand to her forehead dramatically)
    I predict everyone will demand a full
    refund and you'll have pay for it out of your own pocket.
    (Exits)

    BECKY
    The audience wouldn't do that, would they?
  43. FELICITY
    (TOM has been staring at
    FELICITY)
    Tom? Tom, are you okay?

    TOM
    Becky?

    BECKY
    • (Pulls at his sleeve.
    • Forces smile at audience)
    • Tom? I think we better go.
  44. TOM
    Can you see her?

    BECKY
    see who?
  45. FELICITY
    Tom? Can you see me now?

    BECKY
    Are you okay?
  46. Tom
    I, I can see her. I can see Felicity.

    Becky
    You're scaring me. Please stop.
  47. TOM
    But, I, she's really

    FELICITY
    It must have been the hug.

    TOM
    And I can hear her too.

    BECKY
    I'm sorry folks. My husband seems to be going nuts before our very eyes.
  48. TOM
    Maybe I am going crazy.

    FELICITY
    No, Tom. You're not. I'm really here.

    TOM
    But how? How can you be here?

    BECKY
    Is there a psychologist in the house?
  49. TOM
    Becky, I know this seems off the wall,
    but I'm really seeing her. She's talking to me and everything.

    BECKY
    Is there an exorcist in the house?
  50. FELICITY
    I just wanted so badly to see you, Tom.
    I’ve been worried about you from the moment I left.

    TOM
    Worried about me? Why?

    FELICITY
    Because of her.
    (Points at BECKY)
    She's the reason I can't move on. She's
    the reason I

    BECKY
    Tom, we're leaving this instant. You can come willingly or you can leave in a little white coat that ties in the back.
  51. Tom
    But,

    Becky
    • NOW!!
    • (drags Tom out)
  52. FELICITY

    This isn't over Becky. This is far from
    over.
