A monologue from the play by Simon Stephens

CHRISTOPHER 

I’ve decided I am going to try and find out who killed Wellington because a Good Day is a day for projects and planning things.

Wellington is a dog that used to belong to my neighbor Mrs. Shears who is our friend  but he is dead now because someone killed him by putting a garden fork through him.

And I found him and then a policeman thought I’d killed him but I hadn’t and then he tried to touch me so I hit him and then I had to go to the police station. 

And I am going to find out who really killed Wellington and make it a project. Even though Father told me not to. I don’t always do what I’m told.

Because when people tell you what to do it is usually confusing and does not make sense.  For example people often say ‘Be quiet’ but they don’t tell you how long to be quiet for.
