(An excerpt from The Last Shout, Part 2. London, 1996. The Monsoons’ kitchen. Edina is opening her mail.)
Edina: (Reading letter.) Do I want to do something on the Millennium Committee? Do I want to do something for the Millennium? (To Patsy.) Do you think I should do that?
Patsy: (Pinning up her hair.) Well, when is it?
Edina: (Looking at letter.) It doesn’t say. (To Saffy.) Darling, when is it, when is it, the Millennium?
Saffy: (Pointedly.) The year 2000.
Edina: (Balling up letter.) Well, why are they bothering me now, eh? Anyway, I know exactly what they should do.
Saffy: (Disdainfully.) What? Let me guess: a free Stones concert in Hyde Park.
Edina: No, no, no. A huge worldwide bacchanalian feast. They should just live it, darling.
Patsy: And a free Stones concert, Eddy.
Edina: (Quickly agreeing.) Yeah, and a free Stones concert.
