MURMURS IN THE ROOM
WE OPEN ON TWO FEET ON HEELS. They start to walk in
THE FEET SEPARATE AND WALK AWAY IN AN OPPOSITE DIRECTION. It’s
WINIFRED AND VERA
There are eight seats at the long conference table, three at each side. Both sides are occupied save for the seats at edges.
There are bottle waters in front of each seat – and a newspaper at the empty seats.
The workers stand as curtsey.
BOTH LADIES
Please sit.
As the ladies sit at the empty seats opposite each other.
VERA
As we all know about Mr Wena the accountant, was sacked this morning because of the discrepancies in the company’s account, we are glad to introduce to you the new accountant, Miss Omone. Miss Omone please introduce yourself to the company.
 OMONE
(stands)
My name is Miss Joy Omone, the new accountant of Winive.
CHORUS
You’re welcome.
Winifred smiles and her eyes stray to the picture on the newspaper in front of her, she furrows and picks it.

FEMALE VOICE
While the country battles to survive, the two sisters battle with love... in a very unusual way.

IN THE PAPER —
HEADLINES:
CLIVE DANIELS’ picture: THE HANDSOME AND RICH NIGERIAN ACTOR ON THE SET OF ‘THE STARS’ AN INTERNATIONAL MOVIE IN CALIFORNIA, USA

Winifred smiles passionately gazing at Clive’s picture in the paper, lost in the realm.
VERA
Thank you. To save our time, we will skip the normal introduction. Please, get to know each other after this meeting.
Vera looks to pick up from there but Winifred is busy smiling at the paper in her hands, and that makes everyone look at Winifred.
Winifred looks up and sees them; not flinching, she looks at Omone.
WINIFRED
(smiles)
Welcome Miss Omone.
She opens the paper to the stock market page and sweeps her eyes through.
OMONE
(smiles)
Thank you ma.
WINIFRED
(reads; smiles and shakes head)
Err about the issue of this recession and how—
TOM
Famine ma.
Others laugh and Winifred smiles watching them.
TOM(CONT’D)
Yea, this is simply famine; we are just trying to decorate it with grammar.
Winifred and Vera raise their brows at that.
WORKER#2
Yea Tom is right. This is pure famine. It’s in the bible. Everything is hard, prices are high which means no food for the common, what else could it be?
WORKER#3
Famine.
WORKER#2
Hmhmm.
WINIFRED
Alright, famine right? About the issue of this famine and how it’s affecting our products.
Vera notices Clive’s picture on the newspaper in front of her; she smiles and picks it. Some workers notice her.

FEMALE VOICE
They battle for a man without even realising. But the irony is, while one is for love, the other-- is for status.

TOM
Madam, we really need to do something about it. It’s really affecting the company, I mean our competitors are already increasing their price and I think we should do the same.
OTHERS
(support)
Yeah
WINIFRED
(smiles)
We all know increasing the price of sausage rolls in this country won’t be that easy. Other products can be increased yes, but sausage rolls?
(chuckles)
No. Now let me ask you a question; a sausage roll is N50 and you want to increase it to what, 60, N70? Which one would be easier for you, bringing out N500 to buy ten pieces or bringing out N560 to buy ten pieces?
Others ‘hmm’, nodding their heads in understanding.
WINIFRED(CONT’D)
So I think increasing the price is out of it if we want to maintain our rolls in town.
OTHERS
(nodding)
Yes.
WINIFRED
So we cannot increase the price and still want to make great profit. I think we should cut down on the size, by size I mean reduce the ingredients. If one bag makes 40 cartons, now I want one bag to make 60 cartons
OTHERS
Good idea.
Winifred looks at one of them.
WINIFRED
Operations, I hope you agree?
WORKER #4
Yes ma’am, that’s a very excellent idea.
WINIFRED
Good, so... and for other products, do the same.
WORKER#4
Okay ma’am
WINIFRED
(looks at Vera)
Vera?
Vera startles and looks up from the paper.
VERA
(smiles)
Yes! brilliant idea Winnie, I concur.
WINIFRED
Then it’s solved. Have a nice day.
ALL
You too ma’am.
Omone wants to stand.
WINIFRED
Miss Omone, please stay back.
Others leave.
