how to create a great play

the characters: white prince (whose father dies at the beginning but somehow doesn't become king himself), the princess (the white prince's promised wife? shouldn't she be a queen too?), the evil counselor, the dark prince, the good goddess

the places: the inherited kingdom, the palace, the evil labyrinth of caves, the perilous road, the fishermen's village

the great magical inheritance (i kid you not): the painstakingly ornamented astrolabe, the flourishingly sheathed khanjar (dagger) and the exquisitely flawless magic pearl

the plot: if you can't figure out the plot thus far, maybe you should go see the play
