A Present from Santa

1-act Drama (1M, 1F)  Approx running time: 60 mins

This is an extended and more dramatic version of Firewall, rewritten as a two-hander and allowing great opportunity for two talented young actors to put in remarkable performances. Mark is a 24 year old website whiz-kids working for Surprising Gifts, an internet-based toy and gift company who is having to reorganise the database and website in time for the expected Christmas rush.

While he’s working, he is interrupted by a young school girl who announces that she has hacked into their computer system and breached their firewall with a devastating virus, one that could potentially destroy their company.

Characters in order of appearance

MARK: A young webmaster, bright who enjoys business and pleasure in equal measure.

JESSICA: A twelve year old schoolgirl, pretty and perhaps quite slight, but with definite inner strength (can be played by an older girl, but must look young)
