The prince and the pauper
This storyboard does not have a description.
Prince:(to Tom). You look tired, and you have been treated cruelly. I am Edward, Prince of Wales. What is your name? Tom:(looking around in awe). Tom Canty, Your Highness. Prince: Come into the palace with me, Tom. (Prince leads Tom into anteroom. Villagers pantomime conversation, and all but a few exit.) Where do you live, Tom? Tom: In the city, Your Highness, in Offal Court.
Prince: Do you have a pleasant life in the Offal Court? Tom: Pleasant enough, Your Highness, save when I'm hungry. We have Punch and Judy shows, and sometimes we lads have fights in the streets. Prince:(eagerly). I should like that. Tell me more. Tom: In summer, we run races and swim in the river, and we love to wallow in the mud.
Tom: Oh, Your Highness, it is not proper for me to wear such clothes. Prince:(excitedly, as he looks in mirror). Heavens, do you not see it? We look like brothers! We have the same features and bearing. If we went about together, dress alike, there is no one who could say which is the Prince of Wales and which is Tom Canty! Tom:(drawing back and rubbing his hand). Your Highness, I am frightened… Prince: Do not worry.
