Act I: Love & Life

Prologue

Two households, both alike in dignity,

In fair Legonia, where we lay our scene,

From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,

Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.

From forth the fatal loins of these two foes

A pair of star-cross’d lovers take their life;

Whole misadventured piteous overthrows

~

Do with their death bury their parents’ strife.

The fearful passage of their death-mark’d love,

And the continuance of their parents’ rage,

Which, but their children’s end, nought could remove,

Is now the two hours’ traffic of our stage;

The which if you with patient ears attend,

What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.

~ Romeo And Juliet, Shakespeare

Scene 1: Legonia




Like any other city in any other country, Legonia was a place where 20 percent of the population controlled 80 percent of the wealth. And 50 percent of the said 20 percent of the prosperous population was the House of Highbrow.

Lord Highbrow himself was a banker of great esteem (although he helped caused the recent subprime mortgage crisis) and he carried a suitcase filled with cash, contracts, documents, cheques and project papers everywhere he went. His family lived in a house so high that it towered over all the houses in Legonia.

So it was without doubt that Lord Highbrow was very proud of his house and subsequently, very proud of himself. But the House of Highbrow was but 50 percent of the prosperous population in Legonia. The missing 50 percent lay across the street and they were called the House of Stoutheart.

Lord Stoutheart was a lumberjack and made his millions by killing innocent trees. He lived in a house that was broad and big with well designed door lamps and roofs.

The Highbrows and the Stouthearts had an old quarrel that started with their forefathers, three generations ago. The Highbrows were jealous that the Stouthearts had such nicely designed homes.

While the Stouthearts, on the other hand, were jealous that the Highbrows had taller houses with chimneys!

The jealousy, enmity and evil intent of both houses reached such a height that a servant of the Highbrows could not meet a servant of the Stouthearts without exchanging insults,  fierce words and gunshots. These brawls and bloodshed disturbed much of the happy streets and poorer citizens of Legonia. But as the bickering between the two families became more frequent, the citizens of Legonia soon became desensitized and carried on with their usual lives.

Scene II Lego and Life

In the house of Stoutheart, there was a particular youth that became more notorious than any other Stoutheart that had ever lived. And because he loved playing Lego so much when he was young, his father nicknamed him Lego. Duh!

Lego was always getting himself into trouble and mischief. But he was also smart and brilliant! He graduated at the age of 18 from a prestigious University and won the top prize scholar award.

But to the horror of his mother, he took up Go-Kart racing after his graduation!

But even in Go-Karting, he would emerge as No. 1, winning many trophies and prizes.

Lego was just a person that could win with ease. A child prodigy that any person would like to be.

There was one thing, however, that Mr. Lego Stoutheart could not win. And that was the love of the mayor’s daughter, Mona.

No matter how he tried, she just would not accept Lego and his love. In fact, the closer he tried to get to her, the more Mona avoided him.
