Play scr pts
When people perform a story on stage, we call it a play. A play script is the

We can picture what the play is like when we read the play script.

of it! (Takes out the photo from his jacket pocket)
Luckily, I was wearing this jacket when the machine
Janice: (Studies the photo carefully) It's in black and white,

Nathan: That's great! Now what should we do to find this time
