Scene takes place in an Indian restaurant. The Slater family are celebrating Zoe’s
18th birthday
CHARACTERS: KAT: A 30-year-old woman, she is considered a slapper. She is
loud and confrontational. Zoe’s older sister
ZOE: An 18-year-old woman. She is the youngest of 4 sisters. Carefree and keen
to see the world
ZOE: Everyone! I’ve got an announcement to make!
KAT: Don’t be soft, you’re 18! What could you have to say?!
ZOE: Uncle Harry’s asked me to work in his pub in Spain. And I said yes! I’m
leaving Walford!
KAT: Yeah? Well let’s go and ask him shall we, see what he says?!
KAT: Look, just shut up, and sit down Zo
ZOE: No! You’re always doing this to me, and I ain’t having it! What’s it got to do
with you anyway?!
KAT: It’s got everything to do with me
ZOE: Fine! I’ll go and ask Dad now then shall I! [storms out of the restaurant and
quickly walks down the road]
ZOE: No! I’m fed up of you picking on me all the time! Embarrassing me in front
of everyone!
KAT: Will you just listen to me!
ZOE: No! I’m going! And there ain’t nothing you can do about it!
ZOE: Why don’t you just leave me alone! [KAT grabs Zoe by the arm]
KAT: You’re not going to Spain and that’s that!
ZOE: I have to do everything you say now do I?!
ZOE: You can’t tell me what to do, [shouts] YOU AIN’T MY MOTHER
[ZOE turns to look at Kat, shocked]
