After all your MA's and degrees in screenwriting I took a look at 'The Challenge' - figured it must be worth a look. To honest, I was suprised at just how bad you wrote - not just play-wrighting, but grammar and punctuation.
I took a look at this hoping it might be better, and TBH, it's very poor. Your intro'ing speech is not only contorted, but way too long - and then you just start in a really weird place - princess & pauper already in love 'n' ready to marry even before the sculpture's finished. Just odd, and off.
