It does, but when I click it moves my character and then I get yelled at to come back onstage.
Have you got the bucket yet? You need to do that first (the backstage cursor changes to the 'talk' one when you need to go backstage)
I already know it's going to be something obvious. I've did all the dialogue with the lady and the lawyer including the wheel. The bucket is on the table and I've gotten the letter, empty fire exh. and confetti in my inventory. I've tried to click on things and combine things but haven't had any luck with it.
