Scene 3 Yes

The Old Woman laughs and dances backwards. There is music and suddenly we realise a curtain is rising up. A performance seems to be beginning. The characters are crisscrossing the stage a confrontation seems to be developing between two of the men. Suddenly a shout is heard and all the characters seem to stop acting. Cut to close up of the woman.

Someone’s directing this rehearsal; they’re watching each twitch and seeing each gland fail, there is someone who knows if I supposed to speak.


YES Yes she does

MAYBE Maybe it will soon make sense

NO No I won’t think about it.
