HOBART HUGHES ........home ......back to opening

Scene 3 Maybe

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

Woman
Is that a character in the audience or someone directing. Mitch? Is he directing? He’s never done any theatre before.... he’s a barman but he would be good at directing. He did infulence Gough Whitlam after all. Is there someone who knows what going on?

 

YES Yes she does

MAYBE Maybe it will soon make sense

NO No I won’t think about it.
