AN EXCERPT FROM
THREE SISTERS, OR THE DORMOUSE’S TALE

By Christopher Mirto and Brian Valencia


(A sickening creaking noise is heard as a large wooden bucket descends from the heavens on a heavy chain.)


OLGA

André?!

(The word “André” echoes up the shaft.)

MASHA
 (rushing to peek inside)
He’s the only man we’ll ever need! The only one we can ever count on.

    #2a    André’s Cello Cues    Cello

(A cello plays a beautiful melodic phrase way up and out of sight.)

IRINA
Has he packed something for us this time!?

MASHA
He must have heard us celebrating your un-birthday, Irina. Look! Party favors, and a gift for you.

(ANDRÉ’s cello responds.)

IRINA
(holding her gift box)
Why, we must have the—the best brother in the whole world! Thank you, André!

(“André” echoes. HE continues to play.)

OLGA
Oh, listen to him play!

MASHA
Go ahead! Open your present!

IRINA
(she does)
It’s . . . a set of finger paints, and . . . cheese.

ALL 3
Cheese?!

MASHA
(beat; moment)
Oh— . . .

(SHE gives it to the DORMOUSE. ANDRÉ plays.)

OLGA
(with all the warmth and love in her heart)

No, André, I don’t know why a raven is like a writing desk.
