Mother: what is the news?
Father: Not very special. As usualyou know.
Mother: so what?
Father: crimes, political conflicts and school strikes.
Mother: school strikes? For what?
Father: extra money (gesturing with his hand and gets out)
Son: good morning mom.
Mother: Hey, hey, haven’t you had a class this morning?
Son: It’s a day off again (trying to put his earphones ad gets out)
Son: teachers went on a strike (he throws back his schoolbag)
Mother: That’s nonsense (Nodding her head right and left).
Mother: Hey, look who is there? What the hell are you doing?
Have you done the dishes?
Daughter: Yes mom.
Mother: Have you cleaned up the mess?
Daughter: Yes mom.
Mother: I’ll see (pushing the schoolbag by her foot and gets out).
The daughter kneels and starts crying. Looking up,
Why not? Am I not a human being? Am I not a person? I wanna go to school, I wanna learn, I wanna be someone in the world.
This is my right; nobody should rob It from me.
This is your right too (pointing to the audience) struggle for It.
I have a dream; can’t I go for It??? (Gesture)
You have dreams, go for them, and keep yourselves alive.
Daughter: turns and glances at the paper. She handles It and goes on crying.
Son: (just got in) what’s wrong sister?
Daughter: No answer. She hands him the paper.
Son: he tears apart the paper and puts his schoolbag on her shoulders and takes her to school.
The two brothers get out of the stage through a gateway meant to be a school doorway.
The audience applauds
