Summary

The play demonstrates girls' suffering with schooling in underdeveloped countries especially within limited revenues families in the coutryside. Those families would very often deprive their girls to go on schooling after their Bacalauriate degree though they are high achivers. The play illustrates the contradictional vision between girls'schooling and boys assistance which goes sometimes to encouragements and praises not to drop out of school.

Act one

 Scene one

The father is reading a newspaper and the mother is sewing

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)

 

Scene two

The son comes back from school whistling and gets in.

 

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)

Mother: Why???

Son: teachers went on a strike (he throws back his schoolbag)

Mother: That’s nonsense (Nodding her head right and left).

 

Scene three

The daughter got in and looking in the schoolbag

 

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).

 

Monolgue

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.

A paper falls down on  the stage

Bearing a message: Education only for boys.

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

The end
