MEG Hush. CHARLES WALLACE What is it? CALVIN You hear something, Meg? Beat. ACTOR 3 It was a glorious, star-strewn night.
February 13, 2010 78 MEG Listen. ACTOR 3 And on this night three stars shone brighter than all the rest. Three star-lights appear and we hear the bubbling laughter of Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which. Meg smiles. End of play.
February 13, 2010 1 Appendix: Optional Narration Note: Narration is to be avoided wherever a suitably convincing stage effect can accomplish the story-telling (see “A Note about Staging” at front of script). But in a few cases I foresee a need for some additional narration for some productions, as follows. p. 28 (to be divided among available ensemble members) – Then something began happening to Mrs. Whatsit. – Her plump little body began to shimmer, to quiver, to shift, the wild colors of her hobo clothes fading and whitening as her body stretched and unfolded until finally, standing before them was a creature more beautiful than any Meg had ever seen. – Its powerful white body looked something like a horse, except that rising up from its back was an almost human torso, with a head that was like a man’s head – – but with perfect, soft, feminine features. p. 32, for Actor 2 Suddenly The Black Thing seemed to seethe and vibrate, as though shot through with electricity. And then a great burst of light pierced the Darkness, and wherever the light touched, the Darkness disappeared, until it was completely gone. Finally the shining light began to fade, until it, too, had disappeared, and all they could see was a peaceful sea of stars. p. 54, for Actor 2 The wall opened for a moment and Charles Wallace walked through – but it closed again before Meg and Calvin could follow.
