Scene 3/ Part 2


Scene 3/Part 2:
Jim goes inside a gift shop.
Shop-keeper 2: How can I help you, sir?
Jim: My wife has lovely hair and she deserves the amazing combs set you are displaying on the shop window.
 Young man 2: It’s already mine, sir. I reserved it last week. I’m giving to my wife.
Narrator 3: Della sacrificed with her hair to buy Jim a gift. Poor Jim, he still doesn’t know that.
Jim: I have no one in this life except my loving and caring wife. Please, I sold my watch to have enough money to buy her a gift. She only deserves this set. Please, sir.
Shop-keeper 2: Young man, there are other beautiful things you can buy for your wife. Let that poor person and his wife be happy on Christmas.
Gentleman 2 gives the set to Jim.
Jim buys the watch and rushes home.
Narrator 4: What an ironic situation!
Poor Della and Jim! How will each of them react to this situation?
Let’s watch the final scene now.

Scene 3/ Part 1

Narrator 2: Della has the money now, what about Jim? Does he have enough money to buy Della a gift?
Della 3 & Jim are in the middle of the stage, not facing each other.
In the background, a song is played “Believe again.” Della & Jim turn and dance together. The song fades away.
Della & Jim walk in two different directions…
Shop 1:
Shop-keeper 1: Good evening, madam. How can I help you?
Della 3: I want to buy a gift for my husband and I saw a platinum watch chain two weeks ago. Do you still have it?
Shop-keeper: You mean the one that the young man is holding.
Della 3 (turns around and looks at him): Yes, it is.
Della 3 (walks towards the young man): Excuse me, sir. Can I have the chain, please?
Young man 1: Sorry, lady. I saw it first and I want to give it to my grandfather on Christmas. It really suits him.
Della 3: Please, sir. It’s so important to me… Please.
(She starts crying.)




Shop-keeper 1: Sir, give it to her please. I have other collections. I will show them to you.
The young man hesitantly gives the watch chain to Della.
She holds it and runs happily in the street.

Lady 1: (stands and stares at Della) Are you serious?
Della 2: When it’s Christmas and you don’t have money to buy a gift what can you do?
Lady 2: There must be a solution but not to sell this beautiful hair.
Mme Sophronie: Let me see, Della. How much do you want?
                                I can only give you 2o dollars. D’accord?
Lady 1 & 2: No.. Don’t do that!
Lady 1: If I had your hair I would never sell it.
Lady 2: Think before you do it.
Mme Sophronie:  Femmes, leave her alone, s’il vous plait.

People


People are of different types & kinds.
They have different mentalities & minds.

They share knowledge with each other.
But some don’t even try to bother.

Watch out the stupid ones!
& stick to the clever ones.

If you need help & you are quite confused,
Go to your friend for assistance, definitely you’ll be amused.

If being sad or mad,
Stay away from the bad.

Take your time to relax & rest
& then see whom you can pick for the best.

People are mystery
Since the beginning of history
Whatever is said?
Nothing can be led
To their strange reality!

Oh, Jim please forgive me. I don’t have anything to sell. (She looks around.) Oh, really there’s noththth (She stops and walks to the mirror.)

No.. There is something to sell… (She touches her hair and looks at herself on the mirror.)

But how can I sell my hair.. Jim won’t love me if I do so..
Jim loves me not my hair, he always used to sing for me..

(In the background, “Just the way you are” is played.)

I have no choice, I have to sell it.

Jealousy


Jealous people are so sick
They do nothing but pick
On every person they see
Saying: I wish it was me

They never get tired of criticizing
And they never care of socializing

It’s better to stay away from them
And never care or pay attention to them

They will end up lonely
Because it’s what they deserve only
Stay away from them
Don’t you ever say I knew them!
