Front centre, touching one another, three identical grey urns about one yard high.
From each a head protrudes, the neck held fast in the urn's mouth. The heads are
those, from left to right as seen from auditorium, of w2, m and w1. They face
undeiatingly front throughout the play. Faces so lost to age and aspect as to seem
almost part of urns. !ut no masks.
Their speech is prooked by a spotlight pro"ected on faces alone.
The transfer of light from one face to another is immediate.
#o blackout, i.e. return to almost complete darkness of opening, e$cept where
indicated.
The response to light is immediate.
Faces impassie throughout. %oices toneless e$cept where an e$pression is
indicated.
&apid tempo throughout.
The curtain rises on a stage in almost complete darkness.
'rns "ust discernible. Fie seconds.
Faint spots simultaneously on three faces. Three seconds. %oice faint, largely
unintelligible.
