All That Fall

Excerpt

Rural sounds. Sheep, bird, cow, cock, severally, then together.

Silence.

Mrs. Rooney advances along country road towards railway-station. Sound of her dragging feet.

Music faint from house by way. "Death and the Maiden." The steps slow down, stop.

MRS. ROONEY: Poor woman. All alone in that ruinous old house.

Music louder. Silence but for music playing.

The steps resume. Music dies. Mrs. Rooney murmurs melody. Her murmur dies.

Sound of approaching cartwheels. The cart stops. The steps slow down, stop.

MRS. ROONEY: Is that you, Christy?

CHRISTY: It is, Ma'am.
