Cinderella’s name to Cindy, and the stepsisters have become Sara and Tara.
Please feel free to do the same.


SCENE 1
(The living room of a contemporary home. Cinderella, a girl of about nine, sits at the desk, writing. She is concentrated and calm. Once in a while, she looks at a photographthat of her mother, who has died.)
Narrator: This is what Cinderella does every night. She writes in her diary, but it is a letter that she writes. And to whom? Listen ….
Cinderella: “Dear Mother: I spent the whole day waiting for this hour, when I can be alone with you. I know that you are with me always, but during the day, I have to do other things so I am not completely with you, as I like to be. It is seven-thirty in the evening. Father and I have eaten supper. We had pizza, and it was good. But I miss your suppers, you know, the nice soups and the custard with cream. And your smile, I miss your smile. That’s why I have your picture here, so that I will never forget it. Do you eat good suppers in Heaven? I hope so, because sometimes I worry that the food there is not as good as your cooking. I had a good day in school. Do you remember my friend Laura? We are in dance class together, and we are practicing something very, very beautiful—”

(Father enters the room. He is not cold, but he is in a hurry and wants to finish what he has to say quickly. He sits on a chair next to his daughter. Cinderella listens.)
