Kate Aksonova. Mice and bat.


    Stage is glade. Black Bat is inside bushes on the corner. Bat is squeezing.


    BAT: It is morning. I am lost. I never find my way back home. Mother told me to be on time. I just want to see the sun. It is so shiny. And now I lost. What happen to me at day? I can’t help myself. Oh, my wings. They stuck. I am unhappy.

    Bat squeaks.

    On stage comes Green Mouse, she is happy.


    GREEN MOUSE: Day is very nice. Sun is lovely.

    GREEN MOUSE: I see you.


    BAT: Help me.

    GREEN MOUSE: Who are you? You are black and big. Are you a cat?

    BAT: No. I’m bat.

    GREEN MOUSE: Bat or cat?

    BAT: Bat. Did you hear about mice who could fly?

    GREEN MOUSE: I heard this story from my mother many times.

    BAT: It’s me.

    GREEN MOUSE: Can you fly?

    BAT: Yes.

    GREEN MOUSE: Do you always have wings?

    BAT: As I remember.

    GREEN MOUSE: I wish I could fly.

    BAT: I also can’t now.


    BAT: Mother told me not to fly in the morning. And I want to see sun. And here I stuck in bushes.

    GREEN MOUSE: Sun is wonderful!

    BAT: Yes.

    GREEN MOUSE: I try to help you.

    BAT: Please!

    Green Mouse pulls few twigs on self.


    GREEN MOUSE: Can you fly now?

    BAT: No. Wings in twigs.
