A Narrator will read the numbers and text aloud startingwith this statement:

  1. Three spotlighted women stand stage center on an other- wise dark stage. Two of them elegantly dressed in black, the third naked. All are white-haired, in their fifties or older.
  2. Behind them on the wall the face in close-up of a still older woman wearing a tiara, in her seventies at least, gradually emerges — a photograph being projected on a screen. The image starts large and gets larger.
  3. The three women separate and reveal seated behind them the older woman of the photograph, who slowly rises. She stands there regally — but no tiara — wearing a silk full- length robe. The stage lights come up and the three women walk off stage.
