Nora
The room is empty.
And silent.
Silent and empty for a while.
Until …
There’s a knock at the door.
Then silence.
No one comes to answer it.
Another knock-knock.
Nothing.
And another knock at the door.
From offstage we hear a voice call out—
ANNE MARIE
Hold on! I’m coming!
(And then silence, until …
An older woman, Anne Marie, enters the room slowly—she’s got a little hobble.
She makes it to the door.
Unlocks it.
Opens it.
In the doorway: Nora.
Long pause.
Then …)
Oh Nora!
NORA
Hello Anne Marie.
ANNE MARIE
Nora I can’t believe it’s you!
NORA
… It’s good to see you.
ANNE MARIE
It’s really you. Nora Nora Nora—
It’s been so long
NORA
it has.
ANNE MARIE
… You got a little fatter.
You got older and you got a little—
NORA
well you hit a certain age—
ANNE MARIE
Don’t I know it.
Come in come here give me a hug it’s so good to see you.
How are you. Come in there’s some chairs you can take a
chair and sit in it
NORA
don’t worry about me, I’m fine
ANNE MARIE
I’m going to sit I’m going to sit my knees aren’t good
However I look on the outside—
inside it’s all a lot worse. And how are your insides—?
NORA
They’re good, Anne Marie.
ANNE MARIE
That’s good.
Mine, I don’t know, it’s the stomach that
feels like it’s gone all wrong,
but you look good and if your insides are all in order
then I’ll take your word for it—
I just—I just can’t believe it’s really you
NORA
well
ANNE MARIE
I didn’t know—no idea—if you’d ever come back around.
That first month, and those first six months—the first year or two or three even—there was the thought that maybe you’d show up, come back around, but then the more time that passed—you didn’t even write, no letters, nothing—
Fifteen years, fifteen years, could’ve thought you’d gone off and died—
I for the record never thought you were dead—
a lot of people thought you were dead,
other people, not Torvald and the kids of course, but a lot of people think you’re dead.
NORA
… okay
ANNE MARIE
and I look at your clothes and it looks like you’re definitely not destitute
NORA
nope, not at all
ANNE MARIE
it looks like the opposite of destitute
NORA
I’ve done very well.
ANNE MARIE
That’s just so nice. I’m happy to hear that, I never wanted bad things to happen to you …
(Nora takes in her surroundings, moving her eyes around a room she hasn’t seen in fifteen years.)
NORA
The house is—
ANNE MARIE
yes—?
NORA
it’s so …
ANNE MARIE
different?
NORA
from what I remembered
ANNE MARIE
same house
NORA
less stuff
ANNE MARIE
you forget things
NORA
there was a cuckoo clock used to be...
