GRISCHA (NO DIALOGUES)
(In Russia. Father enters the living room with a box full of peaches)
FATHER: Look what I brought you!. Come and see this!.
(Mother, Vania, Serguei, Volodia, Vasilia, enter)
MOTHER: What’s the emergency!.
VANIA, SERGUEI, VOLODIA, AND VASILIA: What is it?. What do you have in that box?.
FATHER: Look what your uncle sent you!.
(Father opens the big box. Vania, Serguei, Volodia, and Vasilia look inside the box)
VANIA: Red apples!.
(Serguei touches the fruit)
SERGUEI: I don’t think they are apples. Touch them, they are so soft!.
(Vania, Serguei, Volodia, and Vasilia touch the fruit)
VANIA, SERGUEI, VOLODIA, AND VASILIA: You’re right!. They feel like velvet.
FATHER: They are peaches.
VANIA, SERGUEI, VOLODIA, AND VASILIA: Peaches?. What are peaches?.
FATHER: Your uncle grew them in his greenhouse. Peaches only grow in warm climate countries.
VOLODIA: What is a greenhouse?.
FATHER: A greenhouse is a structure with glass or plastic roof and walls. Your uncle told me that the sun heats the plants, and during winter he uses a stove to maintain the temperature warm.
MOTHER: I would like to eat one.
(Father gives Mother the biggest peach)
FATHER: The biggest one is for you.
(Father gives a peach to each to Vania, Serguei, Volodia, and Vasilia)
FATHER: Taste them, and then tell me what you think.
(Vania, Serguei, Volodia, and Vasilia take a peach and leave)
(Father and his family are having dinner)
FATHER: So, tell me. What do you think about the fruit?.
SERGUEI: It was delicious!. I want to plant the seed, because I want to have a peach tree!.
FATHER: Maybe when you grow up, you will be a farmer.
VANIA: It was so delicious that I ate it all. My mom gave me half of hers, but I threw away the seed.
FATHER: What about you, Vasilia?.
VASILIA: When Vania threw away the seed, I picked it up and I smashed it. It was really hard!. Then I ate something it had inside which tasted like nuts, but it was bitter.
FATHER: What did you do with your peach?.
VASILIA: I sold it.
FATHER: Ha, ha, ha, you sold it?. Then when you grow up you will be a merchant. What about you Volodia?. Did you like it?.
VOLODIA: I don’t know.
FATHER: What do you mean you don’t know?. Didn’t you eat it?.
VOLODIA: I gave it to Grischa. He is sick. When I showed him the peach, he just looked at it. I gave it to him, but he didn’t want to take it, so I just left it beside his bed, and I left the room.
FATHER: (hugs Volodia) Oh, God will reward you for what you did for your brother.
