The piano lesson (part of MA portfolio)

HUSBAND
Maria! You’re starting again.

WOMAN
Wait!

HUSBAND
What?

WOMAN
Don’t you think he is a little bit . . . Different?

HUSBAND
No, he looks the same to me.

WOMAN
I don’t think he’s alright.

HUSBAND
You mean he looks sick?

WOMAN
Oh, no no – blimey! Just that he looks strange.

HUSBAND
Why don’t you ask him if he feels OK? I’m calling him.

WOMAN
Don’t! It’s alright. Maybe I am wrong.

HUSBAND
Of course you do. (Sits on the sofa. Looks at his wife, tries to concentrate on the newspaper but he is not able to). So what is it.

WOMAN (stares at the window)
What?
HUSBAND
What’s going on with David?

WOMAN
It’s me, that’s all.

HUSBAND
Does it have to do with that bloke in the park? Does it?

(WOMAN sighs.)

HUSBAND
Has he done something to him? What is it? What is it?

WOMAN
Yes, but it’s not important.

HUSBAND
What? Are you messing about again or what? Are you trying to mess with my head?

WOMAN
Listen. That guy and David are together.

HUSBAND
What?

WOMAN
I saw him kissing David before he came in.

HUSBAND
Really! That’s…

WOMAN
Shocking, isn’t it?

HUSBAND
I should’ve known… Well in fact I think I suspected he might be…

WOMAN
It’s seems it is true. I knew it.

HUSBAND
How did you?

WOMAN
I can’t tell you – I knew it.

HUSBAND
Why didn’t you tell me?

WOMAN
It is not relevant.

HUSBAND
No, no, I’m not saying that it is wrong with David… But I should have…

WOMAN
I wasn’t sure.

HUSBAND
But you had a feeling.

WOMAN
Could be anything.

HUSBAND
Yes… he could’ve told us.

WOMAN
Huh.

HUSBAND
What?

WOMAN
Nothing.

HUSBAND
Oh, dear. You’re not thinking I’ve got any problem with – oh, God.

WOMAN
No, but.

HUSBAND
I’m not saying it’s wrong, don’t misunderstand me. You know my cousin, he’s been living with his boyfriend for ages… They may get married next year… But, you know, I’d have been happier if he had told us… Do you know what I mean? Do you think it’s alright?
