The Walking Shadow
by Hà Quốc Thịnh
* Monologue *
My family and I go to the beach. When we arrive there, I don’t see my family. I feel so sad. I am scared too. I ask some people to help me find my family. I ask people so many times, but they say they can’t help me. They don’t know where my family is.
Nobody can help me. I walk. I walk; and I walk again. I walk with no stop. I walk for three days. I am so tired. I am exhausted. I don’t close my eyes for three days and three nights in a row. I am so sleepy. I keep walking. I know I can’t and I shouldn’t stop walking until I find my family. Yes, I won’t stop walking until I find my mom and dad.
Now I am here. I don’t know how, but I am here. I feel like I am dead, but I know I am still alive, and I know that I didn’t stop walking for the last three days.
Please don’t ask me how I made it here. I can’t answer you. All I know is that I am here now. I am here on this stage, walking and talking in the darkness. Look at my face!
Talking and walking! Talking to you, to myself, or to nobody. I don’t know. I really don’t know. All I know is that I am still walking and walking like a desperate shadow. Oh, have a heart! Give me some help!
Ladies and gentlemen! Now I am here in front of you, and I am still walking. I am so thirsty. I am so hungry; I could eat a horse. I will keep walking until I find them. Please help me find my mom and dad. I’m so sad. Help me close my eyes and go to bed.
