File 4: Poppi ‘n Ray and the Case of the Vanishing Van Gogh

INTERIOR GRANNY EVE’S KITCHEN

GRANNY EVE (with her ear to the 1930’s radio): MC? Are you there? The coast is clear. (Pause as Granny listens to MC.) Oh no! Really? That’s tragic!!!

RAY (walking up to Granny): What’s up? What’s so tragic, Grans?

GRANNY EVE (sobbing): I can’t believe it. Not Starry Night…I just heard news that the colors in Van Gogh’s The Starry Night are fading away. The entire painting could vanish! So, so, so, tragic!

RAY: Is that like an important painting or something?

GRANNY EVE: It’s a priceless piece of art! The stars are almost faded completely, and next will come the sky, and then, well, then, POOF! It will be gone…vanished! (pause) Luckily they are having a rock concert to raise awareness of the Vanishing Van Gogh.

POPPI: So they can fix the painting? Restore the colors?

GRANNY EVE: No, it’s just so we can be aware of the tragedy.

POPPI: Awareness, smareness! Hmmmph. Don’t worry, Granny Eve, we can fix the painting. We’ll go to the concert and figure this all out.

RAY: We will?
