Plays Maori and Pakeha, Vol. 2 free pdf Excerpt from Plays Maori and Pakeha, Vol. 2 Scene: A New Zealand forest-trees, ferns, undergrowth, etc. In the foreground crouches a slave keeping careful look-out. He peers through the trees to the right- then moves to rear and to left, listening, watching. He turns quickly as a rustling sound from right preludes the entry of a tall chief, wearing dog-skin mat, head-band and huia feather, sandals, etc., and bearing in his hand a greenstone mere. His face is intricately tattooed. He stands for a moment gazing back in direction from which he has come, then turns sharply to slave. Chief: What have you seen? Slave: Nothing, O Te Rangi. No one stirs. Te Rangi: Continue your watch. Have eyes for the sleeping-house, no less than the forest. (Slave moves to rear of stage. Throughout the ensuing scene, he keeps careful guard, frequently returning to right of stage. The Chief walks thoughtfully to centre of stage. A rustling sound from right precedes the entry of a handsome Maori woman, dressed as a slave. She looks anxiously back, as though fearful of pursuers- then with outstretched arms, and uttering a low, moaning sound, she runs to the Chief. They press noses in the hongi.) Te Rangi (gently disengaging himself): Be comforted!(He moves thoughtfully to front of stage. The woman follows him.) Te Rangi (turning to her): Uira, there is no time to lose. Did any see you leave? Uira: No. There is nothing to fear. All sleep heavily within doors. (Turning to slave, and speaking fretfully) Why does he keep watching? I tell you, this forest is empty of men. Te Rangi: The slave does my bidding. Had we kept night-eyes in the past, it would have prospered us better. Now tell me, how fare you, my wife? Uira (tonelessly): There is nothing to complain of. The enemy chief uses me well. Te Rangi: What of our children? Uira: They are well. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
