EXT. PARK IN YASNAYA POLYANA - DUSK
A steady rain drums on tree branches. The woods echo with numerous distant calls.
Rustle of twigs as someone approaches through the bushes.
DR. MAKOVITSKY (Off Screen)
Mama!—Mama, answer me!
A moan, a sob.
I heard something. She is here somewhere.—There!
Sasha (26, a stout, homely girl), followed by Varya (a pretty brunette, 30) and Dr. Makovitsky (a puny man, 55), bend over a prostrate form (Sonya, 67).
Mama! What on earth are you doing?
I’m dying in a ditch according to your father’s wishes.
