[Engineer Holm's house]

Draft of a play about three siblings who pretend to perform a burial in Engineer Holm's garden.

From the text

They play a peculiar game: a burial. There is a lot of whispering. They have the feeling that neither mother nor father would approve of this game. But it is so different, so exciting.

Anna: Olle should play Göran.

Olle: No, I don't want to play dead.

Karin: As you're the youngest, you should play the one who dies. We'll be the mother and father burying you. 

Olle: That sounds horrifying.

Anna: Oh, it's no big deal.
