We move along the side of the grave and take in the faces

(still not knowing who is dead).

We find JOHN SHELBY with his wife ESME. Esme is holding a

sleeping baby, one year old

Then we find JIMMY JESUS with his mixed race son (ISIAH, aged

seventeen). Then we pass CURLY and CHARLIE STRONG. Then

10 CONT'D:

Next to him is FINN SHELBY. Finn has grown and is now

thirteen and looks older than his years, with his hair

slicked back with Brilliantine. He has become quite handsome

in a tough way.

Finn leans forward to peer into the grave as the coffin is

lowered. A hand pulls him back into place.

The hand belongs to TOMMY SHELBY. He is at the end of the

line, dressed sharply in all black with a black tie.

The coffin reaches the bottom of the grave and the priest

nods to Tommy. Who steps up. The communists behind the red

banners give him hard stares. Tommy (of course) couldn’t give

a damn.


I promised my friend Freddy Thorne

that I would say a few words over

his grave if he should pass before


Arthur proclaims loudly...



(Already we might feel Arthur has become quite odd since we

last met him. Tommy ignores.)


I made the promise when we were in

France. Fighting for the King.

The communists give Tommy hard stares which he absorbs.


But war didn’t take Freddy.

Pestilence took him. But Freddy

passed on his spirit and soul to a

new generation before he was

cruelly taken.

Tommy gestures at Karl Thorne. Ada has no expression. Tommy

takes out a piece of paper and it blows in the wind
