MAZURKA


MAZURKA EBOOK

 

The story of Mazurka  takes place in an English settlement of the New World

during the 19th Century. It has a hero and a heroine. The working out of their

relationship is complicated by this particular situation they find themselves in.

Other characters are varied and shown against the environment of the new land.

Mazurka is not a drama. It has a lightness that borders on the comical.

SETTING: It is the interior of a large boatshed built into a fringe of bush at the edge of a beach of coarse sand and stones. Outside, a storm rages. Normally, the shed houses two small boats, a pile of fishing nets, a trestle table and a few stacked old wooden chairs. At the moment there is a busy human content as half a dozen colonial volunteers do their best to deal with casualties from boats come to grief in the churned-up waters of the bay. All the while, indigenous Maori apply themselves fearlessly to rescuing passengers from rocks and surf.

TIME: No clock strikes the hour. The shed is lit by four lanterns. The inadequate window shows darkness outside. Some of those present know that supper awaits them at home; others will have been lucky enough to have eaten before they came out; two or three may never eat again. That is what time it is.

 

Now the space is clear of people. There is a banging at the door. It's Frank Butler, young reporter on the Gazette, late to a story – not really his fault, you know, that he's late. Inside the boathouse, he relights his lantern, muttering as he does...

 

"The boss said the boathouse. He'll hang, draw and quarter me if I miss this story…"

 

He is joined by Michael Cummins, friend, who sees himself as an entrepreneur.
