The Dinner Arnaud

To my family and friends, to my uncle our host



If you all quieten down, I must first drink a toast

For all you've done since my return

For all the kindness that you've shown

I want to say these days have been the happiest I've known

Now I think at last, we've a gift for you

(he hugs Bertrande's stomach)

Sometime in the spring, you should have a new Martin

(the villagers cheer, Arnaud and Bertrande embrace)

Villager 1

Hey Martin, you dirty bastard, not like you to be so quick

Villager 2

What's the secret?

Three Crones

Seven years on army rations did the trick!

Pierre

All right that's enough! It's late, go home! I want to talk to Martin.

Mme de Rols

What's the matter, Pierre?

Pierre

André, take your wife home.

(the villagers leave)

Guillaume, not a word!

Guillaume

Of course not, Pierre

(he leaves)

Pierre

Is it true what I hear, you've turned from our faith,

you're a Protestant now?

Mme de Rols

What are you talking about??

Pierre (to Bertrande)

And have you done the same, tell me is this the truth

Mme de Rols

She would never do that!

Pierre

And the child that you bear is a Protestant heir?

Arnaud

Yes. I'm a Protestant now

Mme de Rols

Bertrande is this true??

Arnaud

This is my faith

Bertrande

I showed him how a God can love

He understood

Arnaud

At last I found another way

Mme de Rols

Is this how you repay our love?

Bertrande

Mother, please, understand!

Mme de Rols

You're no daughter of mine!

Pierre

If one word of this gets out

They'll hang you up and watch you break

Not one word of this gets out

I swear they'll burn you at the stake

Mme de Rols (overlapping with Pierre)

No, not a word, do you hear me not a word

Not a single word (...)

Both

Silence, perfect silence, always silence only silence just,

silence, total silence, simply silence now as silence must

(Guillaume appears)

Guillaume

And so the treachery begins

A secret deal to save their skins

A secret's well and good except it's only secret when it's kept!

(he runs into the streets)

Lubin! Galoche!

Villager

What Guillaume, what?
