The Sieve and Other Scenes

The Sieve contains unusual short original monologues valid for junior acting examinations. The material has proved popular, winning entries worldwide in drama festival competitions. Although these monologues were originally written for the 8-14 year age range, they have been used by adult actors for audition and performance pieces.

A collection of scenes aimed at speech and drama festival candidates in the 8-14 year age range and beyond. They provide monologue material with a variety of theatrical applications, and should be useful for drama workshops in schools and colleges. Heather Stephens, Peter Egan.

Now Montag calls the professor. He asks him how many copies of the Bible, Shakespeare, or Plato are left in the country. Montag goes to Faber and shows him the book, which alleviates Faber’s fear of him, and he asks the old man to teach him to understand what he reads. Faber says that Montag does not know the real reason for his unhappiness and is only guessing that it has something to do with books, since they are the only things he knows for sure are gone.

He opened the book to read over Mildred's laughter. Poor Millie, he thought. His hands were tired, the sand was boiling, the sieve was empty. Seated there in the midst of July, without a sound, he felt the tears move down his cheeks. Now as the vacuum-underground rushed him through the dead cellars of town, jolting him, he remembered the terrible logic of that sieve, and he looked down and saw that he was carrying the Bible open. did he leap past the other passengers, screaming in his mind, plunge through the slicing door only in time. He ran on the white tiles up through the tunnels, ignoring the escalators, because he wanted to feel his feet-move, arms swing, lungs clench, unclench, feel his throat go raw with air.

The Sieve of Eratosthenes stops when the square of the number we are testing is greater than the last number on the grid (in our case 100). Since 112 121 and 121 100, when we get to the number 11, we can stop looking. Prime numbers between 1 and 100 with the Sieve of Eratosthenes. We start by placing the numbers from 1 to 100 in a table like this. This way it’s very easy to see the patterns that the multiples of each number make. We highlight the 1, which is not a prime number  . Parents often ask what are the main differences between Smartick and other more traditional, paper based methods (such as Kumon).

The other was small and ugly and belonged to a political party called the Outs. Distraught, Montag runs out of the room and comes back with a book of poetry. He also starts ranting to Faber about how monstrous these women are, which makes him look just a wee bit out of it. Faber pleads with him to stop, but Mrs. Phelps says sure, why not hear some poetry? Mildred, desperate to cover up the situation, explains that every fireman is allowed to bring home one book, simply to prove that books should be burned. Montag clears his throat and begins reading Dover Beach. Montag finds the rest of his book stash, which has diminished: Mildred has begun scattering them throughout the house. As Montag walks back through his house, Mildred is nowhere to be seen.

It was apparent that the man had been reading a book of poetry, but he quickly put it away when Montag approached. However, Montag had assured him he was not looking to get the man in trouble, and they talked for some time. The man, whose name was Faber, had given Montag a card with his phone number and address. Montag returns to his books, and he realizes that the book he stole from the old woman's house is a copy of the Bible. He finds himself wondering if it might very well be the last copy in existence. He knows that if he doesn't turn it in to Beatty, he might be in trouble, so he decides to have a copy made.

A metaphor between Guy Montag’s childhood incident of being challenged by his cousin to fill a sieve with sand for a dime (The more sand you put in, the faster the sand escapes out) and eventually crying in frustration to that of his skimming through the Bible on the train, while trying to subdue the jingle from the advertisement for Denham's. Dentrifice that keeps playing; Guy desperately keeps wishing that he’d remember some of the passages. It is also a subtle way of explaining the world he lives in, without books just living for the moment

Push the cooking liquid through a fine sieve into a clean pan over a medium heat, and whisk in the butter till you have a glossy sauce. ‘The liquid is strained through a grass sieve and served in tiny cups. ‘Takewaka strains the noodles by whipping an acorn-shaped sieve through the air in a dramatic figure-eight, splashing scalding water against a window between the kitchen and the restaurant and drawing.
