第一幕 (序言)
Scene 1 (Introduction)

人物﹕阿福, 阿香
Characters: Ah Fu, Ah Xiang

時間﹕現代 地點﹕芝加哥

幕起﹐一陣霹靂喇叭響﹐一陣煙霧( 乾冰 ) Ah Fu, Ah Xiang 由天上飄然而下﹐兩人在地上一陣翻滾,而後站起﹐拍拍身上灰塵--------

Fu: Ah Xiang, where are we? It’s so….so cold here. While we were flying, the ground is all covered by the white stuff, like…like cotton.

Xiang: Ah Fu, don’t be silly. How many times do I have to tell you, the white stuff is called Snow, S. N.O. W, snow, not cotton? And here is Chicago.

Fu: OK, S.N.O.W, snow …So. Why are we here in Chicago?

Xiang: Ah Fu, you are so forgetful! Didn’t I tell you that Ms. Vivian Hsei is having a party here tonight with friends from all over the world. So she invited us to present one of the most famous Taiwanese cultures.

Fu: Oh, I know, I know, it’s called BuDAiXi.

Xiang: Excellent! Now you got it. BuDAiXi means Puppet Show. It began in the Ming Dynasty between 1368 and 1644, and came to Taiwan in late Ching Dynasty. Its popularity quickly spread until almost the whole island was saturated with puppet troupes.

Fu: Yeh, Yeh, Taiwan Puppet Show has been one of my favorites since I was little. So, what are we showing today?

Xiang: Our show today is called “Mulan” . Mulan was the name of a Chinese girl who went to fight in her father's place, disguised as a man. Mulan actually made the decision to not lead the life of a traditional Chinese girl and took up arms instead, so her father did not have to fight since he was old. She proved herself in the army quite readily. She and her comrades saved China from the invading Huns.

Fu: Yeh, I think Mulan is the first female who proved that Man and Woman can be equal. She should be the role model for people in RONTA who supports the equality of sexes, I supposed.

Xiang: Exactly, now, Lady and Gentleman! let me present to you the story about a brave female in the world of males…………..“Mulan” , performed by “Taiwan Puppet Troupe at Chicago” .

第 二 幕 ( 代父從軍﹐忠孝兩全 )
Scene 2 (Joining the Army for her Father )

人物﹕花木蘭﹐花父﹐花母
Characters: Mulan, Mulan’s father, Mulan’s mother
時間﹕午後
Time: Afternoon
地點﹕家中
Location: At home
幕啟﹐古箏音樂﹐母在客廳走來走去﹐父在椅上擦寶劍
Curtain rises, zither music playing, Mulan’s mother walks up and down the living room, Mulan’s father is sitting in a chair, wiping a sword

母﹕ ( 唉聲嘆氣 ) 唉﹗
Mother: (sighs) Oh! Alas!

父﹕不要在那兒唉聲嘆氣﹐走來走去的﹐ ( 木蘭進來 )
Father: Don’t be so worried. Don’t walk up and down like that! (Mulan comes in)

母﹕我能不心煩嗎﹖ 你都五十多歲了﹐為什麼皇上還要你到前線打仗﹖ 你年紀那麼大了﹐是該在家中安享晚年才是呀
Mother: How can I not worry? You are so old, why should you go to the front to fight the war? ﹗ You are so old, you should live out your last years here at home!

父﹕誰叫我是退役的軍官呢﹖ 一日為軍﹐終身為軍﹐國家有難需要我﹐我當然赴湯蹈火﹐義不容辭﹐誰叫我們家沒有壯丁呢﹗
Father: I am a retired officer. Once a soldier, always a soldier. When the country needs me, I go and fight for it. It is not the military’s fault. It is our fault that we don’t have a son.

母﹕唉﹐要是木蘭是男孩身就好了﹐他們說﹐要是我們家有男壯丁﹐你就不用去了。
Mother: Oh! If only Mulan were a boy, that would solve our problems. They said that if there were another male in the family, you could be spared.

木蘭﹕ ( 走上前 ) 我去好了﹐爹娘﹐讓我替你去打仗吧﹗
Mulan: (walks to the front) I will go! Father, let me go in your place!

父﹕ ( 楞了一下﹐哈哈大笑 ) 哈哈哈﹐別孩子氣了﹐你是女兒身﹐女人怎麼能當兵呢﹖
Father: (pauses for a moment, then laughs loudly) Ha ha ha! My child, don’t be so childish! You are a woman…how can a woman be a soldier?

木蘭﹕女人有手也有腳﹐為什麼不能當兵﹖ 何況您從小就訓練我劍術和武功﹐我和別的男人一樣﹐身手矯健 , 絕不輸他們。
Mulan: Father, I have performed all the farm chores just like all other boys in the village, why can’t I be soldier as well? Besides, since I was young, you have taught me swordfighting and martial arts. I am the same as any other man. I can keep up with them.

母﹕胡說﹐那是你爹要你練身體﹐可不是要你上戰場﹐打仗用的 . 何況你年紀也差不多該嫁人的時候﹐昨天還有媒婆來提親呢﹗
Mother: Nonsense! Your father wanted you to learn martial arts for your health. He never intended for you to use those skills on the battlefield. Plus, you are coming to the age where it’s time for you to be married. Why, even yesterday the matchmaker was here looking to set you up with a good husband.

木蘭﹕不﹗ 我不要嫁人﹐父親年紀大了﹐讓我替父親去從軍吧﹗ ( 跪下﹐哭 ) 爹﹗ 娘﹗
Mulan: No! I do not want to be married. You are at age, can’t fight anymore! Let me join the army in your place! (She kneels, crying) Father! Mother!

父﹕木蘭 ( 嘆息 ) ﹐不行呀﹐誰叫你不是男兒身呢﹗ 這是命呀 ( 哀傷音樂響起 )
Father: Mulan (sigh), you cannot do this. We didn’t choose for you not to be a man. But this is our fate (sad music plays).

木蘭﹕ ( 哭 ) 爹﹐娘﹐求您們讓我去吧﹗ 我不會有事﹐一定不會辜負您們的﹐我一定會安全回來的﹗
Mulan: (crying) Father, mother! I beg you to let me go for Dad! Nothing will happen to me, I will not disgrace you. I promise you I will come back safely!

父﹕你起來﹐這是不可能的﹐軍隊里都是男人﹐你一個女人家﹐怎麼能和他們在一起﹐沒有人會接受你的﹐你簡直在說夢話﹐你起來﹐快起來。
Father: Stand up! This is impossible, Mulan. The military is all men. You are a woman. How can you be with them? The military won’t accept you. You're talking nonsense. Get up quickly, get up now!

木蘭﹕不﹐你們不讓我去﹐我就不起身 ------
Mulan: No, if you will not let me go, I will not get up ------

母﹕唉﹐木蘭的爹﹐我們進去吧﹐我們進去﹐她就會起來了。
Mother: Oh! Come, father. Let’s go inside. If we go inside, then she will get up.

( 父母進屋﹐木蘭跪地突然起身﹐神情哀傷﹐低頭沉思﹐收拾行李﹐寄信﹐拿起父劍﹑頭盔 及包包﹐離開家﹐依依不捨﹐回首再望一眼﹐然後快步離家 )
(Parents enter the house. Mulan continues to kneel. Suddenly, she gets up, looking sad. Her head is bowed deep in thought. She packs her luggage, writes a letter, and picks up a sword and her father’s helmet. With her bags in hand, she leaves her home. She hesitates and looks back once, then walks quickly away from her house)

母﹕ ( 進來 ) 木蘭﹐吃飯了﹐ ( 四處張望 ) ﹐木蘭 !! 又跑出去﹐ ( 看到桌上信﹐拿起一看﹐大吃一驚 ) ﹐木蘭的爹 !!! 快來呀﹐木蘭跑了﹐木蘭跑了 !!! 木蘭跑了 !!! 她走了。
Mother: (comes in) Mulan, time to eat! (looking around) Mulan!! Did you go out again? (She sees the letter on the table, picks it up. A look of surprise) Oh, Father! Come quickly! Mulan has left! Mulan has left! She’s gone!

父﹕ ( 跑進 ) ﹐什麼﹖ 我 ------ 我的寶劍﹑頭盔﹐軍令﹐都不見了﹐被木蘭拿走了。 ------
Father: (runs in) What? What are you saying? Oh my God -- My…my sword! My helmet! My military conscript! Everything is gone! Mulan has taken them all away! Oh…. No….

母﹕ ( 追到門外 ) 木蘭﹐木蘭﹐你別走啊﹗
Mother: (runs outside) Mulan! Mulan! Don’t go!

父﹕ ( 追到門外 ) 木蘭﹐木蘭 ------( 東找西找木蘭 )
Father: (runs outside) Mulan, Mulan, Mulan ------( searching desperately east and west)

( 父母叫聲淒涼﹐遠方打戰聲鼓聲隆隆 )
(Parents cry out sadly. In the distance, the sound of drums is playing)

第三幕 ( 女扮男裝﹐撲朔迷離 )
Scene 3 (Female dressed as male, A Secret)

人物﹕木蘭﹑軍長﹑李亮﹑軍人一﹑二
Characters: Mulan, military commander, Li Liang, Soldier 1, Soldier 2

時間﹕清晨
Time: early morning

地點﹕蒙古軍中
Location: Amidst the Mongolian Army

幕起 “ 出塞曲 ” 響起﹐軍人跑步操練﹐集會。
Curtain rises. You hear the morning call, soldiers running military drills, meetings being held.

軍長﹕眾弟兄們﹐這次大家應召入伍﹐是為了抵抗匈奴的入侵﹐為了保家衛國﹐大家要做好思想準備﹐把精神武裝起來﹐只准成功﹐不許失敗﹐聽到沒有﹖
Commander: Brothers! Comrades! We have summoned you to the army to resist the invasion of the Huns, and to defend our homeland. We must be prepared to fight to the end or until the victory is ours. Failure is not acceptable! Do you understand?

眾兵﹕是﹐聽到了。
Soldiers: Yes! We understand!

軍長﹕現在開始做伏地挺身三百下﹐胸膛要離開地面三公分﹐一﹐二﹐三 --------------- 九十四。
Commander: Excellent! We will now proceed to do 300 push-ups. Remember! Your chest must be three inches off the ground, one, two, three --------------- 94.

花﹕唉呀﹐我不行了﹐ ( 冒出一聲﹐全身扒下 )
Mulan: Oh! I can’t do this! (her whole body collapses)

軍長﹕花木平﹐你怎麼像隻走扒雞﹐胸膛要離地三公分聽到沒有﹖
Commander: Hua Mu Ping! You act like a limping chicken! Your chest must be three inches off the ground. Continue!

花﹕我﹐我做不了﹐受不了了。
Mulan: I….I can’t do this anymore. I can’t stand it anymore!

軍長﹕區區伏地挺身﹐你就受不了﹐真不像個男人。
Commander: You are only doing easy push-ups, and already, you can’t stand it! You are not like a man!

花﹕我本來就不是個男人嘛。
Mulan: I’m not a man anyway.

軍長﹕什麼﹖ 你不是個男人﹖ 這倒是我第一次聽到一個男人說自己不是男人﹐真是自取其 辱﹐你不是個男人﹐難道你是個女人﹖
Commander: What? What did you say? You are not a man? I have never heard a man saying that he's not a man. You disgraced yourself! Hmm, if you are not a man, are you a woman?

花﹕ ( 趕快站起來 ) 不﹐不﹐我當然是個男人﹐不是女人﹐我是說 .... 我娘常說我身體不太好﹐像女人一樣。
Mulan: (stands up quickly) No, no! Of course I am a man, not a woman! I was just referring to what my mom used to say that I was not physically fit…more like a woman.

軍長﹕好了﹐你別說我娘我娘的﹐你娘在千里之外﹐別再娘娘腔了﹐男子漢大丈夫﹐要有男人氣概﹐天下沒有吃不了的苦﹐來﹐大家繼續﹐一百零一﹐一百零二 -----
Commander: Okey, Stop saying “my mother this … & ..my mother that”. Your mother is thousands miles away. You are a man & you must act like a man. Nothing in the world is too hard for a man to take and conquer. Understand? Comrades, let us continue. 101, 102…

軍長﹕喂﹐花木平﹐你要去哪兒﹖
Commander: Hey! Hua Mu Ping! Where are you going?

花﹕我﹐我需要上大號﹐上 ---- 上大號。
Mulan: I…I need to use the rest room.

軍長﹕大號﹖ 你是說上大號﹖ 我看你真是身體有毛病﹐每次大家就地解決﹐你就說要躲起來上大號﹐你吃的比人家少﹐拉的比人家多﹐難怪你長不高。
Commander: Use the rest room again? What is wrong with you? Soldiers don’t go to rest room. They finish their business right there - standing by the ditch. Something is really wrong with your body. You eat so little and excrete so frequently. No wonder you are so weak and thin.

李亮﹕報告軍長﹐花木平從小就身體比別人差﹐請多原諒。
Li Liang: With respect, Commander, Hua Mu Ping’s physical condition has always been feable than others. Please be easy on him.

軍長﹕你是他什麼人啊﹐老替他說話。
Commander: Who are you to him? Why are you always speaking for him?

李亮﹕報告軍長﹐我是花木平小時候的鄰居﹗
Liang: Commader, I was Hua Mu Ping’s childhood neighbor!

軍長﹕小時候鄰居﹖ 那我問你﹐花木平在家也不洗澡﹖
Commander: Childhood neighbor? Then I ask you, did Hua Mu Ping bathe at home?

李亮﹕這 ....... 哦﹐對﹐小時候他最不喜歡洗澡了﹗
Liang: Well ....... uh, yes! When he was a child, he hated bathing.

軍長﹕難怪﹐每次大夥脫光衣服洗大堂澡﹐花木平一個人死也不肯洗。 Commander: No wonder when soldiers go bathing, Hua Mu Ping always resists to join.

花﹕報告長官﹐我是用乾洗 ------ 乾洗的啦。 啦------.
Mulan: Commander, I use… dry-cleaning! Yeah, dry cleaning! Uh…

軍長﹕乾洗﹖
Commander: Dry Cleaning?

李亮﹕對﹐對﹐就是那種用毛巾全身這樣擦﹐那樣擦﹐意思一樣﹐濕洗乾洗都是洗﹐反正不臭就好了﹐還可替軍隊省水呢﹗
Li Liang: Yes, yes! That’s what you rub yourself with a damp towel, like this…, rub up and down and left and right.It has the same effect basically. Wet cleaning, dry cleaning, it’s all cleaning! As long as you don’t smell…plus, it saves the army water!

軍長﹕真拿你沒辦法。 好﹐集合了 ( 吹笛子 )
Commander: You’re hopeless. Okay. Attention ! Fall-in ! Right Face! March! Left – Right - Left – right – left – right ... (trumpets play)

眾人排隊齊下 , 幕下
Crowd gathers around, curtain falls.

Mulan & all other soliders : Let’s give a good fight! Let’s terminate them! Let’s destroy them! Now they are retreating, let’s go after them! Let’s wipe them out!(Voices get quieter, soldiers below)

夜晚音樂響起 , 花獨坐在石頭上﹐夜晚青蛙叫聲
Music plays at night. Mulan is sitting alone in stone night, listening to the sounds of the frogs

李亮﹕ ( 走來 ) 啊﹗ 原來你在這兒﹐我到處找不到你。
Liang: (comes in) Ah! Here you are! I have been looking for you everywhere.

花﹕李兄﹐我在這兒坐一會兒﹐有急事嗎﹖
Mulan: Brother Li, I’m resting here.Is there anything urgent?

李﹕沒什麼急事﹐上面傳令下來﹐說我們今天表現優異﹐立下大功﹐可能有賞﹐又說匈奴仍在附近﹐神差鬼沒﹐要我們特別加強戒備。
Lee: There is nothing urgent. Hey, the words from the top said we fought great today and we may get awards and decorations. Howeve, the Barbarian Huns are still around, and that we should still remain vigilant.

花﹕唉﹗ 咱們守衛邊疆﹐轉眼已經十二年﹐這兵荒馬亂﹐何時能了﹖
Mulan: Ah! (Sign) We have been guarding the border for almost twelve years. When will this war end? When is the Hunns going to retreat and surrender?

李亮﹕是呀﹐到下月底就整整十二年了。
Liang: Yes, at the end of next month it will have been a full twelve years.

花﹕不知家人是否都安好﹐路途如許遙遠﹐﹐連個家書都得等個一年半載﹐才會收得到 , 真是烽火連三月﹐家書抵萬金 ( 嘆氣 ) ﹐但願父母都還健在 ------
Mulan: I do not even know if my family is still well. The road to my village is long and far. Even sending a letter home takes a year or so. Getting a letter from home is worth more than gold…(sigh). I hope my parents are still alive.

李亮﹕木平﹐你別擔心﹐有生死悠關大事﹐上級自會通知我們﹐別胡思亂想了。
Liang: Mu Ping, do not worry. They will notify us if there is any emergency or important thing happen in our families such as any death in the family. You don’t need to worry so much about it.

花﹕謝謝李兄﹐要不是有你不棄照顧﹐鼎力相助﹐我花木平就沒有今天。 尤其剛入伍時﹐你處處替我說話﹐怕我被欺負﹐小弟真是銘記於心﹐沒齒難忘。
Mulan: Thank you, Brother Li. You know, I wouldn’t be where I am today without your caring and help. I remember when I just joined the army, you were always speaking for me, trying to protect me, afraid that I was being bullied. You are truly my big brother at heart, and I will never forget you.

李亮﹕木平 , 別說得傷感兮兮的﹐像女人一般。 俗話說﹕' 酒逢知己千杯少﹐話不投機三句多 酒逢知己千杯少, 咱們出生入死﹐患難與共﹐這也是一種難得的緣份。 '. 這十多年來﹐你武藝進步神速﹐已經不可同日而語﹐再也沒人敢欺負你啦﹗
Liang: Mu Ping, don’t be so sentimental You begin talking like a woman. It’s no big deal, I just feel we are compatible and we care for each other. We have gone so much together. We have gone through fire, sharing weal and woe, this is such a rare fate. In these past ten years or so, you have made rapid progress in your martial arts skills.no one dare bully you any more!

花﹕那兒的話﹐李兄才是武藝高超﹐萬夫莫敵﹐小弟甘拜下風﹐ ( 作打恭作揖狀 )
Mulan: Brother Li, you will always be the master and I am a student. nothing can change that (for playing Gong Zuo Yi-shaped)

李亮﹕別客氣了﹐對了﹐我這麼晚來找你﹐可是有目的的﹗
Liang: Don’t mention it. Oh yeah! I came to look for you for a reason!

花﹕什麼﹖
Mulan: What is it?

李亮﹕轉過身去﹐我數一二三 ........ 你再轉過來﹐ ( 花轉過身去 )
Liang: It’s a surprise. Turn around…after I count to three, you can turn around again. (Mulan turns around)

李亮﹕一﹐二﹐三
Liang: One….Two….Three..

花﹕ ( 轉過來 ) 這是什麼﹖
Mulan: (turns around) What is this?

李亮﹕ ( 拿出一碗豬腳麵線 ) 是我特別為你準備的豬腳麵線﹐要好好為你祝壽的。
Liang: (takes out a bowl of pork knuckle noodles) I made these especially for you…pork knuckle noodles! Let’s celebrate your birthday together!

花﹕哇﹐豬腳麵線﹗ 我的生日﹖ 我都忘了。
Flower: Wow! Pork knuckle noodles! It’s my birthday? I completely forgot! My mom always gives me this on my birthday. She says it symbolizes longelity and good fortune!

李亮﹕恭祝花兄福如東海﹐壽比南山。
Liang: Happy Birthday, Mu Ping! I wish for you prosperous life as everlasting as the South Mountain and fortune as endless as the East Sea

花﹕哦﹗多謝李兄關愛﹐ ( 深情地看他 ) 小弟真是卻之不恭﹐受之有愧了。
Mulan: Oh! Thank you so much for your kindness, My big brother! (gives him an affectionate look)

李亮﹕那﹐我們就到那邊去吃吧﹗
Liang Li: Well then, let’s go over there to eat!

Father: Over the years, we have heard a lot about General Hua’s great achievements. You are now a very popular household hero.

( 李亮進來﹐大家未察覺 )
(Liang comes in, nobody notices)

母親﹕只是十多年來﹐你是怎麼隱藏你是女兒身呢﹖ 難道沒有人看得出來嗎﹖
Mother: Yet, in these ten years or so, how have you been able to hide the fact that you were a woman? Didn’t anyone ever notice?

木蘭﹕沒有﹐我很小心﹐沒有人知道我是女的。
Mulan: No, I was very careful. No one knew I was a woman.

李亮﹕ ( 寶劍掉到地上﹐發出噹噹大響 ) 你 ------ 你是女兒身﹖
Liang: (sword falls to the ground, it makes a large clanging noise) You ------ you are a woman?

木蘭﹕ ( 回頭一看﹐大吃一驚 ) 李兄﹐你怎麼來了﹖

李亮﹕我﹐我﹐我特來登門拜訪。 花兄﹐你說你是女兒身﹖ 我是不是聽錯了﹖ 你不是花木平
Liang: I… I…I was just coming to visit. Mu Ping, did you say you are a woman? Did I hear you wrong? Are you not Hua Mu Ping?

父親﹕這位是李將軍吧﹖
Father: Ah, is this is the honorable General Li?

李亮﹕在下李亮拜見伯父大人﹗
Li Liang: It is Li Liang at your service.

父親﹕我常聽到不少您的偉大攻業﹐您真是了不起的英雄﹗ 我的女兒花木蘭不叫花木平﹐她是替我去從軍的。
Father: I have heard much about your grand achievement on this campaign. You really are a great hero to us! My daughter is really Mu Lan. Mu Ping is not her real name. She joined the army for me, to save her aging father from the grueling military duty..

母親﹕ ( 跪在李將軍前面 ) 李將軍﹐請饒了木蘭吧﹐她不是存心欺騙你們大家﹐她是一片孝心﹐怕她父親年老體弱﹐所以不顧我們的反對﹐就從軍去了。
Mother: (kneeling in front of General Lee) General Li, please spare Mulan. She did not intentionally try to deceive you all. She was acting from her heart, she was afraid for her old father’s life. Despite our objections, she went to join the army.

李亮﹕大娘﹐您快起來﹐我 .... 我 .... 我太高興了﹐這真是天大的好消息﹗ 我做夢也沒想到我所仰慕的花大將軍﹐原來是個女兒身。
Li Liang: Dar-Liang, please get up. I .... I .... I'm so happy, this is really excellent news! I never could have thought that the General Hua who I admire so much would actually be a woman!

木蘭﹕李兄﹐您﹐您高興﹖
Mulan: Brother Li, you…you are happy about this?

李亮﹕我當然高興﹐這下子你我不但是同袍兄弟﹐現在還可當紅粉知己。 這天下有這麼好的事情嗎﹖ 我李亮真是三生有幸了。
Liang: Sure, of course I am happy! I’m elated! From now on, we are not only colleagues and comrades, but we can also be boy friend and girl friend! I could not imagine anything better than this! How lucky I am.

母親﹕我去準備晚飯﹐李將軍就留下來用餐吧﹗
