Carousel, Act 2

I made this meal for T for lunch today.  It is based on the musical, Carousel, by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II.

  • playing cards > rectangular-shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with candy decorations (for the 10 of stars and the Ace of flowers)
  • money > tossed salad of romaine lettuce (for bills) and carrots (for coins)

Synopsis of Act 2

Everyone reminisces about the clambake.  Julie sees Billy trying to sneak away with Jigger and, trying to stop him, feels the knife hidden under his shirt.  She begs him to give it to her, but he refuses and leaves to commit the robbery.

While they wait, Jigger and Billy gamble with cards.  They stake their shares of the anticipated robbery spoils.  They don't know that Mr. Bascombe already has deposited the mill's money.

The robbery fails.  Mr. Bascombe pulls a gun on Billy while Jigger escapes.  Billy accidentally falls on his knife.  Julie arrives just in time to see Billy die.  Julie strokes his hair, finally able to tell him that she loves him.
