A pear, a pair of pears, a pair of pears disappeared !

This is a game played on the pronunciation of Noel Coward, who spoke an exaggerated, thespian form of English, such that
disappear, becomes dis-a-pair. The work also talks of absence, and asks how can absence be twinned ? But what can we know
of nothingness to cast such judgments ?
