Growing Pains

Front Cover
Samuel French, 1990 - Drama - 28 pages
Frank and Mary Shaw have a child after twelve years of interesting but unfulfilled marriage. Through their poignant soliloquies, and scenes replayed from Andrew's, their son's, formative years, it is revealed how he becomes the centre of their separate worlds. Without wanting to leave Mary, it suits Frank to have a longrunning affair. When Mary finds out she smothers her own hurt so that Andrew remains emotionally secure. At seventeen, Andrew is fatally injured in a motorcycle accident. The world has ended for Mary and Frank, unless they can come together and draw strength and comfort from each other. Sensitively written and beautifully characterized, this play is easily staged and the minor roles doubled as required.
