Woman and Scarecrow

Front Cover
Dramatists Play Service, Inc., 2010 - Drama - 51 pages
"In Woman and Sacrecrow the title characters, 'in exile from the best of themselves', trade litanies of recriminations as they mourn their capacity to love." "This deathbed drama pitches old friends and battle-weary foes against each other in a sustained howl against 'the first law. This world's job is to take everything from you. Yours is not to let it'. It hinges on Woman's last request, to return west where she might find 'some kind of miracle', that moment of grace in which 'anything can happen'." --Book Jacket.
