Visions & Voices: New Play Reading Series - SWING SET and IN A WORD
June 14 - SWING SET by Keith Jefferds and IN A WORD by Lauren Yee, two one-act plays.
SWING SET -
When Tucker and his wife Helen find his mother dead at home, he becomes indecisive and cannot move. Rooted in place, not able to budge from just inside the threshold, Tucker's awareness swings between the clamorous demands of the present and a blitz of dizzying memories. Watching his life unfold before him, Tucker is witness to events long past and memories better left behind.
in a word -
Two years have passed since Fiona's eight-year-old son mysteriously vanished. As Fiona goes back over the events she remembers leading up to that fateful day, logic buckles and language breaks. Will she uncover the truth and what happens if she does? A lyrical, absurdist journey on how to get over, get around, and get through what haunts you.
