Susan Swayne and the Bewildered Bride
Meet Susan Swayne and the Society of Lady Detectives: aside from their interest in swordplay, they're all perfectly proper Victorian women. Or are they? When the distraught Isabelle Fontaine-Kite insists that a member of the S.O.L.D. is actually her missing husband, Eric, Susan Swayne is on the case!
Originally submitted to BWBTC's inaugural Joining Sword &; Pen competition in 2005, Swayne began as a one act, and held the seeds of a story that we wanted to see grow. The script went through our New Plays Development Program in 2009, becoming a full-length in the process. And now, we're delighted to present the world premiere!
