This play comes out of an exercise that I assigned to my students for our class this evening. In solidarity, I felt like I should attempt to tackle the same assignment: a 10-minute play based on a prompt. These characters come from another short play that I wrote about five years ago call "Another Kind of Opera Quiz," and they've continuously popped up in my head following the events of June 12, 2016. I finally heard their voices clearly enough last evening. This is what they had to say.
Julia finally wakes up.
Mark suggests that Cassie make a phone call that could change things quite a bit.
Steve finds a way to begin communicating with Julia.
Claire lets her parents have it.
