Out and Away

Below is an excerpt from my play Out and Away (hey, that rhymed).

Rose, an elderly woman, has lost her husband, her son, and her will to live. One night, a mysterious man comes to her door. He knows impossible things about Rose and tells her he has come to “take her away.”

This man could be death; this man could be a figment of Rose’s troubled imagination. In the end, it doesn’t really matter. What matters is that Rose, as a result of talking to this man, discovers that she might have something to live for.

The attached scene was performed by two professional Dublin-based actors in 2015. A complete honor.
