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.
