Synopsis

Cast & Production Needs

Scenes

Time - 48 years ago, 40 years ago, and the present

Place - a doorway at home, a classroom in high school, a guest room at home

These places and times should all exist on stage at the same time, represented simply - a doorframe with no door, a student's desk, perhaps a chair, respectively. Lights should dim and rise as we move from one place and time to the next, rather than going completely on and off, or forcing the actors to freeze in place.

(Casting note: please feel free to mix things up in terms of race)
