THE MIRROR – A COLLECTION OF TEN MINUTE PLAYS

Intended as an evening of dinner theatre or for a charity performance, this collection of ten minute plays combines six stories which are linked by a common theme: A mirror. Old, tarnished and apparently priceless. We follow the journey of the mirror through the evening. From the burglary where the burglar steals it for his wife, to the thrift shop where the wife (who never really liked it anyway) dumped it, to the purchase of the mirror by a rich old lady, certain of its value and antiquity. The old lady passes away and then the mirror gets bought from her estate by a young girl. We then see the mirror in the girl’s apartment, in a shop front window at a travel agent and finally getting sold by two homeless people who are convinced they’ve just pulled off the biggest scam of their lives.

Bar the short introductory piece, each play stands well on its own. rare collection by best selling and award winning American playwright Jean Blasiar. This play is available both in digital and printed format.
