Jars – drama about love between two women

What’s a kiss between friends? For Heely it is everything. Evidence that her feelings for Shyne weren’t a daydream and vice versa. Evidence that their childhood adventures together were as real as the fireflies Heely wants to spend forever after catching, with Shyne at her side… and their dog – as it should be. And evidence that a southern wife’s story can have its roots in the most unlikely soils, roots that ought to decay now that Shyne has her husband aka ‘him,’ roots that are thriving into a forbidden flower as Shyne still ‘visits’ with her ‘old childhood friend’ and a grown flower that basks in the radiating light of the love between two women who were not meant to fall in love. So is the one act drama about love between two women telling the story of Shyne and Heely, called Jars. It is an act of passion, torment and mostly, of hope.

From one to the other, paths had crossed, blood was spilled and they would forever be lovers.

A FIELD OF GLORY – AMERICAN CIVIL WAR DRAMA

This American Civil War drama concerns a Mississippi mother, Rosalia talking with her son, John a Confederate soldier, who unexpectedly returns from the front to see her. He comes burning with questions and a desire to unburden himself about the meaning and the brutality of war as well as unanswered questions about his life before he left. The play follows a long conversation between the two of them. Rosalia owns her own estate with its slaves and John tries to convince her to improve their lives and to give them an education. She loves her son, and she agrees to do what he asks of her for them.

About a third of the way through the play the reader/audience knows (or thinks they know) how it will end but the playwright cleverly diverts the dialogue into a discussion of the morality and economics of slavery and the politics and cost of the war. This is so well done that the denouement is a shock.

This beautifully written play runs for 75 minutes with no interval and with only 2 actors so it will challenge the best players.
