In this interesting script that can be played either as a drama, a comedy or a mixture of both, Barbara, an eighty nine year old woman who is dying, is now living with her daughter, son in law and teenage granddaughter. Barbara is very old and is beginning to show signs of dementia. Stewart has lost his job and is stuck at home having to look after Barbara. Lindsey, his wife is frazzled and frustrated and also desperately worried about her mother.

The family is desperate to find a solution to the huge mountain of debt that they have found themselves in since Stewart lost his job. Tensions run high and having to care for Barbara seems to just make Stewart’s life more stressful than ever.

PIGEONS – A TWO-ACT DRAMA PLAY

“Pigeons” is a two-act drama about a man named Lester, in his thirties, who is about to inherit a fortune left to him by his dead grandmother on the condition  that he is married before he is thirty five years old. Unfortunately, Lester is a recluse who dropped out of high school in his senior year after failing a course in English. He is completely obsessed with breeding a champion homing pigeon. He spends the better part of his days on the roof of his Philadelphia home with his pigeons.  Lester is supported by his sister, Sistine, a Catholic nun who supports him by bringing food everyday as otherwise he just wouldn’t cope.
Sistine decides to take the matter of Lester being married into her own hands. She brings home a single young woman who works as a clerk at the convent.

Lester has a problem in that he hasn’t kissed a female for years. We learn as the play progresses what caused this trauma in Lester’s life. The young woman’s mission is directed with the nun’s encouragement to get Lester over his phobia and become his wife.

The two-act drama play gets convoluted when a boyhood friend of Lester and his sister arrive in the second act. As the play progresses, we learn the Machiavellian reasons for the nun’s motivations.

“Pigeons,” was professionally produced at the “New World Theater” in Miami Beach a few years ago. It was also produced at several theaters in Baltimore/Annapolis as well as several dinner theaters.
