Fun and games

Full-length play (two acts)

Is free will just another delusion of grandeur? In Fun and Games, Amy and her brother Arthur are yanked from their quiet, overeducated dropout lives when Arthur's ex-girlfriend needs to be bailed out of jail. The cross-country journey challenges their stifling relationship and, as Melissa escapes with a bounty hunter on her trail, all four fight for control over their own lives. Guilt and innocence, freedom and responsibility, and reality itself are called into question. It's the sort of trip that makes you realize what life really is... until someone loses an eye.

The play received its first developmental reading with Studio 42 of New York, NY as part of their Trials and Errors series (under the title And Twenty-Five for the Insult). It then received an extensive workshop with Little Hibiscus Productions, also of New York, NY, produced by Sara Towber and directed by Scott C. Embler. The revised version received a reading with Oberon Theatre Ensemble, directed by Walter Brandes.
