I. C. Kyeropas chapter 2 . 12/29/2016
I really enjoyed this. Despite the subject, you did a good job of avoiding cliche. The plot is fairly realistic. For a short play, however, there is a large number of characters. From my experience, doing each character justice in a short play is rather difficult. There are only five main characters, so why not cut the extras out? Save the others only if you plan to expand it. Also, the flashback with the pregnancy test and everything would be difficult for a director to pull of in a way that didn't confuse the audience. It would be better to make just one or two longer flashbacks.


You could change this into a screen play (maybe that's what it was supposed to be? But then why the talk of curtains and props?) That format would better accommodate extra characters, short scenes, and the large space implied at the reunion.

Also good dialogue.
