Drama. By Jennifer Fell Hayes.
Cast: 12 to 15 women. Are you looking for a contemporary script that will challenge your best actresses? The theatrical concept of this play is exciting. Seven members of the cast play Anne—as a young mother, as a woman of 40 returning to school, as a child, as a bride, and as a grandmother. But the 28 scenes do not proceed chronologically. Scenes between Anne and her family and friends cut across the decades, hopping backward and forward. Later, three pairs of Annes perform simultaneously. Finally, we experience the powerful and emotional impact of Anne at 87, encircled and sustained by her younger selves. Bare stage. Approximate running time: 1 hour, 30 minutes.
