Hope \'n Mercy
Hope 'n Mercy
Co-Winner: Boston Theatre Works Unbound: A Festival of New Play

Co-Winner: World Chamber Theatre Festival, Pulse Ensemble Theatre, New York City

Winner: George R. Kernodle Playwriting Contest
By Kent R. Brown.

Cast: 1m., 2w., multiple roles. Marcia Hope has just been invited by Bradley Jenkins to witness his execution for the murder of Marcia's granddaughter, Julene, who appears in Marcia's mind asking her to forgive Bradley for his crime. In a series of reenactments, we discover how Julene was seduced by Bradley's dark energies; how they drove the back roads of the South and far West robbing homes and terrorizing lonely widows. And how Marcia—unwittingly?—was instrumental in Bradley's capture and Julene's death. But even at the moment of Bradley's death, Marcia refuses to bestow upon Bradley the mercy he so desperately craves. In revenge, Julene and Bradley appear together in Marcia's mind to haunt her into forgiveness which may be a long time in coming. Winner of the George R. Kernodle Playwriting Contest, the Pulse Ensemble Theatre Chamber Theatre Festival and the Boston Theatre Works Festival of New Plays. Area staging w/ props. Approximate Running Time: 45 minutes.
