Jessica\'s Will
Jessica's Will
Winner: Third One-Act Playwriting Contest, Theatre in the Raw, Vancouver B.C.
By Kent R. Brown

Cast: 3w. It is the end of summer and Jessica is going in for tests. Michelle, in her 20s, has come to assist in putting her high-spirited grandmother's affairs in order. "Just shut the suitcase," she tells Michelle as they pack for the trip to the hospital, "and close the latch. That's what I suspect they'll do…open me up, see that everything is a damn mess, and simply close the latch." But Jessica's will has little to do with who gets the antique china. In unravelling a complex tapestry of lifelong dreams and deceptions, Jessica and Michelle bequeath to each other intimate, and sometimes painful, gifts of love. Intertwined throughout the scenes is a young girl who, both real and imagined, enters their world and revitalizes their mutual love of life. Area staging. Approximate Running Time: 30 minutes.
