By John O'Brien.
Cast: 2m., 3w. This powerful and moving play concerns an almost desperate struggle to communicate—something to which, in one way or another, every member of your audience can relate. An old man is locked in the garden of his memories, locked there because he can only speak in disjointed syllables. His three daughters who are with him in this moment can't understand what he is getting at, and they are becoming increasingly impatient. Then, in the magic that can only be experienced in the theatre, the old man stands and talks fluently—to us. This is truly an important play that is ideal for contest use. One ext. set. Approximate Running Time: 35 minutes.
