Characters & Setting
Samuel: An abusive husband, pile of ashes
Loureen: Abused wife
Florence: Friend and neighbor to Loureen
When a housewife comes to the end of her rope with her abusive husband, she doesn't expect him to spontaneously combust after damning him to hell. Now she has a pile of ashes on the floor, and a life to reclaim.
Moral Of The Play
What goes around comes around- Samuel beats his wife and he ends up dying for it when she wishes him dead.
She attended Brown and Yale University and has worked for Amnesty International, HBO and is often commissioned for plays by off Broadway theaters such as South Coast Repertory, Capital Repertory, Yale Repertory and Second Stage Theater.
She has several memberships to organizations such as the Manhattan Theater Club, New Dramatists, and the New York Foundation for the Arts.
Be careful what we wish for- Sometimes we get just what we ask for, or in Loureen's case scream for at the top of our lungs
Setting: Kitchen over a period of ten minutes
