To Sleep, Perchance
-
one act play - 6f, single set (scripts 3.00 each, performances 22 each)

This play was written for a group of 6 girls who are currently Year 12 Speech and Drama students in South Africa. They had searched the catalogues and the Internet for a play for six girls based, roughly, on an insomnia theme, but could find nothing, so this was the result. It involves six young women at a summer camp. Anna has a deep-rooted personal anguish which she eventually decides to share with Brenda. Their chat attracts girls from other rooms and each explores her own real or imaginary problems, until Anna realises she`s not alone in the world.
