Three short plays for the stage from realism to symbolism to absurdism.
In “The Salt of the Earth,” the family has just returned from their father’s funeral. The siblings come together to divide the old man’s few possessions. But the ghost each one brings soon destroys the façade of personal illusions.
In “The Other Boxes,” a disturbed young woman looks for love in all the wrong places. Did her father abuse her? Did her stepbrother reject her? Do the things in the boxes love her?
In “The Last Ritual of Levi Smith,” a government agent of a post-apocalyptic society—where almost everything is illegal—comes to evaluate a citizen’s claim for aid. But the citizen has plans of his own.
Amateur and professional theatre groups around the country, from community playhouses to Off-Off-Broadway have produced these plays.
The plays contain adult situations and language. Not suitable for high schools.
