Third annual playwriting festival!

Hey! Guess what time it is?!

New Visions’ play writing festival is back!

 

This year’s theme is Facing Reality.

All of us have had to make hard choices in life. We’ve been faced with options and had to face difficult realities. Sometimes, it becomes difficult to even distinguish what is real and what’s not. All we are left with is facing our own realities.

depression and severe panic attacks. Kaia believes that life is

all about suffering, pain and constant disappointment.

2.      Michelle (early/mid thirties)

appear narcissistic, but in reality she has a really low self-

esteem that she hides behind her talkativeness, intense make-up and

extravagant close. When it comes to her actual feelings, she

hides them well; she uses avoidance as her main defensive mechanism, making her appear condescending. Michelle believes that ignoring anything that brings discomfort and pain is the way to get rid of them.

He is Kaia’s and Michelle’s father. He is a chronic severe

alcoholic who feels constant guilt and anger. He is a

dysfunctional father and his wife divorced him. He has intense

feels sorry for himself and believes that everyone hates him and

wants him dead.

2.       Faith: “Woman” in her mid-late twenties. A bit nerdy, but way more aware of the real world than Will. She is kind, likes stories and likes to make jokes.
