§ Dramatis Personae Penny (m), 24, slightly built lead singer of a popular sub-pop band, a recovering heroin addict.; Marci (f), 19, athletic, very warm, outgoing worker in an ice cream parlor.
§ Synopsis “The leader of a rock band hides out in a cabin, trying to escape the realities of life. His girlfriend finds him there and helps him to come to terms with his pain. The two decide to marry.
§ Comment “An inside look at the thoughts of a modern music idol, such as Kurt Cobain. This play only requires one scene, the interior of a sparsely furnished, one room mountain cabin. The only difficulty in production might be the fireplace, but this is an optional piece of scenery.” • Research could include William H.
