Dramatis Personae Molly (f), a young visitor; Diane (f), her sister

Synopsis "Molly arrives at Diane's apartment in New York City late one winter's night from the Midwest. She and their mother suspect Diane is in danger. She is. A fundamentalist man she met in New York wants to kill her because she aborted his child. He raped her after she rejected him. With dark humor Diane desperately tries to face the conflicts caused by her own fundamentalist roots and beliefs. She needs Molly to get out of the way because she is plotting her own revenge on the man. Molly, refusing to leave, is doing everything she can to bring Diane back home and to the fold. The man is outside down the street. Waiting."

Comment Premiered by Love Creek Productions in New York City, spring, 1996. This script, although a 90-minute drama, has no intermission, and an appropriate shorter play can pair with it to comprise a bill. The roles require physical actors.

Themes abortion, rape, religion, revenge, sexual abuse, stalking.
