§ Dramatis Personae Jesse Collins (f), 35, writing teacher; Hannah Chapman (f), 25, student.
§ Synopsis “Jesse teaches a writing class through a community education program, and Hannah is one of her students. A potent and dangerous chemistry exists. Scene one is their discovery and choosing to be together. Scene two is the reality of having to let go.
§ Comment “The beginning and the end of a beautiful love story between two women. Poetry is their vehicle of admission, then a closing page. • ‘Masquerade’ is a unit set production, with no special set or prop requirements. • This stand-alone one act was the seed for an oft-produced full-length play of the same title.”
