“Through performance art-style language and image, Lorraine and her mother reveal the horrid secret that they have contained in an old magician’s box and that has been keeping them contained inside their city apartment. No longer able to endure each other or their seclusion, the two struggle and compete for a way out”—Kimberly Prichard plays, http://www.netspace.org/~icwp/pritchardplays.html, accessed August 15, 2006.
“Kimberly Pritchard holds an M.F.A. in Playwriting from The University of Georgia and is pursuing a Ph.D. in Theatre in New York. Her work has been read, produced, or recognized by Southeastern Theatre Conference (SETC), Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival (KC/ACTF) Region IV, Twentieth Century Playwrights Festival, the Hippodrome State Theatre, Clemson University, WOW Café’s Reality Show, The University of London, and Hawaii International Conference of Arts and Humanities. 'The Box,' a one-act play, is published in the avant-garde international literary journal Collages & Bricolages. Kim has served as a past managing editor of the Journal of American Drama and Theatre and has taught playwriting and script analysis at University of Georgia and Marymount Manhattan College. A native of Miami, Florida, Kim has studied in England, Italy, and Spain and currently resides in New York City. Kimberly Pritchard’s writing incorporates techniques from various methods of image-making: visual arts, film, music and sound. Her sense of storytelling has been strongly conditioned by the literary tradition of magical realism, the worlds of her plays often hovering between a common reality and one of miracles. Nearly all of her plays empower female characters by resurrecting and redefining images from cultural histories that have traditionally rendered women weak.”—Kimberly Prichard, http://www.netspace.org/~icwp/pritchard.html, accessed August 16, 2006.
