The play as I envisioned it isn't working. I know I haven't posted many of my brain droppings here (and for good reason), but I have been struggling to put pen to paper. I'm sure the block is entirely my own doing, given how many "rules" I have in my brain as I write. In addition, I just can't figure out this main character: who is she, what she wants, why she does what she does. On the one hand, that's sort of up to the actor, but it's hard to write for a completely passive character.
On the other hand . . .
I had a bit of a revelation about her. Let's just say that I've been taking the story from the wrong POV.
