I started writing this play to enter into the 10-minute play contest sponsored by Theatre Oxford. But after I started writing it, I felt like what I had to say could not be said in 10 minutes... that there was much more there. Flowers for the Dead is a re-imagining of Streetcar Named Desire, with Stella and Stanley now owners of one of the only bars that stay open before, during and after Hurricane Katrina.
The beginnings of the play is attached below in Word format. There is adult language used, so if that offends you, don't open the document. I'm posting it here now to force myself (perhaps) to finish it now that all of you know about it and to get feedback. I'm still unsure whether it will be a one-act or full play, but I guess I'll just have to figure it out as I go along!
