A Dramedy by Brown Cardwell
6W / 3M / 1 Either
Approximate Playing time:  75 Minutes

Managing official documents proves to be more frustrating than by-the-book Norma ever imagined when she leaves New Jersey to assume her new job in the Eastfork County Court House in Eastfork County, West Virginia.  From Mrs. Parker who’s searching for the son she gave up for adoption (who just could be the 18-year-old heavy-metal biker, Thunderball, who just happens to be looking for his birth mother) to two sisters needing birth certificates and a young mismatched couple applying for a marriage license, complications and aggravations abound as the deeply Southern patrons soon interfere in each other’s lives. The fish tank in the corner serves as the only common source for calming frazzled and frustrated nerves except for Norma who threatens to have the fish out of her office by morning.  But when an old man and his wife get escorted into the office by a pushy realtor intent on pressuring them into selling their family farm, Norma throws herself right into the mix discovering a new felt humanity and developing a touch of southern decorum along the way. Time Files is a character driven play taking place in the 1970’s and is filled with humor, insight and personality well suited for general audiences. $20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.  Professional Theatre Royalties Calculated on Application.
