A Short Play by Donald Dewey

Approximate Playing Time: 8 minutes

A young mother, Cindy, on the back porch of her home somewhere in the Midwest, unwinding from an apparently stressful day. She is lost in thought when her husband, Glen, quietly joins her after finally getting their 2-year-old son to sleep. Cindy asks Glen if he remembers a movie where a Father throws his child out a 4th story window. He is aghast at the thought and finds it difficult to let go, even after Cindy says it was a joke. He tries to connect with her and help her find the value in their everyday life. He exits quietly so as not to wake the sleeping baby, but in Cindy’s mind a monster lingers close by. Resigned, she exits inside to join her husband waiting for her in their bedroom. The end of another normal day. $10 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $10 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
