A Two-Act Drama by
Robert Leland Taylor
2W /2M
Approximate Playing time: 75 Minutes

This hauntingly beautiful story captures the antagonistic and lonely life within the confining walls of a sparse Kentucky farmhouse where rose-covered wallpaper conceals the Clavor family secrets. When Eileen’s Uncle Gayner is accused of strangling a woman to death, she struggles with his guilt or innocence despite her sincere affection for the troubled and fragile man. Her mother, Myra, loves her brother and would do anything to protect him, even hide the medallion that Gayner entrusted to her care; a valuable antique that he claims he bought from the murdered woman. Eileen’s drunken father, Leonard, hates Gayner. He shoots the family dog for not barking at people he says are stealing his corn and egging his house because of the shame Gayner brought on the family. The dynamics take an increasingly negative toll on Myra’s mental state and she wanders off in a thunderstorm only to be found camped at the Greyhound bus station down the road. Leonard’s hatred is so great that even though another woman is murdered by strangulation while Gayner sits in his jail cell, he turns the medallion over to the police. The tragic consequences of this revengeful act take the final toll on Myra who stops communicating altogether. Eileen faces contending forever with her mother’s mental deterioration and her father’s harsh inability to express kindness or love or choosing once and for all to save herself by finally leaving home. $20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
