An Acute Sense Of Being
AuthorHAILS, Christopher - Other Plays by this Author - Contact Author
SynopsisAs their marriage is teetering on the edge of the abyss, Marcia and Neil are invited to a meet and greet evening with new neighbours, Peter and Friday. Marcia is shocked to find their Green, Eco-friendly arrivals living out an unhealthy, obscene and degrading co-habitation. Peter is using Friday as his bondswoman, as he leads a bohemian lifestyle. She is disgusted with Peter and attempts to persuade Friday to leave. Neil reveals he's giving up his career to start a new life in a commune, created by Peter, on a Pacific atoll, with or without Marcia. All is not as it seems, as Marcia storms out, leaving Neil to contemplate his future. As Neil and Peter discuss the situation, the Police arrive and arrest Peter, leaving Neil and Friday to explain the goings on. Does Marcia really know the truth? This is a quirky comedy drama with rich helpings of pathos a bathos.

ProductionThe play lends itself to a boxed set as the audience should be able to absorb the atmosphere of Peter's living room. However scenic suggestive elements would suffice. There are comedic moments and serious conflicts which push the play along. I've kept the stage directions to a minimum for greater flexibility.
