Value in shortcomings…


A lot of re-shaping is taking place with a few scenes that I’m revising in a new full length play, and I’m re-focusing first on a relationship between a father and daughter–and the need to create more of an organic feel to the scene. The scene has become much more rich in terms of not really pitting music and art together but thematically interconnecting a father’s need to return to music, something he had abandoned up until later in life and the daughter’s need to find her place again in the world through art. Much of this I’m finding is based on characters’ introspections–their not recognizing the need for introspection; yet they find what they are looking for and need, more so, through introspection–something they never believed they were privy to. I’m also working on synthesizing a monologue that’s new for me in terms of the female character, the daughter finding a more solidifying place in the world again without worrying about what people think. It’s not a search in having the characters’ play off one another, for example music and art–although both are art; it’s about two people, insofar, finding their own paths yet recognizing the shortcomings they have and the value in those shortcoming and discovering inadvertently how they find their place in their world.
