CARMEN (Extended Version)

Author Diana Howie
Houston, Texas

 

PLAY DESCRIPTION

Time: Contemporary

Situation: "Carmen" is a one-person short play that takes about ten minutes to perform. Despite a disastrous night last night, Carmen applies her morning’s make-up, readying herself to be noticed.

Subject Matter: Appearance, Identity, Immigrant Experience, Need to be Noticed, Loneliness

Note from Playwright: I was struck by a naturally beautiful woman I knew who absolutely transformed herself every morning into someone who looked totally different than the woman who went to bed at night. I asked her why.
