PURGATORY - Arielle

Author Emily Bice
Los Angeles, California

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Contemporary                                

Situation: Arielle is trapped in Purgatory, a place devoid of emotion or feeling, with her partner Charlie. As Arielle experiences an awakening, she must fight her way out by embracing the unknown and accepting that she doesn't know what will happen after she leaves Purgatory. It is a timeless space, a single room, everything is grey and bland.

Subject Matter: Depression, Death, War, Identity, Acceptance, Denial, Religion

Note from Playwright: I wrote this place to represent the depression and grief in a literal sense - Purgatory, a land devoid of feeling or emotion. I wanted to externalize the struggle to break out of this void.
