WANDA, DAISY AND THE GREAT RAPTURE - Wanda

Brooklyn, New York

PLAY DESCRIPTION

It’s a sticky hot summer in the swamplands of Pawley’s Island, South Carolina. Step-sisters Wanda and Daisy struggle to get by as the people they love disappear; Wanda’s mother has recently died, and Daisy’s father's mysterious illness worsens, and his obsession with an impending rapture intensifies. The girls try to repair their fractured relationship by summoning dark memories in hopes of finding a little light. A magical story about how we hold onto family, the past and ourselves while we seek better lives, and wait patiently as the Great Rapture hails us--or doesn’t.

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Contemporary                             

Situation: Wanda is twenty-one years old. She lives in Pawley's Island, SC in a trailer with her step-father, Bud, who is suffering from early-onset Alzheimer's, and her troubled step-sister, Daisy. Wanda's mother has recently committed suicide, leaving Wanda to shoulder the very adult burdens of taking care of the family, both financially, and emotionally. Wanda is seeking comfort and peace in the world as she deals with the death of her mother, the wild antics of her step-sister, and the slow decay of her step-father. She is newly religious, and is constantly defending her new views to Daisy, who thinks the church is not the answer to her problems. In this speech, Wanda describes how she and Bud started going to church together.

Subject Matter: Alzheimer’s, Caretaker, Religion, Christianity, Born Again, Peace, Redemption, Miracles, Magic
