Stevens Point, Wisconsin


Time: Contemporary                                

Situation: WHITE  finds two characters, Joseph and Owen, locked in a doorless, windowless white room with no food, water, or contact with the outside world. This piece is a section from the monologue that opens the play as Joseph recounts an encounter he had in a bathroom before he was kidnapped, to a sleeping Owen, to ease his fear.

Subject Matter: Curiosity, Daydreaming, Coping, Bathroom Etiquette, Music, Pink Floyd

Note from Playwright: The play WHITE is an exploration of how a male relationship can progress in the absence of society and the pressures of being observed. It ends as a commentary on the value we place on ourselves and our lives, what will we do when we think no one's watching?
