working you into a lather


– 16 August 2015 –

Happy Sunday!

This week’s prompt comes from a play I’ve not yet seen or read. Its concept, or at least its vehicle (device, what-have-you) blows me away.

In the Transport Group/Jack Cummings III‘s Three Days To See, seven actresses play Helen Keller. There may well be other characters and actors in the work, but SEVEN actresses play Helen Keller.

I can’t ignore the gender parityesque implications of this cast, but that’s not why it blows me away.

And I can’t know what you’ll do with this idea, whether you’d go with the seven ages of woman or seven of the multiple intelligences or, like Three Days To See, excerpts from the works of your character.

But wow.
