My one-act play “Antique Roses” was staged August 25-28 at the Old Courthouse Theatre in Concord, NC, in a festival of six ten-minute plays. I adapted the play from my story of the same title, published in Lowestoft Chronicle in June 2014. Spinster Ella Eulalia Finch arrests a rose rustler in her garden at dawn. She invites him to breakfast. They discover that he is the baby she gave up for adoption at age sixteen fifty-five years ago. Or is he?
Andrea and Brian Rassler organized the festival. Andrea is a playwright, director, and high school teacher of drama in Concord. Brian is a director, and he manages the building, a former church. Many thanks to the Rasslers for a fun evening.
