Word:Play archiveSix 15-minute plays, from six playwrights: The Right to Choose: Mother wants a baby. Not just any baby. The right baby. The right type. A mother’s right to choose. But is it what she really wants? The Miracle Worker: Two lovers burn a candle for their lost daughter in the woods. But will they find solace, or only more pain? The Escape: Three snapshots of three brothers at different stages of their lives. From Greek to Shakespeare to Beckett, an ambitious verse play with a metaphysical slant. The Crow's Wake: Dan has been away in England for twelve years and has come back to the border to run the farm now his wife is dead. Rose, his daughter, thinks he needs to learn a few lessons about how things have changed in ‘modern Ireland’. The Boys in the Tower: A mother and father struggle to accept the loss of their youngest son. Two interweaving monologues explore grief and memory. November: Every year, the Judd family stand by a motorway shrine. Why do they come and who will dare break the cycle?
