In the Rest Room at RosenbloomsBook - 2008
4f and 9 extras (can be doubled) / Comedy / Interior This contemporary comedy reveals the hopes, dreams and fears of three elderly ladies who spark their lonely lives by meeting daily in the rest room lounge of an outdated downtown department store, and the crazy/touching events that occur the day one of them is supposedly threatened. There s Myrah, with a fighting spirit that totters into the absurd; Violet, a leftover from the days of elegance; and Winifred, a wisp of a woman who wanders in and out of reality. A steady stream of bizarre events occur as the ladies seek to protect Winifred from being taken away by her sister Clare, leading to a blockade of the rest room and a final triumph over those who would threaten their fragile freedom. Winner of the Southeastern Theatre Conference New Play Award "The women are wonderful characters... the play does] an excellent job of balancing humor against the basically pathetic lives of the three main characters." - Minneapolis Tribune "A very funny play of character and situations. You can't get much better than that writingwise: check out William Shakespeare..." - Appleton Post Crescent "Visit to Rosenblooms is worth the trip. Quirky characters, punchy lines and light hearted humor." - Driftwood News, Canada "Hilarious one minute and surpisingly touching the next." - Gallery Theatre, California "Maybe the best comedy is the one that makes you cry. This Ludmilla Bollow script is an almost perfect example of the classic dramatic unities of time and place." - Neenah Post Crescent "It's comedy, but has very poignant moments in it as well." - Go-Erie.com"
