2 M 2 W - Inspired by real life events in Syria, as perpetrated by ISIS, four statues from pre-Islamic Syria fight to stay complete, both physically and spiritually. This is a story of keeping true to yourself in a world that has lost itself.
On a day of remembrance I just happened to write a play about remembering history and the importance of memorialization and art. It wasn't on purpose but a happy accident. Currently ISIS has destroyed several infinitely important works in Palmyra, Syria and elsewhere. As we lose out history so too do we lose what defines us as a culture and as people. Maybe one of these weeks I'll also write a comedy. Who knows.
An experiment for myself to write a 10 minute play, every week, for twelve weeks.
