Pretty Pieces

A powerful One Act Play about madness

Authored by Mr Charles G. Robertson

Pretty Pieces is a powerful one act play about a young man and a young woman who are trapped on the fringes of society in a run-down apartment. They are brother and sister and something horrible happened to them a long time ago. Because of what happened to them, their relationship is doomed. The sister is trying to fit the pieces of their lives together, to figure out what happened to them, to figure out why they are the way that they are. She finds some old pictures and an old report card but these clues are not enough for her to figure out the true horror of their past. The young man tries to forget but he can't. He copes by using drugs and selling his body. The young woman copes by building a psychological and emotional cage which traps her in the apartment. To add fuel to the emotional fire, they are being evicted. The young man has a chance at happiness. He thinks he has found a way out. He is going to leave his sister and move in with an older man. The young woman falls apart when she hears this. She is going to make sure that he can't escape her, that he will never be able to leave.
