You are hereEmerald City
Author: S.P. Miskowski
Four women have a love/hate relationship with the ever-changing city of Seattle. Each is looking for something, in this urban tale lightly inspired by the Wizard of Oz.
I am not adhering to the plot of the classic children's tale, just letting the story inform the aspirations of my characters:
- Dot owns a home but questions its value in a rapidly changing landscape
- Scarlett is writing a dissertation on Duwamish folk tales and makes a startling discovery
- Tina is desperate for romantic love
- Lillian is trying to overcome a crippling fear of being alone
In terms of form, the play combines direct address and dialogue scenes. The theme is change and development, not as a positive or negative but as a fact of human life.
