A young woman seeking to be understood, although she can barely understand her own existence; a young man looking for North, with no purpose or reason; an old man rebelling against meaninglessness and chaos; a dead apple tree in the middle of a living room; a never-ending poem about a limbless puppet – these are the driving forces behind “Replay”, a one-act comic tragedy.
Are authors fully in control of their characters? Do they always have the power to decide how a character lives, what a character says, how a character dies? Or are there, perhaps, instances when characters take on lives of their own – decide for themselves what words need to be spoken, how their lives should proceed or end? These questions lay the groundwork for “Working Title”, a play told through the eyes of an author struggling with writer’s block.
