A One-Act Play by David-Matthew Barnes
Hayden and Persephone Caulwell have been married for twenty-two years. Constantly referred to as “the perfect couple,” they have found themselves hiding the discord in their marriage from their family and friends. After a dinner party, they engage in a volatile confrontation and years of affairs, secrets, and emotions begin to surface. Realizing their marriage has ended, husband and wife lash out at each other until the dining room – and their lives – are left in shards. This one-act play was inspired equally by the short story 'Bliss' by Katherine Mansfield and the Greek myth of Persephone. The script features roles for one womand and one man. Hour Glass
