Every relationship is comprised of an ongoing series of scenes. Scenes of discovery, affection, intimacy — possibly love. Unfortunately, there are also sometimes scenes of disaffection, alienation, anger, shutting off, and loss.
There are scenes that define a relationship, for better or worse. They often come at completely unexpected moments. They all have inherent drama, whether it be a quiet tension or explosive accusations. In Falling Into Macy, I want to bring to life some of these relationship-defining scenes in the lives of two (and possibly three) couples from the perspective of the one thing that needs to be there to make a relationship work, and what happens when it is allowed to wither and die.
So, here are 15 short scenes from the relationships of two (and possibly three) couples. One, Catherine and Joseph, who find their union in trouble. The other, Alison and Joe, wavering between friendship . . . and something much more.
And then there’s Macy, who has a vested interest in the fate of these relationships. What that interest is we may or may not discover by play’s end. But I hope it will provide you, the audience, with a stimulating and — yes — entertaining journey.
