Playwright Portrait, Daisy Foote, Excerpt from Bhutan


The Playwright Daisy Foote, 2009

Bhutan

FRANCES: She has all these boxes filled with pictures and each box is
labeled with a different country's name. She can take a picture...any
picture and remember everything about it...the day it was taken...who
was there...what they were talking about...what they ate or
drank...where they went next. And after she's shown me the last
picture, she always says the same thing, "I think a brew is in order."
And while I put out the cups and saucers, Nora, Nora makes the tea.

(We stay with Warren, Frances and Mary for a few more beats and then
the lights start to fade...BLACKOUT.)
