Playwright Portrait, Thomas Bradshaw, 2010

Playwright Portrait, Thomas Bradshaw, Excerpt from Cleansed,


Excerpt from Cleansed

Grandmother: Yes. Your mother should never have married that nigger. It’s been nothing but problems since she met him. When you were a child she came crying to me about the fact that kids were making fun of you. What did she expect? Everyone could see that coming a mile away. But what really upset me was the fact that she had the nerve to blame it on your classmates and their families! She called them ignorant and racist! I have lived in this town for forty-six years and I can assure you that the people in this community are neither ignorant or racist! They’re just good Christians. And all good Christians know that the mixing of races is a sin. Your mother and father are the ignorant ones.
Lauraul: Do you think that I’m a sin?
Grandmother: Goes and Hugs Lauraul
Oh no honey. Your parent’s sins are not your fault. I’m just sorry that they didn’t consider your feelings before they had you. It’s not fair that you’ve been treated this way all these years. And it makes me love you even more to know that you’re rejecting the culture and the blood that your father infected you with.
Lauraul: Thank you Grandma. I’m so glad that someone understands.
Grandmother: But you know that you must fight hard everyday to resist your tainted blood. It’s very powerful, and can sneak up on you when you least expect it. So I’m giving you something to help you to resist it.

Playwright Portrait, Rinne Groff, Excerpt from Orange Lemon Egg Canary, 2008

Orange Lemon Egg Canary

the prologue.

"Everybody loves magic. Everybody loves to be fooled, tricked. Everybody loves to be caught with their pants down. Everybody loves to be cheated and misled. Everybody loves it when someone lies to them. Especially when they watch that certain someone very closely and they’re trying to catch him in his lie, but he’s quick with the sleight of hand, too quick; and a girl is left feeling both stupid and angry, and third of all, empty. People love that."
