THE LOCAL’S SPOT – Absurd Comedy

Written and Directed by Bruce Olive

The locals’ spot is an idyllic, pristine spot where the local can relax and contemplate in peace. However, today is different. Today the ‘spot’ has been gate crashed by the crazy newcomer and the glamorous tourist, both of whom have their own agendas for this beautiful piece of paradise. The theme for this play could be, ‘You destroy what you love’.

The three characters are female, all 40 plus in age.
The local – Reserved, solemn
The newcomer – Animated, crazy
The tourist – Glamorous, pretentious

How far would you go to secure your future happiness? When is murder not murder?

Coming out of an abusive marriage, Claire Williams returns to her country home to care for her dying father, Alf. She hasn’t seen him for 16 years, after she ran away from home because of sexual abuse. She hopes to heal the rift between herself and her father before it’s too late. On her return she meets her teenage sweetheart, Adam, who is now widowed. Is there a future for them, or will murder come between them?

After Claire left town, he eventually married Linda Evans, who died young. Adam has been a widower for two years, and is pleasantly surprised to meet Claire when she returns to town.
Alf Johnson – Mid 60s+. Alf is a bitter old man, who has lived alone on his farm for the past 18 years. He is dying of cancer, but is fiercely independent and resents the idea that he needs live in care.
