Face to Face
by Julie Sharp
A witty and unusual modern take on the story of The Prodigal Son where the Son leaves his Garden home with its joyous and loving extended family for the contrasting cynical, grasping and amoral inhabitants of the City.
In this exuberant piece, written for a cast of all ages. most of the engaging and enthusiastic characters inhabiting the Garden could be played by younger members of a group, while the decadent and suave citizens of the City, who appear as masked aristocrats, would probably be best suited for more adult actors.
A full length play, lasting about 75 minute, there are 21 named parts which could be performed by a group of about 12.
