The Little Theater of Alexandria 1991 National One-Act Playwriting Competition
This poignant play by the author of Tell Me Another Story, Sing Me a Song; A Little Something for the Ducks; A Scent of Honeysuckle and A Bag of Green Apples is the story of two women, Margaret and Jessie, who have come to Jessie's childhood home to put it up for sale. While Margaret goes to find a real estate agent, Jessie has conversations with herself as a girl and with her dead father and her mother.
"A warmly human play. One is left with a sense that although choices made in life are not made without loss, that which is lost can in some ways be recaptured." - Pentagram
"Delightful." - The Review
White Room of My Remembering was first produced in Alexandria on December 6, 1991 in a evening of one-act plays, and was directed by Diane Burakow. The opening night was taped by Channel 38, Falls Church, Virginia and aired on educational television.
