"That's the marvelous thing about living in a magic tower, Jim. There's only two people."

Linda and Jim live an extremely modest life on Jim's minimal earnings as a young artist, yet the love they share has the power to transform their tiny, dismal studio apartment into a "magic tower" safe from the harsh realities of the world. One night, however, when Jim leaves to court a self-deemed "Christopher Columbus of modern art" at the Waldorf hotel, Linda remains in the "tower" alone, and the inevitable realities rush in. Though Linda believes that her marriage to Jim has made her completely happy for the first and only time in her life, visits from a caustic landlady and two friends from her former life as a vaudeville actress, combined with Jim's gloomy exhaustion upon his return home, begin to pull the magic tower doggedly down to earth.

A part of the collection The Magic Tower and Other One-Act Plays.


The Magic Tower premiered at the Southern Rep Theatre in New Orleans, LA as a part of the Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival in March 2011 under the direction of Aimee Hayes.
