Ida Lupino in the Dark
by Don Nigro
10 Minute Play, Dark Comedy / 3f
A sofa in a darkened room. In this very funny ten minute play, Minnie sits in a darkened room, her face illuminated by the eerie glow of snow on an unseen downstage television set, surrounded by junk assembled by her philandering artist husband, creating in her head a bizarre imaginary film. Minnie's sisters, Sherry and Caitlin, attempting to understand the reasons for Minnie's apparent nervous breakdown, are pulled into her demented old imaginary movie, and discover what finally pushed her over the edge.
