Ophidia

Step 1

Ophidia is based on the poem "Louise Smith" in the Spoon River Anthology and takes place in 1908. I've chosen this particular text because I wanted to explore themes of love, family, and jealousy, and how they entertwine with one another. I'm also tying in elements from the biblical tale of Eve and the Serpent, and in my verison, how it relates to killing - because for the unassuming character of Louise, killing comes easy.

Let me know what you think! I know it's kind of vague, but I don't want to give it all away before I post my script :)
