Tarrying Expectations


Step 1:  Selection

I've chosen to adapt Sherwood Anderson's "Winesburg, Ohio," focusing on the Alice Hindman vignette.  Maiden turned spinster, deep yearning and a thwarted desire for love drive her story.  I find her isolation, and the paralyzing notion of waiting for life to begin, both tragic and compelling.  That, of course, and her oddities, in particular, Alice's imaginary lovers and the way she hides in her delusions.

Step 2:  Screenplay

Available on request.

Step 3:  Logline

Mourning her lost love, a jilted woman clings to her sanity, finding intimacy in delusion.
