The Widow - Updated

Adaptation: "Julia Miller" from Edgar Lee Masters Spoon River Anthology.

Other Influences: "Green Eyes" a one act play by Tennessee Williams.

Themes: Grief, suicide, life, pregnancy, marriage, love.

2nd Draft:

3rd Draft:

Changes include:

Added - some more detail to hint at what's going on in the beginning, a little more direction ('though I'm intentionally leaving room for the actors to interpret things on their own) in the beginning while breaking up some of it towards the end, some names.

I'm still debating if the title is right.

Logline: A widow pregnant with her dead husband’s child resents the circumstances he has left her in.  She lashes out at her new husband who is unaware that the child is not his.
