Something Tells Me

    by Ed Tasca



  Finalist - Eugene O'Neill Theatre (Waterford, Connecticut, USA), National Playwright's Competition : 2014

Synopsis

Comedic Drama Play Script: 'Something Tells Me' by Ed TascaMarsha lives with her sister Bess, with Marsha providing the income and Bess the house. When Bess invites her ex, Ray, to come and join them temporarily, a tension rises over who may or may not be after Ray.

Marsha is a yoga instructor and meditator who has reached "cosmic consciousness," a dreamlike state that new-agers believe is a higher level of consciousness, where one might discover universal truths. There, Marsha meets a flute player who, like an angel-demon prankster, shows her how intricate and complicated truth-seeking can be, and all the while, he plays with her conflicting motivations around her Bess's happiness with Ray versus her own subconscious and unacknowledged interest in Ray.

The narrative explores the tensions we create between our conscious and subconscious drives, and how, in either case, we manipulate those around us.
