Remembrance Day (by Tony Layton)

    by Tony Layton


Drama Play Script: 'Remembrance Day' by Tony LaytonLeanora, the central character, was placed in the nursing home by her daughter, Ruth six months ago. She has a strong personality and is out of place in this refined atmosphere. She has made herself unpopular and now moves are afoot to get her to leave.

She is terminally ill, and heavy doses of Morphine are clearly responsible for her sometimes irrational behaviour. However, in her fading world, there is still much lucidity.

Leanora seeks support from her family but there is a deep rift between her, and her daughter Ruth, and this has also affected her relationship with her granddaughter, Julie. Forced into a corner by all around her, Leanora decides it is time to reveal the 'truth' behind the rift.

The printed script is only available in the anthology 'Dreams And Delusions (Vol 1)' together with 'The Brown Felt Hat' and 'The Café Sirocco'
