Do I Look Like Anyone? • a short ZOOM play

by Sheila Rinear

THE PERFECT TWO CHARACTER ZOOM PLAY WITH TWO PERFORMERS WHOSE CHARACTERS NEVER MEET IN PERSON!

Meeting your Birth Mother? Important, but not the most important moment in your life. Getting to see the long-lost child you had to give up, for whatever reason? Important, but… How can these moments compare to the moment when you realize that the parents who have lavished their love and concern over you are not your real mother and father? That is the moment of stunning silence for the child. And for the Birth Mother? The moment when you wish you had not given up your child. What comes between these two moments? Lives lived through wishing/remembering; by hopes and regret; by longing to see… These are the moments that fill this short mono-play. How does it end? That is up to you, because we never see them meet, but we will each bring our own perspective to the events portrayed and their probable, for us, outcome. This is strong, vital theatre that leaves us with necessary questions. For through this play we will have examined our lives a little; relived our dreams, hopes, demons; visited the memories of our own families. This docu-drama is perfect for live or online presentation. Easy to stage or capture as an online event.
