Mirrors and Memories — play

a two act play by Linda Britt

(An evening of five short plays inspired by the paintings of Norman Rockwell)

(Perfect for Professional, Amateur, College/University groups)

A somewhat contemporary take on Americans and American life, inspired by five classic Norman Rockwell paintings: “Girl At The Mirror”, “Thanksgiving”, “Playbill”, “The Interloper”, and “Attic Memories”. The playwright has an uncanny knack for seeing inside the people in the paintings and pulling out contemporary issues, struggles, and observations, that could very well have been in the mind of the painting’s subjects, and which most certainly live today in our minds, as well as being from the mind, brush and heart of one of America’s greatest artists. These five short plays are alternately funny, touching and truthful, in an emotional sense, and serve to remind us of the good things that make us the most human.
