Here's a pdf of the working script for Believe in Me.

It kind of surprised me, since it just came pouring out. I hadn't written a two-person piece before, and was worried about being confined to just 2 characters.

I had planned a completely different play, about a couple of police women, but ended up going with 14 year olds instead.

The opening lines, which concern cutting the hair of an American Girl doll, are inspired by an incident in the life of emilya . The rest, not so much!

The funny thing was that the play just before mine also mentioned American Girl dolls - twice!

I suppose play-writing is an adult form of playing with dolls.

You move the players about
and give them words to laugh or cry or shout.
