SYNOPSIS: Colin and Mya, an elderly married couple, sit on a park bench reminiscing about their life together. While Colin seems forgetful on a few subjects, there is never any doubt of his devotion to his wife. Yet it is up to Mya to gently steer her husband into the most important memory of all, the one he has chosen to forget. This ten-minute play is about the depth of feeling between a husband and wife, and is a sad, sweet tale about what it means to accept a great loss.

"This is a beautiful love story and will be a perfect choice for a mature duo. My duo team chose to use Irish accents for the characters. Don't let this scare you away from this piece. In preparation, we researched how to speak with an Irish accent and it was very effective. If you have a duo who is hardworking, committed, and believable, this will be a perfect piece. One aspect we loved is that it is a departure from many serious pieces which tend to be depressing when used in competition. This piece is touching, emotional, and yet full of hope. Thank you, Bobby, for writing it."

I am very fond of this short, dramatic duet, all about love and loss.I do realize, however, that if you are doing this piece for a forensics competition, it may run a bit long. If you would like to use this for a forensics competition piece, please contact me at gnign@hotmail.com, and I will send you a list of cuts that should knock it down about 500 words, and put you right in the correct time frame. Thanks.
