Play Title:The Other
Runtime:6-10 minutes
Synopsis:Two women meet for lunch after a ten year's absence. Although there are two characers on stage, only one of them speaks. The women met at a feminist group. Through the years, their lives lead them on entirely different paths. At the end of the play, the speaking woman realizes that the other woman has not spoken a word in the entire time.
Who is 'the other' in the play? The woman who reveals herself or the woman who communicates by silence?
