Our next plays

Three short plays will be read: (1) "Bye Bye Brevoort" by Eudora Welty; (2) "Tone Clusters" by Joyce Carol Oates; and (3) "Linda Her" by Harry Kondoleon. A short synopsis of each play is mentioned below.


“Bye-Bye Brevoort” by Eudora Welty

Three elderly ladies live in the hundred-year-old Hotel Brevoort. They entertain a gentleman caller for tea while wrecking balls and workers destroy the hotel around them.

“Tone Clusters” by Joyce Carol Oates

Based on the real-life case of Robert Golub, who was convicted of stabbing the 13-year old daughter of his neighbours. Golub's parents answer the questions of an unseen interrogator, but it seems they do not know their son very well.

“Linda Her” by Harry Kondoleon

Carol lies awake at night pondering her dissatisfaction with her domestic life – a boring husband and a brat of a daughter. She is thoroughly fed up with domestic life. However her unmarried friend, Janet, thinks that this sort of life would be great . . .
