Constance Congdon based on the novel by Henry James

2 Male 4 Female

Constance Congdon writes about her adaptation ...

'I have always loved the story in Henry James’ novel, Washington Square, and I needed to find something for a young Hispanic actress I wanted to work with, so with Ron Bashford’s help, we adapted the story

As we worked on it, we found that it fit really well in the early Sixties, on the verge of the huge social revolution

This time period also made sense because the female lead was trapped in the fifties by her conservative mother, a successful woman who was ashamed of having a half-Hispanic child

Sometimes, when you’re working on a play, things fall in place — the backstory for our play (I say “our” because Ron Bashford was such a close collaborator) arose effortlessly out of the story we were presenting

As the last scene takes place, the young Hispanic daughter hears the beginning of a Sixties protest and leaves the house to join them'
