The Portrait the Wind the Chair


Y York

Published by Dramatic Publishing

1 Male 2 Female

During the windstorm of the century, ten-year-old Lucy and her fourteen-year-old sister, Terroba, find themselves marooned alone in Gramma's old house

With the phones dead, the electricity out, and Mom nowhere in sight, Lucy must deal with a chair with a mind of its own and a dead gramma who won't stay in her portrait

Her night of imagination and adventure leaves Lucy with a new ability to face her fears and embrace the love that is all around her

Commissioned and produced by the Seattle Children's Theatre, this play "... focuses on everyday matters that many preteen children face... Things like trying to get along with your older/younger sibling, even when they're driving you nuts

Trying to be brave even when you don't feel brave

Learning to accept the illness and death of a loved one

And using fantasy as both an escape and a route to self-discovery
