Jim’s Room tells the story of Maddie and Beau, who meet, fall in love, but find themselves unable to consummate their relationship. The play deals with my own notion of reincarnation, something I don’t believe in but think is a very comforting metaphor and literary device. When my daughter (whose middle name is Madeleine) was born, I toyed with the fantasy that she was the reincarnation of her stillborn brother Sam, and that gave rise to the writing of this play. Comedy/Drama, full length, 8 characters. Jim’s Room has never been produced.
