(A ten-minute play)

by Melisa Malvin-Middleton


On a cliff overlooking the ocean, an adult sister and brother are waiting for the sun to set in order to do something meaningful. While they pass the time—the free-spirited Ally goofs off playing a game she recalls from her childhood and the business-like Brett is wrapped up in his Blackberry—sibling rivalries and adult resentments resurface. Yet beneath the bitterness still resides a loving bond that ties them together in a powerful moment of reflection.
