Drama. 15-20 minutes. 2 females. Suitable for high school and older.
Workshopped at the Community Education Center (Philadelphia, PA).
Mother's Day is also available as part of On the Edge: Challenging Short Plays for Teen Actors, a collection that may be produced in any order (and with any plays left out).
What do teenage girls really talk about when they are most vulnerable? How can what is not said aloud be almost as important as what is? In this short drama, Julianne and Sarah attempt to avoid the topic of Julianne's recent abortion, and tentatively reveal what they value about motherhood, as they share their two very different visions for the future.
