Andromache Studio publishes new plays for the modern theatre, including the theatre of the mind.
The exquisite workmanship and extraordinary imagination of author Grace Andreacchi are resoundingly showcased in these plays. Andreacchi unites the traditions of the medieval mystery play, the beautiful form and style of classical drama (particularly in her use of the chorus), and the stories of these beloved saints.
- Dappled Things
These two plays can be performed separately as one-act dramas, or together for a longer programme. Both are suitable for all audiences.
AGNES: A twelve-year-old girl is ordered to marry a young man of her family's choosing. But Agnes has other ideas - she is already secretly betrothed to the lover she prefers, and she's willing to die for him.
LAWRENCE: Christians are being hunted down and killed by the Roman authorities. The Bishop of Rome is arrested, but not before he has time to entrust the entire church treasury to a young, untried deacon. When the Emperor orders him to hand it over on pain of death, what will he do?
