A One-Act Comedy
By Brett Ryback

WINNER! 2007 Tennesee Williams One-Act Competition

“A devilishly delightful comedy!”
David Cuthbert, the New Orleans Times-Picayune
The Three Weïrd Sisters from Shakespeare’s Macbeth are on the lam in Denmark. Warned by the “signs”, the eldest sister, Torrence, and the youngest sister, Harper, fear that the awful deeds they committed in Scotland have finally caught up with them, and once again they make plans to flee.

One thing, however, stands in their way: their middle sister, Linn. Tired of life on the run, she disavows her sisters, pledging to do anything, even turn them in, if it meant they would no longer have to run away from their past.

A knock on the door brings a mysterious traveler into their home, and with him the opportunity for Linn to lead a normal life at the cost of leaving her family. Ultimately she must decide between a new found hope for life and love, and the family who cares for her more than anything else.
