A Long Trip Script
This is optional.
This highly sought-after one act features an elderly couple who have lived a long and happy life together. Now, however, the woman in slowly slipping away as dementia runs its course. In an attempt to reawaken the bond they have held for so many years, the man tells her of the moment they fell in love. It is a story so vivid that she can see it play out before her eyes: a younger version of the man and woman meeting, falling in love and sharing a first kiss. One final, happy memory for her to take with her on her last long trip.
