Drama, chapbook, 48 pages, from Bottlecap Features.
Muted. is a one-act play about Sid, a college sophomore, and Chelsea, a ghost of a former middle school acquaintance, in transitional states. Told over twenty-four reflecting scenes in Sid’s dorm room, the play forces it’s characters to confront their own inertia and grow in small and significant ways.
This is a ghost story for people haunted by the seemingly insignificant moments of life. This is a human story for people trapped in a seemingly meaningless existence. This is a story for people.
