Melody

    By

    "My heart had broken. Cracked like a paving stone tapped by a mallet. All things in life which require effort - pleasure, passion, wit and thought - are impossible when your heart is cracked. And it's also very hard to get out of bed"


    Tonight everything must go.


    Melody's got secrets. Dirty, dark, sick-to-the-bottom-of-your-stomach secrets that she's hidden away from for years. The tattoos up her arms tell part of the story, but the truth is a lot more complicated.


    John, the boyfriend, thinks he knows Melody but he doesn't know the half of it. To him, it's just a question of presentation. Olive, Melody's irascible almost-mother-in-law, thinks she knows all about it. She isn't afraid to put her oar in, but she's got her version of events to hide. Ashley turns up at Melody's door on a mission to reveal everything. Only she doesn't know the full picture.


    The pressure that's been building up for years is about to boil over. Melody premiered at the Traverse Theatre in March 2006.
