The Children's Act - A Black Comedy


P. Hogan Coyle

Published by New Theatre Publications

2 Male 3 Female

As played by adults, Gloria, Ted, and Cindy are beastly children. Spoiled, sullen, brutal - they are trapped in a childhood subject to whim and the casual cruelty of their parents. Embroiled in resentment, Mother and Father can not see the damage they do. The conflict erupts during a family day out in the park. Pushed beyond endurance, the children act. Bitingly funny and truly shocking, "The Children's Act" will cause many a complacent parent to squirm in recognition. One-act
