Synopsis

The Death of Frank

$12.99

Stephen Belber

Published by Dramatists Play Service

2 Male 2 Female

The Death of Frank is the story of Peter, a young, earnest gardener with a desire to save the world, and Natalie, his odd, jaded sister, who tends to like things that hurt her

One of those things is Frank, an older guy with a rough edge and a shady job description. Peter's world is Natalie, so naturally he wants to save her, but he accidentally falls in love with a linguist named Lynn who tries to teach him that there's more to life than one's sister

This is a play about choices made in the face of unavoidable desire; it's about form and function, sweetness and danger, and passion and articulation

"The real edge in Belber's work has to do with [the characters'] predisposition to violence as a way of expressing, and receiving, love. It's a pathology that plays out chillingly and with stark emotional contours" ~ CurtainUp
