A reader of The Wallace House of Pain says it would make a good play. I agree! After all, as Shakespeare said, “the play’s the thing”.
I have always been a huge drama nerd, and would love to write plays some day. Put it on the list…
Why would this novelette translate so well to the stage? Well, the tale of troubled family relations, modern social justice issues and deeply personal choices takes place over five dinners and a breakfast. It would be easy to stage, but has plenty of intense dialogue to keep audiences interested.
Check out the novelette (shorter than a novella, longer than a short story) to meet the cast of 6 diverse friends, who also star in my forthcoming, full-length novel Beautiful and Terrible Things. The Wallace House of Pain is available on Amazon.
And I’ll be sure to let you know if my story ever makes it to the stage.
