Innocent Eve -- One Act
by Christopher Kell
One Act Stage Drama (25 minutes approx.)
Rowan is a New Age child in her late teens who lives in a wooden shelter in a small wood owned by Eve and Gerald who are about to split up. Eve stumbles on Rowan's shelter and on hearing how Rowan is largely self-supporting by selling dried flowers and her own printed fabrics, is impressed and softens. Gerald enters, cynical and bitter, demanding that Rowan vacates the dwelling as they are selling the land for property development. When Rowan's traveller boyfriend turns up, Eve and Gerald learn basic truths about their own materialistic lifestyle, their failing marriage and begin to re-evaluate their own beliefs.
