BEHIND CLOSED DOORS
Out of stock
Behind Closed Doors – by Doris Gwaltney
“For most people, death comes behind closed doors… a quiet event, perhaps shared by friends and family… But for some there’s drama, even horror as some commit suicide, are murdered, or executed.” From author’s preface”
Following the success of A Mirror in Time, the current collection of performance monologues, Behind Closed Doors, is also a gripping study of historical married couples. However, these are set in prisons, bedrooms, palaces, gardens and a bunker. Unlike A Mirror in Time, these scenes are dark, tense moments in lives that have been bought and sold, lived and mourned. From Sir Walter Raleigh’s ignominious demise in the Tower of London, to Alice Roosevelt’s short marriage with Teddy, loves are stripped bare. Cruel truth is touched by Marie Antoinette and Adolf Hitler. Marriage is written in new language by William Blake and Virginia Woolf. Readers are invited behind History’s closed doors and should enter at their own risk.
