The Fly: A Play

eBook (PDF), 88 Pages
(1 Ratings)
Price: $6.95
The intellectual offspring of Ionesco, Beckett, and Pinter, Walter Wykes is known for his intense roles and dark subject matter. In this play, he takes us on a deliciously depraved tour de force as Murray, a celebrity author in the middle of a very public (and messy) divorce, finds himself unable to write. He has nothing more to say—that is, until he meets Emma, the wife of an obsessed fan. In Emma, Murray recognizes the possibility of a new muse, someone to inspire him, to get the words flowing again. In a dark, half-lit bar, he attempts to seduce her, to draw her, like a fly, into his web, but Emma has an agenda of her own. She enlists Murray's aid in curing her husband's obsession. Still intent on seduction, Murray plays along. His presence in the young couple's home, however, is the catalyst not for any cure, but rather for a violent explosion that will propel the play towards its inevitable conclusion and raise the question ... who is the spider and who is the fly?
