The Night Sky (a ten minute play)

    Eugenie Carabatsos takes complicated, universal concepts like loss, grief, love, connection, despair, and hope, and rather than simplifying those ideas, she makes the context as majestic, universal, confusing, and mysterious as those experiences. The story is intimate and lovely, with two characters that are both recognizable and relatable. Carabatsos’ writing is playful and real, and anyone who has lost a loved one, been in love, or tried to find connection with another person or group of people will discover a piece of themselves in Stella and Stan.

    What a beautiful gem of a sweet play (no pun intended)! This is what a ten-minute play does as its best: calls into question the nature of existence in a way that causes us to inadvertently smile. Thank you!

    This is beautiful. It's complicated while simple, sad and funny, and a just a very delightful read in general. I'd love to see what a production team would come up with for this dynamic duo. I could also see this being a lot of fun in a festival or anthology.
