Cause + Effect
– the consequence of action.

Is there meaning in your (story) world. Or are Beginning – Middle – End ultimately made inconsequential by Time, 3 points on top of one another?

Exercise:
3 characters.

The same person: Past/ Present/ Future

They don’t recognise each other. The End of Act 1 – or perhaps End of Act 2 is that recognition.

Past/ Young: hopes
Present/ middle-aged: stasis/ or throwing herself into a Law degree as a mum
Future/ old: life no more than wasted hours

- or the opposite.

Do NOT follow the tropes.
Is this a Huis Clos Set Up – the character trapped with each other.
Is it more like Chekhov?

Or can you write it as Farce?

Think of you Theme – the idea/s underpinning the story which the drama between the characters develops + explores.

Is Time illusory – a source of Pain?
What is Time in the story – to each character – and to us (the spectator)?
