dc.description.abstract This thesis is a one-act play. Quiver follows a mother and her two teenage daughters after a traumatic turn of events. The play is based on a personal event that transitioned into fiction with a modern-day Greek tragedy ending. I used a mixture of scenes and direct address monologues. I studied other plays which balanced scenes and direct audience address; Morris Panych’s ‘Girl in the Goldfish Bowl’, and 'The Glass Menagerie' by Tennesse Williams. Archery is a recurring theme in the play. I was interested in the archaic image of a contemporary girl carrying arrows in her backpack. Ultimately, this is a story about the repercussions of divorce, what can happen when the father is removed from the family unit and how every member of the family is just trying to survive after the traumatic circumstances of separation. en_US
