Wishful Thinking

Hi everyone!

This is a play about 3 personalities. It is set in a prison in space. They are trapped there in the future, trying to return home, which is Calgary, AB, Canada.


I thought long and hard about the reasons why I left. Did it have to do with change? I changed her, she wasn’t me. I was in reverse there, trying to prove myself when there was no need. Show them that I can be left-brained, I thought over and over again.


I gave up something very important – the ability to procreate. I think they were listening, but no one would make the sun shine. I became used to a large company running this way. It was amazing, the work I did.


She’s dressing for tomorrow, frantically preparing for what could be the start of something amazing. As soon as I’m free, I will quickly realize what reality is, she thinks.

CHONA FE & BLOX – Ask us what we’re doing.

DAISY – Ask me what I do for work.

(silence in the prison; they sit on their cold beds, dressed in yellow and grey stripes, holding their heads down in agony)

(Daisy exits)

(ChonaBLOX enters; she is their savior, a creative entity with powers to change reality)


(back in town, ChonaBLOX is working; it is present day)

How would we portray the above? Have you attempted to write about your life story before? What was your experience? Positive outcomes? Negative? And on a side note, can we just say how scary writing can actually be?
