It Was Raining in Minneapolis

Two brothers, one a successful actor, and the other a more modest family man, meet unexpectedly, and discuss what it means to be happy.

Bill is sitting in his kitchen, waiting for his wife and daughter to come home, when out of nowhere, his brother Richie arrives. He says he’s looking for something he left behind years ago when he left for Hollywood, and starts rummaging through Bill’s kitchen to find it. This leads them down a path of somber discussion about life and what is means to be successful and content with oneself.

This is a virtual script reading of one of my unreleased short play projects. It delves into the recesses of human behavior, shining a spotlight on what one will do to achieve their own definition of self-worth and happiness. It’s more of an impactful piece, and will leave you thinking about your own life and the lives of those around you.
