Anchors of Love

Categories: Short Plays

“The evening’s best work, and its most touching, is Mark Guarino’s Anchors of Love … which paints a fresh, heart-rending picture of the generation gap through a storytelling session between an embittered old man and his bright young grandson … Again, the situation is familiar, but its development, in which characters from the grandfather’s stories literally drift in and out of his memory, is novel, and the dialogue has a freshly minted sound.”
– Chicago Tribune

A young boy asks for a story from his grandfather. The grandfather starts to tell a happy tale from his past, but his past has other plans for him.

One woman in her forties, one man in his sixties, one boy plus assorted silent, memory characters.
