    No.  And honestly, while every vignette certainly has its own magic, I can't imagine the show being scaled back to just one act.  If you have enough cast members, the play is a director's dream when it comes to rehearsals.

    I cut it to a one-act for competition, with the publisher's permission. We did the Prologue, Her Heart, Sad & Glad, Getting it Back, the Interlogue, the Story of Hope, and the Epilogue. Mostly I chose the scenes based on my breakdown of actors. I was light on guys, which is why I didn't do They Fell (the female version of that scene wasn't available yet).
