    Hi All! It's killing me! I have to find this scene / short play I saw at State competition last school year and I've looked everywhere. When the students slated, they said that the scene was called something like "Always" from a book of 10-minute plays. The scene has 2 F/ 2M and really creatively depicts two couples - one couple in the present/future , and the same one in the past. The scene is played with both couples acting through their scenarios and each circumstance from the past coincides with what is happening in the future/present. There is a significant ring prop in it as well. Anyone?

    Hi -
         The play you're looking for is Always. It's a one-act by Jon Jory involving one couple. Two actors play the couple at the beginning of the relationship, while the other two actors play the same couple when the relationship has gone south. Yes, there is a ring involved. It's included in The Best Ten-Minute Plays of 2004 - 3 or More Actors, published by Smith and Kraus. It's a cool (but fairly serious) play. Hope this helps!

    Bravo, Bob!

    Smith and Kraus does not handle rights for performance, but they can put you in touch with Jory's reps to track down who currently handles the rights to that play.  Jory has plays with Dramatic Publishing Company and Playscripts, possibly more.
