Bad Girl: A Play
Price: Free! Words: 15,680. Language: English. Published: May 10, 2014. Categories: Plays » Women Authors
From the playwright... I wrote this play as a reminder of the harsh, unforgiving times that were the 1950’s, when uncomfortable words and actions were swept under the rug. If the dialogue sounds last century, or events seem improbable, we can be grateful they do. It's a fictionalized account of what happened to "girls in trouble." But the story is true. I lived it.
