The Glass Family by Leonore H. Dvorkin
Approx. 4,450 words.
Published on July 6, 2012.
A play in one act, in which the transparent characters – Glenn, Glenda, Gladwin, and Glennis Glass – offer their opinions on such weighty philosophical matters as being half full or half empty, accepting oneself as one comes from the Great Factory, the restricted lives of their costlier neighbors in the locked china cabinet, the fate of an unfortunate cousin with a glass jaw, and much more.
