Abstract

In The Twilight’s Moon, everyone has secrets. Between the two married couples and their interconnected relationships to one another, the audience will delve within the imaginative, realistic world of adultery, feeling the backlash it can create on a marriage. The implication of homosexuality brought to light reflects upon the variety of reactions one may take in regards to the concept. This play has endured five vigorous revisions, informal presentations, and a formal presentation of two performances to an impartial audience and the actors involved. From a two act to a three act play, characters changing along with their motives, this play has grown into the form that it is currently, one that explores the nature of relationship within a marriage and the risks one takes to keep it…and betray it.
