My girls are homeschooled -- as you may or may not know. But that doesn't mean they spend all day cooped up in the house. Once or twice a week they attend classes at a charter school.
They take classes on art, geography, film making, and chess... And sometimes I help out by teaching theater and writing classes.
About a year ago, they wanted to create a play that was about artists, adventurers, and inventors from the turn of the century (late 1800s - early 1900s). So, I toyed around with a few ideas and TADA -- I wrote "Impressions of Yesterday."
The premise: two sisters discover an old trunk that is magically connected to an art studio in Paris, 1899. Out of the trunk pops Mary Cassatt, Monet, Degas, and many other iconic figures from the era.
The play is available at Playscripts Inc.
