WHAT IF IF ONLY

Your partner’s gone, could things have been different? Churchill’s new 25-minute one-act play delves deeply into the possibilities that lie behind grief and mourning. When your dearest love leaves this earth, all you can do is wish to see them again. But what happens when you do? 

AIR

This short stream-of-consciousness piece was included as an addendum in the publication of WHAT IF IF ONLY. It is written with no characters or planned narrative, just a writer at her peak expression putting words together as they come.
