creative? not really.

I’m trying to think of ideas for a play. I want to write and direct one of Student Productions. Preliminary ideas have included a person going and meeting (getting stuck with?) this group of people who are all extremely good at whatever they do, are very capable and adept people, but they’ve all got this one crippling flaw they cannot overcome. Sort of a tradgedy, but perhaps a happy ending? Also, a drug addict who O/D’s and goes into a coma, and the play is split between the dream world, where he’s wandering around through his own subconscious, and the real world. His progress internally is mirrored by his physical state in the real world. And eventually the big giant spot looming over the stage, which keeps coming ever closer, growing, growing, eventually it overpowers him. His own death arrives.
