Play #47 - Flights by Susan Cameron

A sort of charming little ten-minute play about two old flames - Maggie and Carl - who run into each other at the airport. As they chat, they relate stories of past encounters, divorces, common friends, etc. The little secret that comes out - and only to the audience - is that Maggie had called Carl's home a few years ago when she was drunk and sad about an affair gone wrong, and that she had called to confess her love for him. But since then, they've moved on, and there's nothing left between them... or is there? And then, well, off they go to catch their respective flights. It's a sort of wistful piece, and the setting works nicely, with that sense of not really being anywhere that comes with being in an airport.
