Not Any Little Girl

Publisher’s Comments:
A short play about Grant Harrington, a man forced to kill a teenager by the name of Lecy Newsted. Gaining the confidence of Lecy’s sister Cora, Grant thinks he may have a plan worked out. But Lecy Newsted is not any little girl.

Hello Ghouls and Boils,

Trent Zelazny, a perennial favorite at She Never Slept, in our eleventeenth (his words) interview discussed his one act play – Not Any Little Girl. I was very excited to read and review it. So — let’s get to it. Enjoy, my fiends!

Abstrusely,
Sarah L. Covert

Trent Zelazny has done it again. He has knocked another one out of the ball park. Not Any Little Girl is an amazing tale and I wish I had the chance to see it performed (*wink wink* *nudge nudge* to any playhouse directors in Charlotte).

It is easy to spoil a sixteen page one act play. So I want to talk a bit about the characters and the feel of the play.

There are three characters in the play – Grant, Lecy, and Cora. Lecy and Cora are sisters. Grant is a hitman who has come to their town on assignment. Lecy and Cora are polar opposites (think sugar and spice). Cora is the older sister, but Lecy seems to be the stronger  and more perceptive one. She suspects something is awry immediately when Grant comes to rent their deceased parents’ coffee shop.

The play is both mysterious and somber in the beginning, but soon the mood shifts to something even darker. As the mystery and chemistry between our assumed villain Grant and the young Lecy begins to unfold you find something unsuspected.

Final Thoughts:
Not Any Little Girl is a well written play that deserves more exposure. It is dark and witty at the same time. The plot and mood move swiftly and stealthily leaving your head spinning. I recommend this to anyone who like noir, mysteries, or plays. I hope to see it live someday. Bravo Trent! This play gets a 5 out of 5 tentacles.
