Warm Roses (full length)
Warm Roses is a free adaptation of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya. Meg runs two Jersey Shore bed and breakfast inns left to her by her late husband. With the help of her son Marcus and best friend Joanie, she’s keeping the places afloat and most of her sanity. As another summer winds down in the long line of endless summers, Meg’s brother in law Terry and his young graduate assistant Oliver come to stay, upsetting the daily balance. With Terry’s arrival also comes the memory of Meg’s late husband and the losses she’s racked up along the way. As Labor Day approaches, Marcus prepares to leave home for school, Terry proposes a change to the current financial model, and Joanie makes a rash sexual advance that could have lasting consequences. In the middle of all of this remains Meg--at once lonely and in good company--as a bulwark against the changing moment in both her life and the life of her family. The end of summer sees all forces crash together in furious moments of loss and hilarity, desire and reticence, weakness and strength
