An idealistic young woman, a crippled survivor of an attempted murder by South American revolutionaries, is visited three years later by the conservative mother of the other attack victim. Slowly, the two dance through their grief, while negotiating the truth of what brought the two young women together, why they undertook their dangerous humanitarian mission, and what happened on that final day.

Sans Merci was the 2008-2009 Reva Shiner Award winner, and will be produced by the Bloomington Playwrights Project in October of 2008. It was a 2006 finalist for the Princess Grace Award and the Abingdon Theater Company’s Christopher Brian Wolk Award and a semifinalist for the O’Neil Playwrights Conference and The Playwrights Center Playlabs Festival.

This program is supported in part by the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs and the Dramatist Guild Fund.
