Playwrights Forum, Memphis
With the opening of Bizet's Locket, Playwright's Forum, a company dedicated solely to the development of original scripts, has launched its finest effort this season. The story follows Annette, a young woman of the '60s who has returned to France to track down her birth parents. She enlists the aid of Pierre, a dubious war-hero-turned-cop who helped her adoptive parents smuggle her out of Europe during WWII and now seems to go out of his way to throw Annette off the scent...The script... is compelling and the question of whether or not Pierre is actually a murderous, in-the-closet Nazi provides plenty of intrigue.
