Things That Are Round

Tetherly, a dentist specializing in existential terror, and Nina, an opera singer who just might be the worst babysitter ever, square off in this strange ballet of truth or dare. But is this a game anyone can even win?

Setting

The present. A living room. At once the most polite and secret room in the house.

Characters

  • TETHERLY, 40s but appears to be in her 30s. White. Dentist. Finishing a PhD in theoretical calculus. She believes everything she does is benign.
  • NINA, 24 going on 24. Latina. Former paralegal. Aspiring opera singer. When she talks it’s arrows.
