House of the Deaf Man
A fictional story about the life and work of Francisco Goya - a Spanish painter - enthralled with a woman out of his reach and horrified by the world he saw around him. Late in life, he lives in his Quinta del Sordo (Villa of the Deaf) and creates The Black Paintings.
May not be suitable for all ages.
"The first 5 pages is engaging and has an intense feel. The dialog flows really well and will be well suited to production. Goya is really well developed in just these few first pages."
"I think this script thus far presents a viable storyline; a boy who finds a passion, a man who finds an obsession, and the demise that inevitably comes from it. The language seems easy to follow, and I think that trend needs to continue rather than the playwright worrying about authentic language used during the time for such a new play. I find this really interesting, and I can picture the clothing, set, and music being an essential piece to communicating the message of the piece."
