The Lost Souls

The dramatic intent for this story is to convey the order vs chaos and the pain, emotion and coldness of the past adoption practices and policies which were forced upon women back then. I’ve approached this story with short dialogue and powerful impacting scenes. It’s a personal drama with a tragic trajectory and defining characters such as the abrupt, detached, and cold nurses of the time, the shamed parents and society’s views resonating through the laundry workers. There is also the subtle hint through Mary, that the less than moral practices imposed by the government and treatment executed by the nurses, that the women in such a predicament should be treated more humanely.
