At one point, the friends begin to turn on each other and we see how each character holds particular dreams and aspirations that have, for one reason or another, begun to crumble. In this particular scenario, a group of adults decide to become criminals. The emotional center of this drama appears with two characters who happen to be sisters: Renu, an actress, and Priya, her more responsible older sister and who happens to be running the titular Fortune Club dive bar.
The rather ironic name of this bar becomes more apparent as Priya reveals that they are in dire financial straits and that they must rely again on relatives to help make ends meet. Of course this scheme involves a mode of crime: identity theft. In this case, they research the backgrounds of various celebrities and affluent socialites, document their personal information and credit card numbers and proceed to buy whatever it is that they want. The more satirical take of this work might strike differently at this point with so many out of work and seeking some salve for their financial troubles.
It seems to be a speculative play about the nature of good and evil and whether or not there can be any redemption. The two main roles are given to a young attractive woman named Lamb and then her romantic lead named Gordy. This dark premise turns on its head quickly.
Gordy likes Lamb and realizes he cannot go through with the plan. Doc, the violent antagonist of the play, comes into the scene trying to force the act, but Gordy kills him to protect Lamb.
The Magic Tree (Oberon Modern Plays)
Lenny, who is part of the crew but seems to be more interested in eating than anything else, is an interesting side-character. The second act involves Lamb and Gordy having traveled to Cambodia.
Again, there is this comparison between individual acts of violence and then systematic ones that come up in this particular way. I was a little bit confused as to the singular nature of the first act and then this move to widespread genocide in the second. Further still, Lenny seems to have been killed or has disappeared by the second act, presumably and possibly at the hands of Gordy. Can there be individual or societal redemption? The play seems to suggest that the process is incredibly intricate and tortured in its own way; this play definitely leaves you unsettled.

In this case, she is particularly critical of the fact that prisons function to cover a wound, but do little to actually engage why the wound was created in the first place. This play is about two half-sisters; one is racially mixed, the other is white.
Their mother is Chloe, a woman who is currently in an abusive relationship. Affy is able to escape the home when her father—presumably from a sense of guilt—is willing to take her back. Di is thus stuck with Chloe, but realizes that such a life may be an incredible dead end.
Feb 15, Molly Ferguson rated it liked it Shelves: irish-lit. This was a well-constructed and compelling play that deals with a premeditated rape, but the second half sort of fell apart for me. I think she is a gifted playwright though.go site
