A New Revue-Style Musical
Written by Jye Bryant
A modern, one-act revue-style musical for four people.
Although we never meet Steven, we learn all about him through the disclosures of four people in his life: his Wife, Mother, Father and Ex.
The characters share intimate details about their life with Steven and the things they struggle to tell him. Interestingly, we learn that Steven has his own secrets and as a result will damage the relationships in his life.
The Things I Could Never Tell Steven reminds us that whenever we choose silence we are inadvertently actioning an outcome and that we are never really free from the consequences of our decisions or indecisions.
