Drama. Music. Two characters, Del and Lee, search for a memorial to an act of violence that had an explosive cultural impact on their rapidly shifting city, a quest that finds them negotiating challenging physical and interpersonal landscapes. They share the stage with Clare, a vulnerable docent-like soul whose personal tales skirt the edges of Del and Lee's search. At its core VICINITY/MEMORYALL investigates the power and purpose of memorials for individuals and the culture at large. Produced to be used, Entre Ríos Books mimicked the Dramatists Guild format: it's stapled, bound in durable stock, and cheap enough to get all the copies your theater might need, but with a touch more design flair and a nod to armchair reading. This book includes a digital download featuring an original song by Christine Deavel, music by R. Gary Deavel, and a film by Sarah Lintakoon.
Christine Deavel has published poems and essays, including the poetry collection Woodnote (Bear Star Press), which received the Washington State Book Award. She is a patient-and-family liaison at Seattle's Harborview Medical Center.
