Eve of Crimes
A Woman is Never What You Think

Bob  Jude Ferrante

A woman is never what you think. Eve of Crimes is three one-act plays—Memory Motel, Freefalling and The Last Days of Paradise—that form a 100-minute “evening” of theatre. Each play studies a central, female character, who must make a criminal decision to solve a problem. Each of the three plays is also available for production separately. Memory Motel: Tabitha only wanted to be someone—anyone. Then one late night chance meeting changed her forever. Now she’s locked a priest in a confessional until he’ll help prevent her becoming what she can’t avoid. Freefalling: Bartender Maureen Bacon finds out her ex-boyfriend—mob boss Bob McMahan—wants to seize custody of their daughter Barbara. In a hail of bullets, Maureen stages a final, desperate fight to free Barbara from McMahan’s clutches forever. The Last Days of Paradise: A strange woman is incarcerated at The Tombs... a dank, dismal, medieval New York jail and a reluctant Public Defender gradually digs to discover the truth about the “Apart” and the heart of their mystery... “what son of a bitch killed your dream?”
