Excerpt from Florida

Read play synopsis...

SOPHIE
Florida...even name sounds like flowers. Flowers everywhere. Kwiatki...on trees and bushes, climbing up vines. You know the red flowers we have on the altar at Christmas?
CINDY
Point-settas.
SOPHIE
Yes, these are huge in Florida, so big as your head and growing on trees, even in winter.
CINDY
And birds. I want to hear about the birds.
SOPHIE
There are pink birds--pink!! With so long legs, they look like they are walking on stilts. And parrots. There is this place, Parrot Jungle where there are hundreds of parrots. Green and blue and purple. They will sit on your arms and your head even and pull the bobby pins right out of your hair.
CINDY
And fruit.
SOPHIE
Oranges and grapefruits and peaches growing right in people's yards. And so sweet. I think it is what-you-call--where Adam and Ewa were...
CINDY
The Garden of Eden.
