  THE LAST WORD, A new play written and directed byTom Parks
 
They meet in a small café. It’s a date. Well, actually it’s their anniversary. They reminisce, talk politics, the children, their work, and matters of the world.
 
He’s a mellow fellow, adoring of his wife while holding his own with his somewhat impatient and demanding spouse. The marriage has worked and even flourished for over forty years, in fact, they are still in love. The comfortable conversation moves along smoothly—until. She begins to ask some unlikely, bewildering, questions concerning their life and their future together.
 
 Why these questions, he asks? At which time she reveals a secret she’s been keeping to herself for too long. It is a secret that will change their lives forever.
 
The Players: Carol Daly, Mitch Davis, Alyca Tanner.

The novel is set in Airstrip One (formerly known as Great Britain), a province of the superstate Oceania in a world of perpetual war, omnipresent government surveillance, and public manipulation. The superstate and its residents are dictated to by a political regime euphemistically named English Socialism, shortened to "Ingsoc" in Newspeak, the government's invented language. The superstate is under the control of the privileged elite of the Inner Party, a party and government that persecutes individualism and independent thinking as "thoughtcrime", which is enforced by the "Thought Police".
