UnWritten was originally begun on 7/31/2014

It was, (and is), a mysterious thing.  This is what I knew when it first began:

CREATURE OF FEW WORDS:  “There is nothing that you will see in this world more real in its unreality, than the dreaming creature that stands before you.”

Also, that it begins like this:

BOOK BINDER:  “Tell me a story.”

????:  “What?”

BOOK BINDER:  “Tell me a story.”

????:  “Why?”

BOOK BINDER:  “Because while you’re telling it, I’ll be writing it down.    And then I can tell it to others when you’re not here.”

The play is currently entitled:  UnWritten

Genre:  Comedic Drama

Length:  Unknown

Synopsis:  Wherein Creature of Few Words meets Book Binder.  Don’t know what else yet.
