My Name Is Martha - One Act Play Scripts

On the face of it, Martha is a vagrant who hangs out on a piece of wasteland with George, another vagrant, shouting drunken advice at passers-by. George is a pessimist with no self-esteem, whereas Martha has self-belief in spades. But we learn that she has another life living in suburbia in her own house and near her daughter Megan. Her son-in-law Kevin is a Conservative candidate in a local election, and he and Megan want Martha off the streets during his campaign. At Megan's bidding a policeman 'escorts' Martha to Megan's house, where she is sedated. Her only ally is her granddaughter Sadie, who takes her home. In a final scene at the wasteland, George and Martha assert their rights to be recognised as individuals.
