Rope of Sands is a original teleplay written, produced and directed by Toni Seger. It was taped in Portland, Maine for the Community Television Network.
Rope of Sands is a domestic drama (read 'food fight') in one-act touching on many things including the nature of creative expression and the potentially lethal destructiveness of passivity and non-communication.
The dynamic is that of three characters who verbally chase each other in dizzying and frustrating circles. At times, they are witty and are often deliberately provocative, but none of the three are able to connect.
In No Exit, Jean Paul Sartre depicted hell as being eternally trapped after death in a triangle of people with whom you can?t make contact and you can?t escape. Rope of Sands brings that hell into life.
