She Wrote, Died, Then Wrote Some More

She Wrote, Died, Then Wrote Some More

by Steven Stack

Tonight was going to be writer Alina Deveraux’s most important night, the unveiling of her memoirs: a non-fiction fictional retelling of Alina’s life moment by moment up until three hours ago when she finished it.

Until she ended up dead. Or not dead.

The comedic, melodramatic one-act mystery, She Wrote, Died, Then Wrote Some More, is an hilarious romp that features betrayals, broken hearts, a rather odd but beautiful love story, and many twists. The play features a cast of eccentric and unique characters, who may or may not at some point end up dying themselves. Or appearing murdered because of a rare fainting when frightened disorder…

Praise for She Wrote, Died, Then Wrote Some More

Jennifer Wagner
Prince of Wales Secondary
A wonderful show! Great fun. Highly recommend for high school productions. Students loved the "over the top" characters and really had fun with the physicality and overall silliness.
Jennifer Wagner
Prince of Wales Secondary
We had so much fun working on "She Wrote, Died, Then Wrote Some More" by Stephen Stack. It was a piece that we showcased as part of a grouping of short scenes and One Acts at Prince of Wales. The show got BIG laughs thanks (in part) to the witty dialogue and farcical nature of the various scenes and circumstances. It was a real crowd pleaser. Highly recommend this piece for high school productions.
