Fiction

Time to Burn

Mee, Charles L.

The poor, homeless, and disaffected, just trying to get from day to day, living in an abandoned factory in Chicago, a relic of an industrial age that no longer provides employment. It seems, for the most part, they are simply trying to survive hard economic times, and then it turns out, probably, they are just living under the shadow of mortality, like everyone else. Inspired by Maxim Gorky's Lower Depths. [12 actors]
