Marks of Birth

by Marilyn Anne Campbell

A Little History

Marks of Birth was completed for Pat the Dog Playwright Centre's  6th Annual 24-Hour Playwriting Contest in 2014, which gave participants three prompt words to write from - tattoo, butter, and dig. Just like my other PTD 24-Hour Contest Script Flood Control, this script did not place in the contest, but was produced shortly after.
