Title: Fluke
Author: Sanford, Emily Elizabeth
Department: Department of Drama
Advisor: Thompson, Judith
Abstract: This thesis is a creative work in the form of a full-length dramatic play script After Pat's husband Lionel leaves her moves in with another woman, Pat and her daughter Tamara return "home" to the place of Pat's childhood on the shores of northern Nova Scotia, along the Bay of Fundy. There, Pat encounters the trials of family life and rediscovers her sense of self as the geography of Novia Scotia dictates a necessary respect for a regionally specific way of life. The play studies the strength of the family unit as it encounters the emotional and physical crises of its members. Commenting upon the original intentions, choices, and development of the play, the Afterword addresses some of the compromises and problems of the creative artistic process from within the space of an academic setting.
