Islands (one act, companion to Two Sons in the Sea)

Jeffrey and his big brother Edwin have grown apart, but on this day they span distance and time to reconcile, briefly, during a medical emergency.  Perhaps it’s the drugs, or perhaps his brother’s presence, but Edwin feels more spry and energetic.  Their memories grow physical as they wrestle and belt out the protest songs that rocked their youth, back before a family truth was known to them, a truth later denied then buried.  The import of that truth is acknowledged with calm acceptance, as is the import of this particular day when Jeffrey grows older than his big brother.
