Screenplay Synopsis

Eloise is breaking up with Troy when her overbearing mother, Ellen, drops in for a surprise visit. Ellen has also had a break-up, and Eloise is terrified that she might be turning into her mother. But mother and daughter become closer as Eloise learns more about her mother's life and fears.

About This Screenplay

Ellen and Troy and Eloise is a one act play. I thought I'd finished it but the characters had other ideas and, while it stands alone as a one act play and has been performed as so, it now forms the first act of 'Rebound'.
