Ice Magnolia

One- woman play

The novel Ice Magnolia by Marjana Moškrič (Ljubljana: Cankarjeva založba, 2002) tells the story of a girl's coming of age. In today's strange world, both Lucija's parents forsake her: her father abandons the family for personal reasons, leaving his daughter to her already overworked mother, who seeks consolation in a new partner. The relationships in the family are further complicated when it becomes obvious that the newest member of the family is interested not only in his wife.
Vanja Plut, Špela Stres

And how does one escape such lost relationships? …
"There is a loneliness that can be rocked. Arms crossed, knees drawn-up; holding, holding on, this motion, unlike a ship's, smooths and contains the rocker. It's an inside kind - wrapped tight like skin. Then there is a loneliness that roams. No rocking can hold it down. It is alive, on its own. A dry and spreading thing that makes the sound of one's own feet going seem to come from a far-off place."
Toni Morrison
