Hi. I've been working on a play for probably 2 months now. I wrote the majority of it overnight and since then I've been struggling with the ending. So I'll give you a summary and then ask my question. ACT ONE. PART ONE. We meet Tyler and Anne who are the main characters. Tyler is a musician and Anne is his girlfriend. This part ends with them breaking up. PART TWO. This part takes place a year later. Tyler is living with his best friend Tom and dating a girl named Lisa. His music is picking up and its making him a supplemental income that his job doesn't provide. He runs into Anne at a show and they talk and start hanging out again. Despite the fact that they aren't dating everyone assumes they are including Lisa who breaks up with Tyler assuming he's cheating on her. Tyler calls Anne. They get together at a restaurant and Tyler tells her he is still in love with her and they end up kissing as the lights fall. INTERMISSION. ACT TWO. PART ONE. It is now five years after the beginning of Act One. Tyler and Anne have a child, Brendan. Anne is a drug addict. One day Tyler comes home and tells Anne that the label is sending him on a tour. When he comes back he finds a man named Mark in the apartment. Anne is having an affair with him. Tyler and Anne get into a big fight and Anne leaves. Mark calls that night and tells Tyler than Anne is in the hospital having overdosed from mixing alchohol, Xanax, and hydrocodeine. Tyler goes to the hospital where he and Mark talk about everything. The doctor comes out and says Anne died. PART TWO. It is now Seven years after the beginning of Act One. Tyler's record contract expired and he didn't resign. He moves back to his home town where the first act takes place after being gone for five years. He finds out his mother has cancer and she is refusing to fight it. His father is angry at him for leaving. After a fight he goes out to a party with Tom and his childhood friend Cole who serves as a conscience through the play via phone calls. At this party he attempts to isolate himself but a young girl, Iris, forces him to talk to her. While it's good to talk he doesn't feel comfortable doing it yet. He goes home to his new apartment. He dreams about a conversation with Anne where they talk about her death and what Tyler will do now that she's gone. (Here is where I get shaky about if I'm doing this right.) Tyler's sister, Tracy, comes and then get into a fight where Tyler says that his family doesn't love him etc. and Tracy calls Tyler a selfish immature little kid. She throws a VHS tape at him and leaves. Tyler is angry and goes out to get alcohol and in the process runs into Tom. They get really drunk together and talk about old times and catch up. Tyler eventually gets home and while stumbling to bed sees the VHS tape. He puts it in the VCR and realizes its a home tape. As he watches all the family happiness, in his inebriated state he begins crying and eventually just passes out. The next day he wakes up and goes over to his parent's house to apologize but his father refuses his apology so he takes Brendan and leaves. End. I couldn't think of any ending that seemed realistic other than that one. Any suggestions?
