I suspect that much of your synopsis is actually backstory. Backstory should be either ommitted or limited to five words or less in a synopsis. The synopsis, afterall, is about the action of your play. Stick to the action.

Also, only name the most essential characters -- often just the main character in short synopsis.

In your synopsis I do not get a sense of when your play begins. In fact, two of the three characters you first mention seem to be dead before the action even starts.

Start your synospis where your play starts. What would that read like?
