A couple of years ago I read a short play online and am desperately searching to read it again. I can't remember the name or the author. I'm pretty sure it was p.d..

The play concerns a woman who is being visited by a man in her home. (She may be married, I don't remember.) Late one night she is up and sees that the visitor is up and sitting in the den. She asks him if he can't sleep. He explains that he is asleep upstairs. He is the man's soul or conscience. (I don't remember exactly how he states it.) Basically he is the guys soul. And he and the woman talk very openly about the man and how he really is, what he really feels, thinks. All the while the actual man is upstairs asleep.

As I say, I'm pretty certain this is not a contemporary play.

Any info. on it would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Hello Ryanco, I assume you don't recall the name or that would be easier. If you can recall a word string, sometimes you can type that string in your browser and find what you're looking for... then again ???

Is it by any chance this --

THE OPEN DOOR
a play in one-act
by Alfred Sutro

The following play is reprinted from Five Little Plays. Alfred Sutro. New York: Brentano, 1922. It is believed to be in the public domain and may therefore be performed without royalties.

http://www.one-act-plays.com/comedies/open_door.html

I used these Google search terms and it came up on the first page,
"play a woman speaks to the soul of her husband asleep upstairs"
