NO MOVES BACK by Martin Halpern. This is the fourth play in our Salt & Pepper Series
In an out-of the-way corner of Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, Morrie and Alan, two retired Jewish classical musicians in their seventies, are playing one of many chess matches they have played over their long friendship. But Morrie has sunk into a deep depression, and has lost all interest in the game, in his music, and in life itself. Alan, a determined optimist, tries to pull Morrie out of his depression, but with little success.
Into this situation come five other characters who affect them in contrasting ways.
By the end of the play, all the other characters having departed, Morrie and Alan are left to reflect on these encounters and on their future relationship. What they arrive at, after a struggle, is a new beginning, in which Morrie will work his way toward enjoying both chess and music again in the company of his life-long, life-affirming friend.
