Along with this please find THE Urge, the submission of my ten minutes play to your contest. The novel, written as a drama, has two female characters and a male character, needs different costumes for different characters, one of the requirements for a house in the middle class. THE DESIRE is a story of two life-widrigger sisters, the good sister has a husband who knows very well that the other sister is evil that the good sister does not know. This makes her an excellent candidate for the competition because it is a portrayal of what goes on in our daily lives and many things going on around people that they do not know about. The audiences will be intrigued by The Desire because, it presents family issues in a dramatic and interesting way, it shows how siblings can keep secrets from each other and the drama has been presented in a realistic way with appropriate costumes depicting the person’s character. I have an insightful background that has given me plausible plenty ideas on how to write an effective play, I choose to write this play because it is one of the interesting genres the audiences love and unique because as opposed to dramas that involve sibling rivalry, the play presents it in a different way.

GREG: What is it, whose text is that?
RHODA: It is RAHAB, she is coming over.

RHODA: Of course not, I didn’t even know she was in town.

GREG: it is your sister, you know how I feel about her, and soon you will believe what I tell you.

GREG: thanks to you, my sweet girl (RHODA) had to leave the penthouse your parents left you with because she wants the best for you, and what do you do; you turn it into a brothel!! (RHODA hears everything but remains silent)
