The New Play (pending)

What the heck will my next play be about?

For the purposes of my own writerly development, I want it to have few characters, possibly all female. I know who they are, and I know what their problems are with each other -- I just don't know where to put them.

My tendency is to go nerdy. Magic. Swordfights. Etc. Trouble is, while fairies and witches were all cool for Shakespeare, they come across as a little D&D nowadays.

So, am I actually going to find myself writing a modern family drama? If the set calls for a couch or kitchen table, please slap me.
