I'm writing a play, it's about two brothers, composers. I am not sure what a good conflict would be between them. Any ideas?
If two composers were raised in the same environment, both inspired by the same kind of stimuli, they may both compose a similar piece of music.
Now throw in disparity of looks and personality -- one brother has it all, the other is disadvantaged -- and the fact that one or both parents favour the personable brother over the other, and you have sibling rivalry.
Now chuck in Corey's very good ideas, especially the beautiful girl, and you're off to the races...
What if you promote idea of two brothers. The first one was born couple of years earlier than the second one. Mother didn't love the child from her first marriage and upon birth delivery she left the child at the doors of some orphanage or church. Then she got married to another man and gave birth to her beloved second son, that she cherished and loved. So you see what story line I am offering to you? Now you can write my essay for me and develop the story line the way you see it.
