WINDFALL by Charles Hertz
*HONEGGER PRIZE WINNER FOR BEST SHORT PLAY*
Directed by Tim Diering

What could possibly be wrong with learning youíre entitled to a sudden, unexpected, and perfectly legal payment?

A down-at-the-heels insurance beneficiary meets the gilded heir to a family business.

One is the son of long-time loyal employee of the business; the other is the son of the owners who made their fortunes at it.

Their histories overlap in ways bound to alienate but also bond them.

A woman feigns astonishment that her boyfriend wants to marry her to force him to confront his inability to express his feelings for her.

Only when he does will she say yes.

CATHARSIS INTERRUPTUS by Elaine Brousseau
Directed by Leslie Pasternack

In Ancient Greece, two actors, Cosmas and Hilarion, use the occasion of an outdoor drama festival to debate the wisdom and necessity of the theatrical practice of wearing masks.

Meanwhile, Thalia, Cosmasí sister, has her own ideas.

The play uses anachronism to heighten the comedy and put the mask-wearing in perspective.

TAKE ME HOME by Christopher Lockheardt
Directed by Geehae Moon

All Chelle wants to do is go home.

But Pennyís not sure itís home anymore.

YOU DONíT HAVE TO GO HOME BUT YOU CANíT STAY HERE by Erin Enwright Directed by Adair Rowland

Much to Gigiís dismay, Josie has brought Peter back to the apartment after dinner.

Peter and Josie havenít been dating long but itís been long enough for Gigi, Josieís kitten, who decides to take a stand on all four paws.

Her thoughts are not transparent to Josie or Peter but her actions certainly are.

Not a Peter fan?

Not Gigi!
