The Plays

  1. We've Got Soul by David Hartman
    • The gripping story of an aging shoe, and his realization of his place in a world dominated by a "newer is better" philosophy. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll hold your breath until the smell is gone.
  2. It's Not Identity Theft If You Pay The Bills On Time by Cat Darensbourg
    • After discovering an elderly recluse who has lain dead in her kitchen for two years without neighbors suspecting, a desperate homeless family poses as distant relatives to take her house.
  3. You're Never Alone by Ben Sandofsky
    • A monologue about friendship.
  4. Entropy by Ben Sandofsky
    • A play about priorities, coincidences and connections.
  5. Among Friends... by Peter James Miller
    • "How coule things get any worse?" One of those questions that you ask, hoping not to get an answer. Come visit Brandon, Rich, Ryan and Jen and all the craziness that happens when a few of the parents come to visit.
  6. Captions by Michael J. Ciaraldi
    • The eternal triangle: a boy, a girl, a computer.
  7. Two Graves by Michael J. Ciaraldi
    • From the Weblogs of Summer Cum Laude, College Detective.
  8. It's noon. Do you know where your gun is? by Nick Barnes
    • This is the tale of two friends who we find in a duel, old-west style. Sometimes, nothing reminds you of why you're friends with someone like a battle to the death!
  9. a Viking walks by by Karen Singh
    • A discontented viewer searches hopelessly, oblivious to six actors who are entrapped by his boredom and becoming weary of their torturous fate. Hilarity ensues.
  10. Anomaly by Dean O'Donnell
    • Bob and Ray sort mail at the post office, but Ray always sorts a little faster -- Bob figures it has something to do with Ben Franklin, the Great Pyramid of Cheops, the Knights Templar, Pi, and a time vortex. Bob figures that if he plays his cards (and letters) right, he could live forever.
  11. A Slice of Grief (a short play in 5 stages) by Chris Cenotti
    • When you're the little brother, sometimes things are not easier said...
