REBECCA ON THE BUS

(10 Minutes; 3 women) Click Here for PDF Copy

Oh, that Rebecca, always running late. This time, when she meets her friends at their local coffee spot, her unexpected (or is it?) excuse pulls back the curtain on what living in a rape culture could really mean. Rebecca on the Bus is a dark comedy about a most absurd reality.

ON TUESDAY

(10 Minutes; 2 women, 1 either gender) Click Here for a PDF Copy

A play with an end which considers possibilities, On Tuesday takes a dark and slanted look at our innate desire to have some control over the events and people around us, to make a connection and have an impact. The play’s absurdist overtones lay bare our overwhelming need to make sense of the inconceivable, in any way we can.

BUYING A HOUSE

(20 Minutes; 2 women, 1 man) Click Here for PDF Copy

Buying a House is a dark comedy about money, women and place, in that order. A single woman sits at a bar, single-malt in hand, waiting to take a monumental, life-altering step: she is buying a house. But it’s a man’s world. And that last cocktail may be one too many.

 COLOR SEPARATION

(10 Minutes, 2 women, 1 man) Click Here for PDF Copy

At the heart of Color Separation is a couple contemplating an important decision… at a time when the world is connected in very revealing ways and the meaning of “choice” takes on heavier and heavier implications. The dark comedy is a somewhat surreal look at what happens when we let people into our lives, time runs out, and we take what’s been given to us for granted.

ABOUT WHAT MATTERS

(10 Minutes; 2 women) Click Here for PDF Copy

About What Matters is a short, pointed play about, among other things, priorities, boundaries, certainties and letting life get to you. Waiting together for an acknowledgement that may never come, two friends find themselves caught up in a dangerously circular game of logic and loyalties, as they realize they’ve probably missed lunch.
