    There is someone for everyone. Queenie and Big Bad are a novel couple that belong in the same neighborhood as Gomez and Morticia. How gleefully evil they are is the romantic glue in their relationship. This is a delightful and would be so much fun to watch!

    Marcia Eppich-Harris accomplishes something fascinating in this 10-minute take on the classic tale of the Three Little Pigs by inviting us to see what happens after the Big Bad Wolf comes home to his Lady-McB-rivalling wife, Queenie. There's humor, there's intrigue, there's bad as good and good as bad and something delightful about something so evil. Impeccable short play!

    If Warner Brothers made a cartoon version of The Scottish Play, it might look a little something like this.

    There are SO MANY dynamics and themes happening here. From the celebration of evil and terror as primal masculinity to the examination of the motivations and perspectives of literary antagonists and all sorts of social, sexual, and political dynamics in between. Dissertations could be written!

    Most importantly, it’s entertaining as all get-out. Eppich-Harris has laid a groundwork of great roles for actors and tremendous inspration for makeup and costume designers. Possibilities abound!

    CONFESSIONS… will blow your house down!
