Madeline Puccioni is a “re-entry” playwright, delighted to be back at work after grading college English essays for 30 years.. She’s had a number of short plays produced in S.F., NYC, and L.A. recently, and is working on two longer plays and a screenplay at present. Madeline lives in Oakland with her husband Monroe, and two insane chihuahuas. She is a member of PlayGround SF, Towne Street Theatre L.A., PlayWrights Center SF, SF Olympians Festival, AAACT, Dramatists Guild and the International Centre for Women Playwrights.

Her first one-act, LAUNDROMAT, was produced by the Julian Theatre in 1980 and published in Shameless Hussy Press. Her first full-length, “TWO O’CLOCK FEEDING,” was produced in 1985 at the Magic Theatre in SF and published in West Coast Plays. This year, her 10 minute play, THE INTERVIEW, was produced at the Towne Street Theatre, L.A., in February, and again in June, in the SHEHEREZADE FESTIVAL at The Exit Theatre in S.F. Her 10 minute chihuahua comedy, YAPPY HOUR, was produced at The Players Theatre, NYC, in its Valentine’s Day Festival, SexFEST, in February 2014.

Her 10 minute play, DARK WINDOWS , (which was short listed for the Vittum Award), had a fine six week production in Sept./Oct. 2014, in Pegasus Theatre’s Tapas Festival. Her first play for the SF Olympians, THE IMMORTAL WALLS OF TROY, was a finalist for the Stanley Drama Award. Her one act, GERTRUDE , (yes, THAT Gertrude) an Elizabethan-ish verse play and a “sequel” to Hamlet, was a finalist for the Windsor Fringe U.K., in June. Her new one act, THE THREE GRAEAE MEET PERSEUS AND A BANANA PEEL, had a staged reading at the Exit Theatre in SF last November, during the San Francisco Olympians Festival. She is now a member of PlayGround SF, Playwrights Center SF, The Towne Street Theatre Co. (L.A.), SF Olympians Festival, PlayCafe Berkeley, and PlayWrights Center Minn.

But unknown to Hecuba, Cassandra has been brutally raped by AJAX THE LESSER, and KING AGAMEMNON refuses to punish him. Cassandra vows to punish Ajax and every rapist she encounters, in every lifetime she returns. Is Professor Rupert Heywood’s death an accident, as present-day Cass Porter claims, or is it murder? Dr. Kate Wells, a Forensic Psychologist at Colusa State Hospital for the Criminally Insane, must evaluate Cass and determine whether she is actually insane, and therefore, ICST. (Incompetent to Stand Trial). Will Kate’s mysterious attachment to Cass affect her evaluation? Is there a “dark and evil secret” lurking at Colusa, as Cass predicts? And If there is --who will profit from it--and who will die?

    NOBU, an honored biwa hoshi, (travelling minstrel), grieves for his beloved SETSUMI and desires only to join her in death, even if he has to become a snow ghost, like she is. But SETSUMI wants him to find her little bones and consecrate them at the temple, so her spirit can travel to the Pure Land. Her bones have washed down to the bottom of the swift Shinano river and NOBU says he cannot find them; no one can. "One step at a time, dear husband," she counsels. "One day after the next." After a series of adventures NOBU arrives at the mighty river. The horrible river monster, NAMAZU, emerges and grabs him. NOBU promises to make her a goddess, and build her a shrine if she will help him go to the bottom of the Shinano River and find SETSUMI'S bones. "Get into my belly, where it is warm and dry," purrs NAMAZU. Should NOBU trust her? What if she's working with LORD SHINIGAMI, the Lord of Death?

    We are in GEORGIA DOUGLAS JOHNSON’S spacious living room in Washington D.C., in 1938. It is a meeting of her SATURDAY NIGHT SALON - called THE SATURDAY NIGHTERS - where she hosts struggling black artists, activists and writers, many of whom are or will be luminaries of the HARLEM RENAISSANCE. Tonight we meet OSWALD VILLARD, who co-founded the NAACP and co-edits the magazine CRISIS with W.E.B. du Bois; LANGSTON HUGHES ZORA NEALE HURSTON, a 37 year old anthropologist and novelist, just back from Haiti, where she has been studying Vodun and folk dialects. Du Bois has sent OSWALD with a list of possible cuts for Georgia’s play, AND YET THEY PAUSED, which is based on true events, involving the lynching of two men in Duck Hill, Mississippi. Georgia and her friends read the play, drink and squabble, and Georgia resists most of Oswald’s cuts and changes. “Oz” finally realizes the horror at the center of this play, and its importance: perhaps it alone can change how white people feel about lynching, and help pass the Wagner Anti Lynching Bill currently stalled in the Senate. But will lynching stop, even after the bill is passed? Has, in fact, lynching ever stopped? “Young black man has him a dream, white folks got to stop him somehow,” says Georgia’s Reverend Williams. “What happens to a dream deferred?” writes Langston, many years later.

    Who are we now, America? What have we become since Election 2016? Has the “American Dream” become a nightmare from which we cannot wake up?

    It is the year 2542. We are in the livingroom of Family 9479, Quarry Level 4, at dinnertime. Earth is dying, and the last of the water is pumped up from deep aquifers and sold in plastic bottles. Like most KochRoaches, Family 9479 are half human, half cockroach. They can survive on very little water, thanks to the miracle of recombinant DNA. They work the pumps, living in deep, rigidly controlled warrens. JUSTIN hopes to pass the LEVEL 3 exams and move his family up to LEVEL 3, but BABY LULU drinks all the water they have for the week, at dinner, as they are saying grace. An extra BOTTLE OF WATER will cost 15 Nestles, more than the Level 3 exam fee, for which they’ve all worked so hard to save. Can PAPA trade his GOLD WATCH to THE WATER MAN for the extra bottle of water? Or will MAMA and BABY LULU have to take matters into their own … pincers?
