  • OLD COWBOY CHUCK: A MONOLOGUE FOR A GAY SENIOR
    16 Nov. 2018
    Another true voice from Asher Wyndham. Old Cowboy Chuck is a man who wants nothing more than to be accepted and “live in peace with my pistachios.” A moving piece.
  • Barbie Throws a House Party!
    15 Nov. 2018
    Fun short play that shows Barbie and Skipper in a whole new light.
  • THE GROOM'S A FAG; THE BRIDE'S A CUNT; THE BEST MAN'S A WHORE; AND THE MAIDEN OF HONOR (JUST) HUNG HERSELF IN THE CLOSET
    14 Nov. 2018
    The title of this play cries sensationalism, but this play is so much more. Walker shows the deep emotions of the characters that drive them to actions beyond their control. A fascinating human study.
  • Girl Dolls
    14 Nov. 2018
    In just ten short pages, Hageman creates a world where AI is new, yet accepted. A world that extends metoo to the next level. Stark and moving.
  • A Real Boy
    14 Nov. 2018
    A brilliant play and spell binding play. Kaplan creates a world using humor and driving dialog that pulls you in and keeps you on the edge of your seat.
  • PERMISSION
    13 Nov. 2018
    From the first word, you are in the room with this mother and daughter. This is a real conversation happening in dining rooms today. The fear. The desire for there to be no need to fear. Carnes says all this in five minutes.
  • TWO BUNNIES TALKING
    13 Nov. 2018
    A play that encourages personal social responsibility without being preachy. A great way to start a conversation about why people don’t vote.
  • ELEVATOR GIRL
    13 Nov. 2018
    Powerful. Hoke tells a story that grabs you immediately and takes you through more emotional layers than any elevator could, Brava!
  • A People [a mosaic play]
    4 Nov. 2018
    A beautiful tapestry woven from laughter and tears. Poetic and epic. Each vingette touches the heart and raises questions, but moves so fluidly into the next, that the reader is hardly aware that fleeting glimpse has shifted.
  • Bottle Fly
    4 Nov. 2018
    A haunting play that both kicks you in the gut and takes you beyond ordinary human emotions. Raw, yet polished. Readers should take a deep breath before reading, because they won't exhale until ten minutes after the last word.
