  • Second Death of a Mad Wife
    5 May. 2018
    On the fringes of more well-known stories, McBurnette-Andronicos does her deep digging to unearth fascinating worlds of richly-drawn characters delivering new perspectives we had never considered existed. I never know what I will find in a KMA piece, but I know I will be immersed in a story that will stay with me long after the curtain closes.

  • Relationship Rehab
    3 Apr. 2018
    An all-too-true relationship struggle after a couples' retreat weekend. Cynthia uses a light touch to show us how difficult it is to make relationships work.
  • Welcome To The Gun Show
    28 Mar. 2018
    Part carnival barker, part used car salesman, the overeager gun salesman takes us through why we should "buy American," and in the process forces us to think about how we are compared to other nations when it comes to guns.

    This is the type of play I love--funny, yet meaningful. A real gem. (sorry...) I missed the reading of this at the Midwest Dramatists Conference, and I wish I hadn't. Sapio gives us the laughs, but then goes deeper to make us think about all the whys that could lead someone to this place.
  • The Windows
    20 Mar. 2018
    She went with the flow...

    Judith Pratt's beautiful imagery creates a painting with words as the character Vannie muses about her paintings' ability to take her away. Sorry I missed this reading at Midwest Dramatists Conference.
  • Locker Room
    8 Mar. 2018
    This is the first play I've read on NPX that sent me to the dictionary...

    A fun mashup of two competitive cultures imbued with as much testosterone that could be fit into this delightful shortie. Hageman uses the absurdity of the situation to show us the ridiculousness of our competitive and confrontational nature (that our society takes for granted). A winner.

    "People" are all the same... Sometimes we need others with extremely different ways of looking at things to give us some perspective, and that is what Andrew Heinrich gives us in this poignant and humorous one act.
  • Scripted (a ten minute play)
    27 Feb. 2018
    A delightful, complete play in ten minutes. Something we all can relate to that makes you laugh and think.
  • PSYCHOPSYCHOTIC, or, everyone at yale is a goddamn sociopath !!!
    26 Feb. 2018
    Stark, visceral, brutal. This is a play not easily forgotten.
