  • In the dark times, will there also be singing?
    31 Jan. 2021
    I was so lucky to catch a reading of this play by the talented team at Un-American Blackbox. Set in an alternate America, Dianne Nora has written a play with a fascinating crew of compelling characters and a story that’ll keep you guessing. Dark, weird, thought-provoking and I loved every minute of it. Can’t wait to see where this play goes!
  • Eating Crayons
    30 Jan. 2021
    Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The crayon eaters.

    In ‘Eating Crayons,’ three characters “wax” philosophical about the times they munched on crayons as children. Add in a Chorus to add some ‘color’ commentary, and you get a nostalgic, funny, and imaginative ten-minute play! Well done!
  • Spilled Tea
    30 Jan. 2021
    I was fortunate to hear a reading of Harper Lee’s “Spilled Tea” by Theatre Unmasked. Lee has written an beautifully honest portrayal of family and the individual struggle between ‘putting family first’ and ‘living your own life.’
  • Free Will
    30 Jan. 2021
    I was a able to see a production of this play by the students at LaSalle High School. A clever show pitting God vs Death in an argument about Will and Free Will. Full of witty dialogue and some laugh out loud lines, this play is a welcome addition to any short play fest.
  • Of the World
    30 Jan. 2021
    Was fortunate to see a production of “Of the World” by LaSalle High School. A beautiful and honest play, it was powerful to see these students bring this story to life on the stage.
  • Pangea (Part Two of The Second World Trilogy)
    15 Jan. 2021
    I was lucky to catch a reading of this play by Roly Poly Productions. After Marianas Trench, Sickles has done it again with Part Two of The Second World Trilogy. A beautiful play. Andy & Lincoln’s relationship coming together as the world (literally) falls apart will tug at your heart strings and have you eager for Part Three. Fantastic play. Bravo, Scott Sickles!
  • I Don't Want To End Up As A Douchebag Character In One Of Your Plays: A Play
    1 Jan. 2021
    Like the shortest episode of Fleabag ever. Love it.
  • Tooth Or Dare
    29 Dec. 2020
    Negative reviews can tank a brand, even if that brand is a household name. Emily McClain has written is an incredibly silly and fun play about one of the most famous magical beings: the Tooth Fairy. With the pandemic keeping us in social bubbles, this could be a great play for a family of actors. Read it. Produce it. But whatever you do, DO NOT leave this Tooth Fairy play a bad review.
  • The Wolves
    16 Dec. 2020
    I know I’m late to The Wolves party but what a truly incredible play! I was lucky to see Philadelphia Theatre Company’s production. The Wolves runs 90 minutes but I could listen to DeLappe’s characters and dialogue for hours. This play is powerful and important with the perfect combination of humor and heart. Absolutely brilliant!
  • 800 Miles
    4 Dec. 2020
    After dropping their son off at college, two new empty nesters discuss whether they want to spend the rest of their lives together. Emma Goldman-Sherman has written a truly beautiful play packed with emotion, heart, and humor. 800 Miles has two fantastic characters for adult actors to explore and make their own. Bravo!
