    Nora Louise Syran beautifully creates an atmosphere filled with international romance, language, and holiday joy. You'll want a sip of eggnog and a cuddle while reading "That Wasn't Mistletoe."
  • Gown

    "Gown" is a genuine tearjerker that takes its time to reveal the truth behind what seems an everyday scenario. Robert Weibezahl's short drama was one of my favorite plays in the 2023 MadLab Roulette festival in Columbus, Ohio.

    I love this play. Fantastic, epic science fiction told at the most intimate scale by Monica Cross.
  • Imaginary You (Bascom & Isaac #3)
    11 Dec. 2023
    No one dramatizes intimacy -- physical, emotional, intellectual -- between characters like Scott Sickles. The realities in "Imaginary You (Bascom & Isaac #3)" feel like unexplored territory in theatre, and I'm glad Scott is helping audiences navigate it.
  • Intricacies, Death and the Oxford Comma

    Silly, frothy fun. :) "Intricacies, Death and the Oxford Comma" is pure "What if?" situation with a royal twist and a punctuation lesson. it would be a lot of fun to see a production of this Scott Sickles comedy.
  • Din Din
    2 Dec. 2023
    I shivered reading "Din Din." Greg Mandryk's perfect, short horror leveraged my expectations of storytelling tropes and turned my assumptions into goose bumps. "Din Din" would be a standout at any short play festival, especially those with horror themes.

    Horror done very well: increasing by degrees as the play goes on. The audience knows something is a little wrong to begin, then things turn more and more wrong. But by that time, there's no escape. Greg Mandryk has pulled you in with "Unknown Number."
  • Stay Golden
    24 Nov. 2023
    This daffy comedy is a love letter to women's friendships that border on being sociopathic, "The Golden Girls" TV show and the sitcom lifestyle. Audiences are going to love this play with roles for mature actors.
  • Ava Maria
    23 Nov. 2023
    This short comedy is absolutely ridiculous in the best way possible. Ann Flanagan shows the audience two awful human beings competing with one another with the most outlandish lies. "Ava Maria" is a comic gem audiences will love.
  • Why Did You Bother Killing the Sea Witch?
    22 Nov. 2023
    I love how Jenna Jane bursts the everlasting-love-at-first-sight bubble. This is a smart and funny spoof; audiences are going to recognize the original material immediately and enjoy to the final moment.
