  • Maya & Eleanor
    8 Dec. 2019
    This is a short but powerfully strong piece about the bonds we form and link us together. We may struggle with loneliness, with depression and other struggles but having at least one person who connects to you is and can be a salvation.
  • Dead Spots
    8 Dec. 2019
    It is sometimes hard to deal with a plethora of issues in a good ten-minute play. Usually we find one theme and narrow in with laser like precision, but what playwright William Goodwin has done is taken one big issue (the opioid crisis) and used it as a catalyst to focus on the very real horror of a family trying to reconnect. The symbolism of the dead spots while on the phone is a powerful and striking metaphor.
  • Losing My Religion (in 140 Characters or Less)
    8 Dec. 2019
    This is a play about a nationally known hate group based out of Kansas and one woman's struggle with life long held beliefs. But more than that it is about faith and family and forgiveness. It is about the power of social media and how we can both trust and not trust our feelings. It is a powerful meditation on the struggle of ingrained beliefs and micro-rebellions culminating in a powerful conclusion. I love this play.
  • Phyllis Schlafly And The Imaginary Television Show
    8 Dec. 2019
    A long time ago, I worked in evangelical Christian Radio, pressing play on recorded screeds from the men like James Dobson and women like Phyllis Schlafly. I had no idea who Phyllis Schlafly was, except an older lady who argued against things I didn't think were so bad. I moved away, both in a religious sense and a political one, from those days, but the Eagle Forum was often on my mind. This short play though, enlightened me, to Ms Schlafly's life in a way that was unexpected, enlightening, horrifying, entertaining, and funny. Highly recommended.
  • Cassandra: A Ghost Story

    Haunting and a bit terrifying at times. A clever use of AI and a ghost while remaining wonderfully theatrical
