Plays

  • Railbird
    Over a year ago, Trip beat the odds, winning more than money at a high-stakes poker game. Now, hosting a game of his own, he is again challenged by the same disrespectful, sore loser of an opponent. As cards are dealt, so too are old accusations, and, before long, the bitter rivalry erupts beyond the felt. It’s hearts versus diamonds, and the winner takes all — or so they think.
  • Him
    Toby tells Amber of the dark figure he has repeatedly encountered since the death of his previous girlfriend. Amber offers a logical explanation, but Toby knows what he saw. And what he saw, moments ago, was the mysterious figure lurking outside Amber’s window.
  • Flower Delivery
    Aaron delivers a bouquet of flowers to a beautiful young woman and manipulates the situation to create an unexpected moment.
  • The Dance
    Tereza is engaged to the love of her life, but past lies and a disapproving father will soon
    jeopardize her happily ever after.
