  • A Song of Bucephalus
    6 Jun. 2022
    James Odin Wade entwines the story of Alexander the Great's famous horse with the vaudeville tradition of the two-man horse costume,,,but they're both the buts! All wafted on mounds of lovely and funny word play. Bravo Bucephalus!
  • Every Creeping Thing
    16 Apr. 2022
    Every Creeping Thing is such good fun with beautifully layered (or should I say stratified?) humor. Ten minutes of pre-disaster delight. Thank you Mr, Beardsley

    This wonderful short play is like a three-way tennis game. the words are balls being endlessly lobbed between the three players. We are the net watching the flights of delightful non-sequiturs. The final score is: love-plus?
  • Waitering for Godot
    11 Mar. 2022
    Mr. Bonafede has wonderfully and wittily skewered Beckett. now I' like to see him do the same favor for Pinter. Waitering For Godot is a classic ten-minute satire.
  • The Unjust Sound of Unseen Waves
    7 Feb. 2022
    Thankyou Scott Sickles for creating the sense of wonder that is what theatre should be about. If I have to read another NPX play about ordinary people inhabiting maudlin scenes. I will vomit. Besides imagining extraordinary creatures, you have offered sound designers an ultimate test. Bravo!

    This delightful riff of Noel Coward's Private Lives lacks only one equivalent of Coward's best line: "Don't quibble Sybil." May I suggest "Let's go bedward Edward. Ten pages of good gay fun.
  • The Damage
    31 Jan. 2022
    The Damage is done...and done very well. Jacob Devine has smoothly blended lifetimes of deceit and revenge into ten minutes of knife-edged celluloid cynicism.
  • Scones (or, Macbeth Part II)
    29 Dec. 2021

  • murmurs
    23 Nov. 2021
    Murmurs is a lovely gentle play about two boys discovering truths. I read it with both quiet joy and a tear or two. You will too. And "murmurs" has so many meanings.
  • Stop Laughing Without Me
    23 Nov. 2021
    I love it when playwrights know how walk the tightrope of writing down the middle, and Philip Middleton Williams brilliantly lives up to his second name. Both playwright and producer are both wrong and right in this clash of wills...but in the final analysis I'll side with the one who can laugh.
