  • Goodbye, Bobby
    22 May. 2020
    Williams give us a well-written insight into the mind of a writer and his/her characters and their relationship. It is a very particular kind of relationship - not precisely like a child and parent because characters and their writers can be equals. And it's in equals that the fun begins!

    Wyndham has caught a teen's pain - not meaningless but true heartbreak - in this monologue of a swimmer. Our swimmer experiences his loss in this fine piece of writing.
  • Stamina
    19 May. 2020
    A delightful story with such well-fleshed out characters -- You know they've known each other forever. The humor is delightful. This play is written by the sure hand of Donna Kaz. Looking forward to more.

    A snapshot of life that makes all the difference. Well-written by Lermond.

    Oh, I like this a lot. It is direct but surprises you still. Sisters. Keep it in mind. Lermond hits home with this understated story.
  • Belle, ex-wife of a Beast
    19 May. 2020
    Lots of fun to hear what REALLY happened to Belle. Fun for a festival and certainly for an actress to go to town with!
  • Bulletproof Love
    19 May. 2020
    This is a form of love that is out there in our world but so rarely written about. It is not trivialized or cliche - it has boundless depth and width and height and there is not a word that can express it - unless you listen to the words of Scott Sickles that he has created for his characters. Wickedly delicious.
  • Fable
    19 May. 2020
    A look at what ultimately became the musical, Gypsy, through the eyes of June. We can see how a fable was created from truth via a fable! Fable ponders if the truth really matters. There are different responses to this question. A huge Gypsy fan, this resonated with me a lot. The carousel of sniping between mother, daughters and creators is the motor of the story. This would be a great companion to Gypsy or certainly an enlightening piece to accompany a biographical musical writing seminar. Mr. De Vita's knowledge of show biz brings this story to an entertaining life.
  • Bitter Cherries (10-15 min.)
    19 May. 2020
    What opens as a youthful rite of passage between best friends gets more complicated as feelings and the past emerge into the present. These are great roles for teens and should be done in high schools and festivals everywhere. Well done, Rice!
  • Snug Harbor (10 min.)
    19 May. 2020
    Esther and Sam are caught in transition - a limbo full of expectations and disappointment. But they connect in this and maybe find their first respite in a long time with someone who actually sees them. This is a connection that Rice captures very well.
