  • You Can Still Call Me Grandma
    30 Jun. 2023
    This mono opens a crate full of reactions. There is so much emotion, heartache--reality--packed into this short piece. I wanted this to go on for pages, but the way it is now makes you wonder, think, sympathize with both the narrator and the teenager. A beautiful, honest call for love.
  • The Fist of Branding
    13 Jun. 2023
    Umm. Wow. Just. Wow. Fit for a select audience or best for most unsuspecting crowds. I literally howled at this one. Hilarious, embarrassing (it hurts to just observe, really), and not a wasted word or gag anywhere. Not to mention tons of fun for the costume designer.
  • Second Thoughts
    13 Jun. 2023
    Just wondering how many times in "real life" this has happened. Because it's not impossible in the least. Mr. LeBlanc has captured a tragic situation and mined it for every ounce of hilarity and absurdity available. A beautiful piece for two game actors eager to bounce off each other. Rings with a sad truth, as well, and that what makes the comedy so sharp.
  • Getting to Know You
    25 May. 2023
    An excellent 2-hander for a night of gay-friendly work. Two real characters, each smartly drawn, working out crossed signals. Could it be a wretched beginning to something more, or is it a one-time mistake? Excellent script for two strong actors.
  • For a Man Your Age
    25 May. 2023
    The Pump and Grind Coffee Shop. Just gonna leave that here. Love both characters here, so natural, so honest (and how often does *that* happen*?) and so naturally gifted with sparkling wit. And yet...the truth about aging is not funny at all. Rage, rage...yes, but be prepared for reality. A wonderful 2-hander for men of a certain age.
  • Let Them Eat Cake (from the THE WRINKLE RANCH AND OTHER PLAYS ABOUT GROWING OLD collection)

    A beautiful moment; touching, bittersweet, and shows the power of enduring love.

    Once again, Ms. Cole gives us an endearing and fun comedy--a joy for two actors to bounce back and forth--and ends with an unpredictable but beautiful moment. Well done!
  • Divine Truth
    6 May. 2023
    A question of faith; should one follow a text without question, or one's own instincts and desires? And what happens when physical ailments come into play? Deb Cole raises these questions effectively and judiciously, examining a family's time of crisis when every family member must decide which path to follow. A superb drama for engaged audiences.
  • Coffee House Boos
    25 Mar. 2023
    Just when you thought reality tv had seen it comes Haunted Hangouts, a below-low budget trash tv program that invades a small-town coffee shop looking for *anything* supernatural. What they find is surprise after surprise, leading to a finale that, up until they arrived, hadn't had the ghost of chance. A raucous short for enthusiastic performers!

    A hard play to read, but a message of hope that resonates.
