The Plays

Anything For You
by Cathy Celesia

A dramatic piece with plenty of humor. Happily married Lynette interrupts her friend Gail’s small talk to declare, "I have to have an affair." What starts out as banter between best friends soon escalates to a test of their friendship.

Executive Dance
by Joe DiPietro

Young executives caught up in corporate "team building" activities, wind up dancing with each other.

The Individuality of Street Lamps
by Anna K. Gorisch

A woman who's lost her boyfriend to another woman must confront him, his lingering interest and her feelings before she can move on.

Dancing With a Devil
by Brooke Berman

A young woman's life is transformed by a brutal stranger. Two actresses show how she deals with the event that changed her life, then and now.

Seeing the Light
by Robert McKay

Will this missile silo unit react to a potential emergency with cool efficiency or crack under pressure?

Brights
by David Smilow

A devilishly entertaining comedy of middle-class people in bizarre situations. Three friends are stuck riding in a car with a paranoid driver, who unravels at the wheel while his fiancé keeps up a colorful commentary.
