PLAY SUMMARIES

In a Bottle by Daniel Carlyon:

The pressure of a black hole is nothing next to the pressure surrounding Linda and Mark, as they struggle to find a place where they can be happy together in this story of love, loss and the universe.

Leave by Jacob Devine

A young soldier on leave from Iraq receives an unexpected visitor during a layover: his boyfriend. Forced to confront their crumbling relationship, the two men look back on how it all started- and if it will end.

At The End by Samantha Egle

Individuals share their stories after experiencing the world and time beyond the normal spectrum of observation. Then the time comes to choose a door, but can they?

Just Passing by by Seth Garben

Somewhere in the void, two men take it upon themselves to eulogize a dead woman. Realizing they aren’t suited for the task, they search their empty world for a priest, but are surprised by who actually shows up.

Love and Jealousy at the Casa Rosso by Ben Gojer

Come one, come all, live sex at the Casa Rosso! Just how naked are Willem and Abrienda without their clothes? A thought on the sex life of sex stars.

The Soldier’s Home by Rohan Lewis

A soldier comes home from Iraq only to discover that home is no longer the romanticized place where spouses and children live happily. Something has gone wrong in the household since the soldier’s return; the trauma of war has undone the family.

Something About The Nighttime by Ilana Pena

At a fast food restaurant in the middle of the night, layers fall away. A Frymaker peels potatoes, strangers meet, and, somewhere, a murderer is on the loose. More than potatoes can be peeled when doors are suddenly locked.

White Identity Play by Tristan Powell

It’s never easy being different. Today is the day that Boy, 15, has
decided to tell his parents something that he has been keeping a
secret: he’s white.

Blank Maps by Jordan Puckett

In a single taxi kind of town, a young boy and his cab driver discover their need for human connection in the midst of a tragedy and that the journey is just as important as the destination.

Can I See Your Face by Aaron Ricciardi

BROWNEYEDGUY30 meets RUGBYJOCK18 in a chat room. Click. Thus begins an internet romance of dirty cams and sweet mics, the vehicles for digital kisses and hyperlinked dates. These two guys think that they fall in love on Skype, an outlet for closeted cravings that, twenty years ago, went unfulfilled. But what happens when there’s a meet-up, and this world of digital fiction collides with the world on plain reality? What are we responsible for: emoticons or emotions?
