THE MAN: A man with a deformed face, hidden beneath a crude mask. In his late 30's.

Tempus Fugit by Greg Atkins – Tempus Fugit is a Latin phrase, usually translated into English as “time flies”. And may we also add “when you’re having fun”?

Nearly Departed by Michael Waterson – Meeting death can be disappointing. Which, when you think of it, is probably a good thing. Right? STEVE 50, Well dressed business man REAPER Male or female, indeterminate age, ragged, Chaplin-like.
Runed by Jonathan Josephson – A spoof of M.R. James’ short story “Casting the Runes”, and that is all we are liberty to say about it, other than to say Runed is a most delightfully diabolical play. Enjoy! Bunning - 30s Winkle - 30s Payton - 50s Farswell - 30s Casting Note: The characters are written as men but they can easily be played by women with gendered pronouns changed.
The Action Hero’s Wife by Michael Higgins - A woman trapped inside a Hollywood action movie tries to break free of the clichés that define her life. Haven’t we all been there at least once or twice? KAM. Male. 20s-40s. A big city police detective. Heroic in the style of an action movie star. WILLIAMS. Male. 20s-50s. Kam's by-the-book partner. Also straight out of action movie land. LAURA. Female. 20s-40s. Kam's good-hearted wife. Bored with her life inside a male-oriented, Bechdel Test-failing drama. TATIANA. Female. 20s-40s. A member of a criminal organization. Russian accent.
The Chip by Michael Higgins - The Chip is a comedy about a struggling artist 90 years in the future. To earn extra money, she allows an advertising firm to insert a computer chip in her head. But the effects on her romantic life are unsettling…to say the least. REBISSA. Female. 20s/30s. A struggling artist. VANDER. Male. 20s/30s. A man who screens potential astronauts.
The Window by Tristen Canfield – It’s a delightful play about a cat and a fish. FISH A free spirit with a zest for life and a love of new things. Open age, open gender. CAT A philosopher who tends toward the morose. Open age, open gender.
