Senior Bryan Bowen directs four short plays, all written by David Ives.
In The Sure Thing, a chance meeting of Betty and Bill is continually reset by the sound of a ringing bell;
Variations on the Death of Trotsky shows us the Russian revolutionary on the day of his demise, desperately trying to cope with the mountain-climber’s axe he’s discovered in his head;
English Made Simple depicts a young man and woman whose immediate romantic attraction is translated into comically unromantic grammar lessons;
The Other Woman is a dark drama of sexual obsession within a marriage, as Thomas’s sleepwalking wife, Emma, becomes his mistress without knowing it.
Senior Brandon Richards directs four short plays from the collection Trepidation Nation.
In Down to Sleep, distant sisters Anne and Ellen confront the reason why neither of them can sleep
the night before their father’s funeral;
I Am Not Alone finds suicidal Justin interrupted by the appearance of a hapless pizza deliveryman on a tight schedule;
Soon after surviving a bloody car crash, a Hollywood producer is terrified of picking up her cell phone again in Euxious;
In Yes, a man strives to turn his fear into love through flowers and public disrobing.
