Awww, The Magic of a Full Moon! by Marilyn Smith. A man and woman bump into each other. Is this by accident, or is it fate? The relationship grows from that first encounter to drinks at a bar, through the first fight, and finally towards reconciliation. As they converse with each other, the audience gets to hear their private thoughts to what the other just said. The humorous differences between the opposite sexes leave open the question of the pull of universal forces on relationships.
TBD, by Hank Schwemmer. Hank Schwemmer will do a thing. All else is conjecture.
Las Cosas Insignificantes, written and performed by Alex Garza. Drama, Drama, Drama! "Dysfunctional family" doesn't even begin to describe them. Ever heard the expression "don't cry over spilt milk?" Well, this family does. ALL THE TIME! In the house of the Tres Leches Family, it's the little things that mean the most . . . and create the most turmoil! At the center of this melodramatic tribe is Kristina Tres Leches, the matriarch, who struggles to keep her family together amidst all the drama. Thrown into the mix are a cast of zany characters, including El Chiquito de Las Montanas, the adopted son who was raised in the wild. Let's see what drama the latest episode brings.
Mean Mean Streets: The 21 Souvenirs, by Brian Wittenbrook. In a city on edge, a criminal, a broken-hearted lover, a former child star, and others hold the secrets behind the brutal murder of a prominent local businessman. Mean Mean Streets: The 21 Souvenirs is a series of interlocking monologues from a comically noir hellscape filled with crime, misfortune, and elaborate cookie bouquets.
