​The one act plays are:

  • The Philadelphia by David Ives; Directed by Michele A. Mascari
    Celebrates and mocks how we cope with negativity and everyday hardship in the City of Brotherly Love. Two guys meet in a diner in New York, but they’re both in very different states of mind. Al is in a Los Angeles state of mind where nothing can faze him and, even if it did, he would just make it a Hollywood movie. Mark finds the whole world is against him. He can’t get a newspaper at the newsstand, aspirin at the drugstore and the diner gives him a cheesesteak when he wants a burger. He is trapped in a Philadelphia state of mind. It could be worse. You could be stuck in a Cleveland. It’s like death without the advantages.
    Cast: Jef Brown, Mark Motz and Kaitrin McCoy

 

  • The Next Level by A. K. Forbes; Directed by Dan Hawkins
    Trapped in between this world and the next, ghosts Lillian and Jay try to communicate with their grieving son Alex. Their efforts have little effect until Jay interferes with a video game and Lillian delivers a heart-felt note, allowing the whole family—Alex, Lillian and Jay—to move on.
    Cast: Helen Swartwout, Jim Swartwout and Zac Newman

 

  • Breaking and Entering by A. K. Forbes; Directed by John Wesseling
    A married couple’s attempt to spice up their love life with a role-playing game is inadvertently interrupted by an inexperienced burglar. The interruption creates a case of mistaken identity, leading the couple, Darryl and Penny, to reveal details about their troubled relationship and ultimately, toward healing.
    Cast: Jordon Schneider, Kaitrin McCoy and Nick Young

 

  • Bad Connection by A. K. Forbes; Directed by Denise Schnieders

    Cast: Dan Maloney & Meagan Blasch

  • The Other Room by Ariadne Blayde; Directed by Bob Brumberg
    Austin is a brilliant teenager astronomer who happens to have autism. Lily is his popular classmate who happens to have an interest in astronomy.
