Synopsis and Characters Needed:
Roy and Bunny: one male, one female—Directed by Michele Donatich, Assistant Director Maggie Brown
Have you ever wondered what your pets were doing while you were out? Roy is a senior, but his reactions are quick. He can go from looking like he’s dead to 100% alertness in the blink of an eye. Bunny is also a senior and Roy’s partner. She is dissatisfied with her lot in life and dreams of once again escaping.
Unbalanced Force: two males, two females—Directed by Sandi Hrovatin
Bob White, a retired Allstate claims adjustor, and friend Chuck, a fashion disaster with a pocket protector, have set out to scientifically prove there is an alternate universe. Bob’s wife Doris has gone through one mental breakdown with Bob and is in denial that he might be heading for another one. Doris’ friend Shelly, single and stylish, arrives to pick up Doris for a makeover appointment but ends up exposing a dangerous part of Bob and Chuck’s alternate universe experiment.
The When I’m Gone Folder: three females—Directed by Maggie Brown
Three women, friends for many years, are employed by a local family-run winery in a small town. Their job is not only to work in the tasting room, but they are the tasters with the responsibility of writing up the “wine notes.” If this was an episode of the Golden Girls, Dale could possibly be Dorothy, Evie possibly could be Rose, and Betty could possibly be Blanche. This one-act is all about the good and challenging parts of friendship, family, and finality.
