DO NOT DISTURB


Alan is a conniver, always looking for the big break, the lucky investment, and the easy way out. This time he comes up against the closed door of “no.” Alan’s sister Marnie works hard, cares for their ailing mother and can’t forgive him for the deaths and deceptions of the past and contrivances of the present. When caretaker Zandra loses her lottery ticket, Alan is the prime suspect. This is a play about family, forgiveness and reconciliation. 2 Acts;  3F/1M; 1 Set

DIRECTING HEDDA


The Swan’s Song Theatre is about to close its doors if it can’t produce a successful play. Each of the Artistic Directors has hired a separate Director, independent of each other, to direct HEDDA GABLER. The newly hired directors have conflicting styles, one is a classicist the other a revisionist, and each of these two women have issues of their own. Most of the pre-cast show have fled to other productions except for the two female leads. 4F/2/M; 1Set
