Crossroads Coffee by Stephen Kilduff
Directed by Miriam Bazensky
Patti imagined her coffee shop as a crossroads where arty and intellectual people would meet, but what she got was a sleepy hangout for the lonely, the listless, and the lost. But when Alli walks in one night and turns a few heads, the whole dynamic of the place becomes, well, dynamic.
Corpus Dramatis by Lance Woods
Directed by Rodney Bonds
The manager/director of a struggling playhouse contacts a college friend she hasn't seen in 20 years who's an award-winning, recently widowed playwright of thrillers. He provides her with a sure-fire hit and comes out to the playhouse in person to help her mount and promote the play. It would have the ingredients of a terrific reunion except for one problem: this guy isn't her college pal. Now she's determined to unmask the "mystery writer" and find out what he's done to her true friend (and his late wife) while trying to wrangle her actors & crew, putting on the play and saving her theatre.
The Main Chance by Barry Weinberg
Directed by Percy Thomas
It's Africa. It's now. It's two civil war combatants fighting to become the country's first elected president against a landscape of intrigue, romance and a fight for U.S. money. Seven people are caught up in a deadly competition that will determine the direction of the country for years to come. For all of them this is their main chance.
