 90 Days

 by Elizabeth Meriwether/Directed by Kristen O’Neil

Elliot is in rehab for drug addiction. When his girlfriend, Abby, calls to check in on him, their chat wanders from half-truth to miscommunication, with some awkward phone seduction mixed in. This short and funny staged phone call shows the first tentative steps towards fixing a relationship, starting with tater tots and a failed excuse for a teapot.

ELLIOT – Ryan Ayars

ABBY – Arden Chaucer


Hearing Aid  by Pete Barry/Directed by Katie Pace

The Old Man and the Old Woman have been married for forty-two years. But age and hearing loss are starting to affect their communication. They question whether their marriage is working anymore but the strength of their love for each other speaks louder than words.

OLD MAN– Micah Bryant

OLD WOMAN– Erica Shapiro


Hail Ceasar  by Michael Mitnick/Directed by Britni McNeill

A waitress named Tali ends up taking the order of one very strange man named Will, who is dining alone. With a knack for going off on rants, Will can’t seem to decide whether to order food, talk about his ex, or discuss the benefits of being Julius Caesar. Tali struggles between being polite and listening to Will, and trying to escape his quirky ranting to go get his order filled.

WILL:  Michael Pipicella

TALI: Madalyn Schipporeit


Heads and Tails by Kelly Rhodes/Directed by Maddy Schipporeit

 Two roomates, Shawna and Lillian, enlist the audience’s help in determining which roommate is crazier.
