 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.

SHAWNA: Jamie Wheatley

LILLIAN: Britni McNeill

 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 – (20’s-30’s) An awkward, yet hard man who is in the last steps of his drug rehabilitation.

ABBY – (20’s-30’s) An awkward woman who has grown up in somewhat of a sheltered life; she tries to keep an affair secret from Elliot.

 

 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: Early 20s-30s, quirky, awkward, talks a lot, easily makes people uncomfortable but still maintains a certain charm with his quick wit and humorous rantings. Will deals with his own personal issues by projecting them onto anyone willing to listen with awkward conversation.

TALI: Early 20s-30s, Tali is quick witted in her own sense, giving Will a decent victim to have a random discussion with. She is mainly an innocent bystander, being thrown into Will’s awkward world. She tries her best to maintain composure as a waitress, but can’t help but be drawn in to the stranger’s weird charm.

 

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.

SHAWNA: Early 20s, Type A.  Shawna is Lilian’s passive-aggressive roommate.  She is defensive about her habits, and quick to accuse her roommate of infractions.

LILLIAN: Early 20s, Lillian is Shawna’s slightly messy roommate.  She is a normal college student.
