Interval

Synopsis:
the setting for Interval is a city park surrounded by office buildings and apartment houses. Into this setting, comes Lenore, a secretary, for lunch each day. She's chosen this solitary place because of a comfortable bench and a shaft of sunlight. Her solitude is shattered when Alan becomes part of the scene. This casual encounter develops into a friendship that encourages the pair to discuss problems in their lives as well as their interest and lack of interest in religious faith. each scene takes place on a different day, while their relationship unfolds and a seeming murder mystery develops. While the audience may be led to believe that the story will lead to a romantic end, in fact Lenore and alan's relationship is more about fulfilling spiritual needs.

John, His Story

Synopsis:
another volume in the a.D. Players script series, the Players performed John, His Story in an off-Broadway New York run in 1998. the four-person, full-length script is a retelling of the miracles described in the fourth Gospel.
