Criminal Roulette

Synopsis:
Criminal Roulette is a mystery/comedy which will keep the audiences guessing right up until the curtain call. Is John really trying to steal his own Picasso painting to collect on the insurance? Or is he after the neighbor's jewels? Do the old neighbor ladies really have valuable jewelry, or are they just trying to steal the Picasso for themselves? Is Darlene the clumsiest cat burglar ever, or is she as she claims, a "cat burner"? Will the police officer stop these crimes in time? But most importantly, who is the real police officer?

Unturned Stone

Synopsis:
When CHRIS, a high school student, isn't able to attend the funeral of his best friend, James, he decides to hold a farewell party at the grave site. Attending the party with Chris are six of James' closest friends: KAtheRINE, an intelligent but "ditzy" girl; SARAH, the new kid at school; BETTY and LARRY, soon to be married; LISA, James' ex-girlfriend; and TILLMAN, the class brain. the group quickly discovers that they don't know each other very well - James was the common bond between them. As the play progresses, each person reveals what he meant to them. To some it was small - the shared love of bad music - to some it was important - the only friend in an abusive world - but he changed the life of each of them. With unforced dialogue and a smooth flow of encounters, the play has a simple, natural feel. This one-act has already taken several high school performers to competition. A real ensemble cast play with a simple setting.
