Bed, The

Synopsis:
the Bed is a tribute to strength, commitment, and undying love. Set in New York in the early 1980s, this tender story opens on the wedding night of Joe and Sara Isaia. While Sara eagerly anticipates an extravagant wedding gift from her new husband, Joe presents her instead with a refurbished three-quarter sized bed. Although a disappointment at first, it is ultimately the bed that remains the one constant in Joe's and Sara's life. Through affectionate banter and bitter arguments, infidelity and recommitment, the bed offers a sanctuary to the couple even into their deaths.

Christmas In Montana

Synopsis:
Over eighty one-room schools still exist today in Montana. This is a ten-minute comedy about one such school. Miss Rugamyer is a semi-retired school teacher from a Brooklyn, New York private school, who travels to Big Timber, Montana to substitute teach for eight weeks. On her first day of class, it is twenty below zero outside, and only three students, ages 14, 12 and 8, all related to one another, show up for school. Expecting to teach these country mice "the old school" ways of the world, Miss Rugamyer soon finds that the students, Hank, Cynthia and Sweet Pea, have a few things to teach her besides sibling rivalry and that their former teacher, Ms. Merker-Chavez was quite the feminist. When Miss Rugamyer rehearses carols with them for an upcoming Christmas program, the students point out to her that it is politically correct to call it a "Holiday Season Program" and they take issue with most, if not all, of the songs that she plans to use

Frosty Mug, A

Synopsis:
the absurdity of life is wonderfully depicted during a simple trip to the grocery store. George is a tall, heavyset man in his 50s who gets a sudden urge to run down to the local supermarket to buy some beer. His wife, Emma, waits for him in the car. In the beer section of the store, he is delighted to find that his favorite beer is on sale, but his excitement turns to anger when he learns at the check out that the price was mismarked and the product, therefore, was not on sale after all. Eliciting the support of other customers, many of them foreigners, George lambastes the manager, Matt, and Nellie, the cashier, for not honoring the sale price. Adding a laundry list of other complaints about the store's deceptive marketing practices he rallies the other customers to join his protest, drawing correlations to the spirit of "911" gone awry. Matt and Nellie, in their twenties, have a crush on each other and are more interested in furthering their relationship than in dealing with disgruntled customers, but they try their best to appease George, admitting that they made a mistake in the beer's posting but steadfast in their resolve not to discount the beer for fear of losing their distributorship. Eventually wife Emma enters and unloads on George for leaving her out in her car for such a long time. She sides with Matt, the manager, and belittles George for being so "cheap." An elderly female customer with a cane enters at the end of the scene and lays the argument to rest. the play is ten pages in length and of approximately ten minutes' running time, with four main characters and up to four extras who revolve in and out of the scene, playing various customers.
