|These plays have
been seen in two local showcases: The
Theatre Cooperative's Ritalin Readings
Boston Theatre Marathon, as well as
other venues across the country. The plays
are unique and challenging, funny and energetic.
They play with narrative and form, but are
also fun to act in.
Pitch was written in the fall of 2001.
It depicts two screenwriters feverishly
pitching their comic book action version
of the aftermath of September 11th. The
play is bold and challenging -- it pulls
no punches. It may be even more relevant
and timely now than when it was first written.
It's also a comedy, believe it or not.
Daughter is a narrative of an Asian
American girl named Carol stuck in Iowa
who is visited by her divorced mother. The
mother brings along her younger Caucasian
boyfriend. This odd combination plays havoc
with Carol's sense of the world as she relates
the story of the visit to the audience.
October is a comedy about the passion
of watching sports. A guy, his girlfriend
and his ex-girlfriend intently watch the
Red Sox in the seventh game of the World
Series. They come to believe that their
actions are directly affecting the game
that they're watching.
Things Have Changed
Have Changed is a dizzying narrative
spectacle of a play which traces the relationship
of two women over the course of a week.
Three narrators with wildly differing
viewpoints vie with one another on how
to tell their strange love story. The
play touches on Reality TV, the Big Dig,
the conversion of units to the metric
system, gay marriage, and most importantly,
10 years of these characters' lives.
