Seventeen Stitches by Tara Meddaugh: 

Cast Break Down: 1M (16-24), 1F (16-24)

Play Length: 25 Minutes

Synopsis: Two teenagers meet in a vortex-like space between opposing lines of people. While Rachel is simply passing the time before she returns to her place in line, Peter has stepped out of his line in protest. As the lines begin to close in on them, he must make a life-altering decision by choosing to continue forging his path in his father’s line, or join the haunting allure of Rachel’s line, the “line of diamonds.”

We Are Close Family written and directed by Craig Thornton:

Cast Break Down: 1M (25-54), 2F (25-54)

Play Length: 45 Minutes

Synopsis: This award-winning one-act play is the story of a startlingly dysfunctional family. Told in five scenes over eighteen years– not, however, in chronological order – WE’RE A CLOSE FAMILY explores themes of the lost father, familial and individual identity, and forgiveness and loss. A disturbing comedy that has momentum even when it’s going back in time, it often poses the question: is it really better to have a family if it’s this family? 

Sandcastle Man by Linsey Watkins:

Cast Break Down: 1M (55+), 1F (16-24)

Play Length: 10 Minutes

Synopsis: Isa is a teenager who has just moved in with her grandmother in a small beach town. Conroy is a man in his 70's who moved to the town after retirement and became ‘The Sandcastle Man’. Isa meets Conroy the day after she wrecks one of his castles. The Sandcastle Man is a 10 minute play about how we balance grief, pain and the joy of unlikely friendships. What happens when we choose creation instead of destruction?
