About the Plays...
The beautiful Kelli can't wait for the blind date her friends have set her up on. Until it turns out to be one very disappointed lesbian named Arlin. Mutually appalled yet appallingly intrigued, Kelli & Arlin proceed to pull the screws loose on both straight and gay women's culture the find the common ground beneath in the search for love & self. (50 minutes.)
THE LAST NICKEL
A theatrical, funny and touching dramedy. It's another long night forJamie with an obnoxious sister and a trio of sardonic puppets to keep her awake. Tinged with fun & sisterly nostalgia, the merriment comes inexorably to focus on the cause of Jamie's sleepless night, and the loss that has brought her to the edge. (45 minutes.)
FRIENDS OF THE DECEASED
An embittered widow lies in wait at her husband's graveside for the appearance of his mistress, and encounters an irreverent teen . Unable to extract a confession from the girl, the widow offers to buy one, and finds that she has purchased a deeper truth. (20 minutes.)
