The Staged Readings
SPUYTEN DUYVIL by Andy Bragen
Struggling to keep their heads above water in the face of demanding relationships and difficult ambitions, Buddy Starlight and Lisa Martinez find that their only hope lies in each other. But can they come to terms with the dangerous desires and appetites that have come to define their identities before they tear themselves and each other apart?
ALL FIRES ARE BEAUTIFUL IF YOU CAN’T SEE WHAT IS BURNING by Juliann France
Clara's drive through a forbidden area opens her eyes, and suddenly her everyday world of whale-eye chips, anteater tongues and family vacations to the "Ghost-town in the Sky Amusement Park" just don't make sense anymore. Hold on to your sense of reality as we join this futuristic, but strangely familiar, American family on a political and economic roller coaster of generational traditions.
GIRL SCIENCE by Larry Loebell
Lois, an up and coming historian, selects her great aunt Johanna, an eminent biologist and “forgotten pioneer of science” as the subject for her new book. Reluctant at first, Johanna soon relents, sharing stories from her seemingly charmed girlhood. But was it? When Lois’s work inadvertently reveals the startling and tragic truth, both women’s lives are changed forever.
I BECOME A GUITAR by Francesca Sander
Adrift in a 20+ year marriage, Kevin dreams of baseball, while Madrigal dreams of her ancestors in Zihuatenejo until Pablo, with stories of his idyllic life in South America, appears and launches them on a journey that will take them to Honduras and back, Mexico and back and, if they can make it, to love and back.
