In this hilarious comedy, two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing "Scenes from Shakespeare" on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren't nephews, but nieces!
For such a small, out-of-the-way place, a picturesque waterfront village attracts some very interesting but peculiar drifters, including three elderly ladies who just happen to be on the run. Too Soon For Daisies is a dark and poignant comedy about three somewhat eccentric but determined women who have been cast off by society but aren't quite ready to be put out to pasture. They conceal a dark and horrifying secret about their charming little cottage that if revealed will upset all of their plans to grow old... ungracefully.
A mother from New Jersey roams the hills of Lockerbie Scotland, looking for her son's remains that were lost in the crash of Pan Am 103. She meets the women of Lockerbie, who are fighting the U.S. government to obtain the clothing of the victims found in the plane's wreckage. The women, determined to convert an act of hatred into an act of love, want to wash the clothes of the dead and return them to the victim's families. The Women of Lockerbie is loosely inspired by a true story, although the characters and situations in the play are purely fictional. Written in the structure of a Greek tragedy, it is a poetic dramsa about the triumph of love over hate. Winner of the silver medal in the Onassis International Playwriting Competition and the Kennedy Center Fund for New American Plays award.
It's almost Christmas - the season to be jolly - but things are going downhill fast at the Kendall's! Carl's been fired, the budget won't stretch far enough to cover gifts for everyone and Uncle Roscoe's due to arrive any day for a visit. As a matter of fact, a reasonable facsimile of Uncle has arrived, a bit prematurely, and brought his friend Kenny. He takes advantage of the mistaken identity and lends his expertise in solving family problems with dynamic energy and a joyously funny slant on life's challenges. Oh oh. The real Uncle Roscoe appears, but these two loveable 'con' men have already won the Kendalls' hearts and carry on with a lot of zest and compassion! A thoroughly contemporary holiday celebration, warmly, wryly humorous and brimming with the love of living! The best for any season!
