“The Munchies Games” by Jennifer Riley and James Killmurry
The Hunger Games is undoubtedly one of the most popular book and film franchises in the history of the entertainment business, which, of course, makes it the perfect vehicle to satirize. The Munchies Games is a dead-on spoof of the enormously popular futuristic adventure series. The question is, “Does Dogniss Everclear have what it takes to win the 35th Annual ‘The Munchies Games’? Outrageous fun!
“Decisions” by Bridget Grace Sheaff
Using acerbic wit and real-life wisdom, Bridget Grace Sheaff has written a smart, sassy, first-person poem chronicling the ups and downs of a relationship. Touching!
“Love in a Unit” by Robert Hodgson Van Wagoner
How far would you go to protect the one you love? This is the rhetorical question Robert Hodgson Van Wagoner poses, as he introduces us to a man who suddenly finds himself torn between simply protecting the one he loves and becoming a hometown vigilante. A tour-de-force for a mature male performer!
“When I See Her” by Sujin Jeong
On April 16, 2014, The Sewol, a ferry, carrying mostly high school students on a field trip to Jeju, an island off South Korea’s southern coast, sank, killing 304 people onboard. In her fictitious one-act play based on actual events, playwright Sujin Jeong introduces us to Sora, a high school student, who, after losing her best friend, Minji, in The Sewol ferry disaster, experiences Post-Traumatic Syndrome, causing her to believe her best friend is still alive. A psychological thriller!
“The Human(e) Society” by Gregory T. Burns and Bryan Denbow
In the tradition of the science fiction classic, Planet of the Apes, playwrights Gregory T. Burns and Bryan Denbow take us to the future—where Earth is no longer run by humans. Instead, society is governed by Dogs and Cats, and humans have become more-or-less indentured pets. “The Human(e) Society” takes a poignant look at society as a whole, as we ponder the question: Hundreds of years from now, will societal problems be all that different from the problems we face today? Powerful play!
