“Almost, Maine”

By John Cariani

Directed by Brian Chambers

On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter we find the mythical town of Almost, Maine.  As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways.  Knees are bruised.  Hearts are broken.  But the bruises heal and the hearts mend – almost – in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.


Consists of 8 separate scenes, with each scene happening simultaneously and featuring different characters.


Cast –

A least 2 males, 2 females or as many as 19

Possibility of some people playing multiple roles. The show is written for four actors, but can be cast with more at the director’s discretion.

Looking for actors aged 18-60.

“As Bees in Honey Drown”

By Douglas Carter Beane

Directed by Kayla Esmond

Evan Wyler captures the attention of Alexa Vere de Vere, a black-clad woman of mystery who has made the work of celebrity her home.  Maybe she’s a record producer, maybe she’s a film agent, what is clear is that she wants Evan to write the screenplay of her life story.  Evan discovers a chain of people who have fallen under her spell and acted as her meal ticket.  For Alexa has no money, no job, no life of her own – only the one she has created for herself.


Cast – 3 males, 3 females

Evan Wyler – Late twenties, young writer

Alexa Vere De Vere – Can be almost any age, but must move with grace and confidence.
