An insecure young woman moves to London for graduate school but also to get over an unsuccessful engagement. She returns home two years later with a new fiancé, convinced she has a new-found confidence. But it is soon apparent that past family secrets threaten it.

Can she face the challenges and keep her “new- found self-confidence?”

Ramla is a retired political science and Africana Studies professor.

About the playwright:

Dear Mavis

A one-act comedy about an aging advice columnist who is inspired by “Miss Manners”.

When a just-out-of-college editor takes over the newspaper and implements changes in every department, Mavis is teamed up with a twenty-something blogger to write a brand-new column. What could go wrong?

About the Playwright:

Physical Education


Young college students Mike and Becka are in love and want to get married. Mike is going to a parent-teacher dinner with his roommate, so he’ll tell his mother there—or will he? Love and innocence collide with vanity and deception as all gather in this Me Too era sex farce.
About the Playwright:

aMUSEd

The muse of comedy, Sebastian, is melancholy, and he wants everyone to know it. In his grief, he terrorizes everyone who draws near successfully. Until Nikki. The battle for mastery of the apartment escalates, as a well-intentioned fiancé, over-bearing landlord, and good old-fashioned police involvement join the fray.

About the Playwright:

Letters Sent

Letters Sent showcases a woman's desperation stemming in suffering in silence as well as the egocentric and narcissistic tendencies that sometimes reveal themselves during times of crisis.  As Claire strives for recovery on her own terms, it becomes quite clear that those around her have their own secret burdens in the form of behavioral disorders and unhealthy coping mechanisms.  A journey through the mental health of one family, Letters Sent confronts, living, dying and the thoughts that manifest in between.

The Actor's Nightmare

This play was inspired by the well known dream that many people in professional and amateur theatre have, that they go must perform in a play that they have inexplicably never been to rehearsals for, and for which they know neither the lines or the plot. So in this play George is an accountant who wanders onto an empty stage, not certain where he is or how he got there. The stage manager informs him he’s the understudy, and must go on in a few minutes. George doesn’t know his name, doesn’t think he’s an actor (“I think I’m an accountant”), and has no idea what play he’s supposed to do.
