SEVEN WAYS TO SAY I LOVE YOU

Seven Short Comedies by Alan Szymkowicz

Directed by Robert C. Latino

Seeking 2-3 men and 2-3 women, age range 20's - 50's, to play a variety of roles in this collection of short plays

SYNOPSIS:

This collection of funny, sweet, silly, poignant and stylistically diverse short plays from New York favorite Adam Szymkowicz has something for everyone. From the awkwardness of asking out a pizza store clerk (Ambience Pizza), to a campy infidelity revenge comedy (Film Noir), to the couple destined to be together no matter the obstacles (John and April), this collection explores heart, grief, pain, and humor as the plays dance around the eternal human theme of love.

DRINKING HABITS

A Comedy by Tom Smith

Directed by Joshua Raymond

Seeking 5 Women & 3 Men

SYNOPSIS: Accusations, mistaken identities, and romances run wild in this traditional, laugh-out-loud farce. Two nuns at the Sisters of Perpetual Sewing have been secretly making wine to keep the convent's doors open, but Paul and Sally, reporters and former fiancees, are hot on their trail. They go undercover as a nun and priest, but their presence, combined with the addition of a new nun, spurs paranoia throughout the convent that spies have been sent from Rome to shut them down. Wine and secrets are inevitably spilled as everyone tries to preserve the convent and reconnect with lost loves.

CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS:

Sister Philamena (F)  Age range 20 - mid 50's. One of the three nuns who lives at the Sisters of Perpetual Sewing.  Has secretly been making wine for several years with Sister Augusta in order to keep the convent open.  Both Sister Philamena and Sister Augusta are devout and are dedicated to their calling.  They are also very joyful and humorous.

Sister Augusta (F) Age range 20 - mid 50's. One of the three nuns who lives at the Sisters of Perpetual Sewing.  Has secretly been making wine for several years with Sister Philamena in order to keep the convent open.  Both Sister Philamena and Sister Augusta are devout and are dedicated to their calling.  They are also very joyful and humorous.

George (M) Age range 20's - early 30's. Caretaker and gardener at the convent.  George isn't dumb, but he isn't the brightest person either.

Mother Superior (F) Age range 40's - early 60's.  Has been in charge of the Sisters of Perpetual Sewing for many years.  Hates alcohol, especially wine.  Somewhat wily (she has to be living with Sister Philamena & Sister Augusta).

Paul (M) Age range 20's - 30's.  Newspaper reporter. Co-worker and former fiancé of Sally.  Paul is an orphan. He's a good writer but his conscience sometimes gets in the way of his reporting.

Sally (F) Age range 20's - 30's. Award-winning newspaper reporter.  Used to be engaged to Paul.  Left him standing at the altar on their wedding day to cover an important story.  Quick witted and sometimes sharp-tongued.

Sister Mary Catherine (F) Age range 20's - early 30's. A novice nun sent to the convent to finish her training. Meek and timid.

Father Chenille (M) Age range 40's - early 60's. Priest of the local parish that the convent is next to.  Patient, understanding and a little clumsy.
