From Molière in IKEA to Chekhov in a Tex-Mex restaurant, these six short comedies satirize the world of the American consumer in the style of Euripides, Neil Simon, Shakespeare & Samuel Beckett

THE ELMA - M3,F3 (Euripides)

A child receives the most desired birthday present of the year-a Tickle-Me-Elmo. Chaos and discord descend upon the party as the children vie for a chance to tickle the Elmo

THE PERSEVERATORS - M2,F1 (Moliere)

A trip to IKEA tests the friendship of two young men, and their disagreement over interior design becomes a battle of wits in rhyming couplets

PEANUTS & CRACKER JACK - M1,F2 (Neil Simon)

A young couple on the rocks attends a baseball game, where foul balls, a bombastic hot dog girl, and overpriced Cracker Jack give their relationship the jolt it needs

UPRIGHT & LOCKED - F1 + VOICE M/F (Beckett)

Claustrophobia and confusion overcome a woman on an airplane. A mysterious voice from overhead, giving a warped airline safety speech, only exacerbates her confusion

THE MOST LAMENTABLE COMEDIE OF MOIRA AND ROSA - M1,F2 (Shakespeare)

Two women are fired from their posts at an Amazon warehouse. They take solace in posting online reviews of the things they stole

THE EL TAQUERIA - M2,F3 (Beckett)

A failing family-owned Mexican restaurant in the Berkshires is facing foreclosure, but the three sisters in charge are oblivious. Their estranged brother returns to make them face facts
