WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Actors Workout Studio presents Once Upon a Park Bench, nine all-new original short plays by members of the AWS Writers Workshop. Following on the heels of the recent AWS production, The Bench, this new production features all-new material based on the concept that a park bench is a stage on which the comedy and drama of life play out. The short plays present a range of stories, all of which take place on a park bench, from a pair of mismatched exercise buddies who come together in Mick Montgomery's "The Jogging Trail" to the complex relationship between two male friends -- one gay, one straight -- in Eric Seppala's "The Best Man." Broadway actress Wren Taylor stars as a homeless woman receiving a visit from an affluent young executive in Sunta Izzicupo's "A New Wardrobe." Sammy Williams, a Tony Award-winning member of the original cast of A Chorus Line on Broadway, plays a retired colonel seeking to recruit a former CIA assassin for one last important job in Christopher Hardie's "The Executioner." The complete plays are: "The Best Man" by Eric Seppala Directed by David Dean "Family Traditions" by Eric Seppala Directed by David Dean "A New Wardrobe" by Sunta Izzicupo Directed by Richard Michael Pierce "The Proxy" by Sunta Izzicupo Directed by Richard Michael Pierce "Jogging Trail" by Mick Montgomery Directed by Rob Mello "Family Picnic" by Mick Montgomery Directed by Justin Marshall Hurt "Suzanne" by Johnny Cho Directed by Johnny Cho "The Vote" by Johnny Cho Directed by Justin Marshall Hurt "The Executioner" by Christopher Hardie Directed by David Dean
