The Humana Festival presents The Ten-Minute Plays:
Dream of Jeannie-by-the-Door, by David Valdes Greenwood
Gary and Bonnie have a date at the altar, Wilma has a date with her favorite slot machine, and everyone is hoping to get lucky. A quirky critique of casinos, good-luck charms and the dangers of aiming for a jackpot that will never pay out quite the way you imagine.
Goody F***ing Two Shoes, by Jennifer Maisel
The drama club. The new girl. The lead in the school play. High school politics get dirty.
Johannes, Pyotr & Marge, by Jeffrey Essmann
Brahms, Tchaikovsky and Marge-the three pillars of Romanticism-share a birthday and an ability to wax rhapsodic on music, Velveeta cheese, and the struggle to recognize the beauty right in front of you.
Long Dream in Summer, by Saïd Sayrafiezadeh
A mother tries to save her son from the brutalities of war in this evocative study of the power, even in its earliest days, of America's favorite past-time.
