New short plays and monologues by Clay McLeod Chapman, Daniel Gallant, John Guare, Neil LaBute, Daniel F. Levin, Quincy Long, and Laura Shaine will be featured in Five Story Walk Up: Seven Card Draw, to be presented at Dixon Place, March 16-18, at 8pm. Gallant will direct.

The program is a sequel to the 2007 show Five Story Walkup, and reunites the seven authors who contributed new plays and monologues to the original. Works include Guare's "What It Was Like," which describes life in 1970s Manhattan, when the author was living in John Lennon's former apartment and watching the city fall apart while building his own theatrical career. Another highlight is LaBute's "Totally," in which a young woman exacts an unusual revenge against her philandering mate.
