Three separate evenings of one-acts by RCL: 5p Evening Niger, by Delaine Douglas, directed by Chuck Patterson. In drought ravaged Niger, a young African mother leaves her village with her baby in search of food and meets a stranger who becomes part of her journey to survive. Don't Forget to Breathe, by Deanna Sidoti, directed by Charlie Sanlin On the path to a nervous breakdown, a "Life Trainer" tries to coach her client to spiritual freedom and realizes she is not the centered, enlightened teacher she thought herself to be. Making Way, by Jimmy Barden, directed by Li Murillo In a futuristic society in which the old are encouraged to give it up for the young, the director of the Office of Making Way thinks he has found the ideal suicide candidate to make an example of as a way of encouraging more elderly people to join the ranks of dead heroes. The director's assistant thinks the chosen hero might, in fact, have a good reason for living. The Homeless Secretary, by Gerry Sheridan, directed by Brian Cichocki What do New York's support staff and the homeless have in common? Lavendar Dawns and Cinnamon Sunsets, by Marjorie Edwards, directed by Carole Khan-White The unlikely meeting of two African-American women from contrasting backgrounds and their journey to find a common goal. 7p Evening Shutter Speeds, by Arthur French III, directed by Paul Nicholas Sometimes a picture can tell more than a story. Other People's Junk, by Derek Burritt, directed by Synge Maher A comedic jaunt into flea-market culture. Three strangers, each with their own needs, vie to own the contents of a storage container put to auction. Dance of the Sparrows, by W. LaBier Jones, directed by Deborah Barone An estranged couple, attempting reconciliation through counseling, get assistance from an unexpected source. Busy Signal, by Marcus Jones, directed by Glen Schudel A couple of friends meet for drinks after being out of touch for a while. The chemistry looks like there's a beginning of a relationship, but something keeps getting in the way. 9p Evening Purple Matt, by Bettina Bilger, directed by Larry Frank A man's desire to have a thriving business surpasses his understanding of his wife's depression so much so that she kills herself in his immediate vicinity without him ever noticing. A black comedy and a drama wrapped into one. The Push by Jason Nunes, directed by Moira Boag Jack is having the worse day of his life. He's been stuck in the subway for an hour and a half, and he's about to be late for his anniversary dinner. So why is his wife, Jill, having the best day of hers? Classic Caprice, by Brandon Ramos, directed by Dustin D'Addato Two near-outlaw brothers look to break out of West Texas and live a dream of running a classic car garage. One-ups-manship and the quest for self-improvement weigh in with a young woman, Sabine, at the fulcrum. The Last Love of Dr. Farrow, by Brandon Ramos, direct by Kelly-Jean Fitzsimmons The tale of young spiritual investigator with an tenuous relationship with the truth. The good doctor develops feelings for his neighbor, Lyla, who has trouble with his parlor-room spiritualism.
