The Blender is a collection of eight fast moving and hilarious short plays by Dylan Guerra, all of which have been produced in the Miami area. The Blender uses twisted characters and striking comedy to deal with various issues including self discovery, sexuality, moving on, the definition of progress, and belief.
The Blender opens with "How To", a fast comedy on familial structure in the 1950?s and continues with "Brilliant Children", a play about actors who can't get over their past roles. "Plants!", a thriller-comedy about people turning in to plants delivers a sci-fi blow to the gut. "Kill Your Darlings" is an existential-crisis comedy that begins when a playwright tells the characters from his beloved play that he must kill one of them off. The play series is anchored by "Apple Tree" and award winning re-telling of Adam and Eve. Plays also included in The Blender are "Python", a play about the end of a marijuana dealing family and their python on the back porch; "The Six", a one man show that questions happiness; and "Underworld", a mafia farce on the water.
