because of his over-energetic sexual demands. He persuades a long absent visiting friend to pose as a
priest and talk sense to her--which works beautifully until she catches on. Whereupon she turns the tables
on hubby in hilarious fashion.
A Beatle's Story by Morley Shulman, Directed by Tyler Riley
Synopis: This play about the Beatles is basically a conversation between John Lennon and Paul McCartney
about replacing their Bass player, Stu, and who on earth they are going to get to replace him. Stu has
decided to stay behind in Hamburg after their tour in Germany and get married....and he didn't like Paul
taking the piss out of him all the time. A fast paced funny play by best-selling playwright Morley Shulman,
with snappy lines in the style of the classic Beatles films such as ' A Hard Day's Night.'
A Mad Breakfast by I. M. Gray, Directed by Danyel Comstock
Synopsis: A classic one-act farce from Vaudeville days, set in a boarding house. Practical jokers Mr. Jones
and Miss Brown tell each of the guests that wealthy visitor Mr. Long is especially interested in their individual
hobbies. They also tell Mr. Long that the boarding house is a lunatic asylum. Hilarity ensues as chaos tops
confusion, soon causing Mr. Long to fear for his life. The madness culminates in a crazy séance.
Considered by many to be one of the funniest one-acts ever written.
Ferris Wheel by Mary Miller, Directed by Rachel Scudder
Synopsis: Funny and touching, the play is the unlikely love story of two lonely people who are forced to ride
together on an old country Ferris wheel. She's afraid of heights. He's afraid to give up smoking. They are
both afraid of each other.
