May 5th Baggage by Sam Bobrick (2008) Cast of 4 = 2f + 2m 90’
Two difficult, single people, Phyllis and Bradley, both trying to heal from their respective disappointing relationships, get their luggage mixed up at the airport. After a very disagreeable first encounter, the two decide to help each get over their heartaches by forcing a friendship that eventually leads to the two discovering that while they may be too difficult for everyone else in the world, they are perfect for each other.

May 12th Better Late by Larry Gelbart (2008) Cast of 4 = 1f + 3m 120’
As Better Late opens, composer Lee Baer is forced by his wife, Nora, to take in her ex-husband, Julian, after a recent stroke. Tension builds between the two as Julian makes it more and more difficult for Lee to get any written. All the while family and relationship dynamics are tested when Julian and Nora’s son, Billy, reveals that he is going through a divorce of his own. How long will Julian stay, and how long will it take until Lee cracks?

May 19th Assisted Living by Deirdre O’Connor (2013) Cast of 4 = 2f + 2m 90’
Anne Kelly needs help. She’s pushing forty and still lives with her mother. Her deadbeat brother won’t return her calls, and the ancient family home seems to be falling down around her. When a younger man with a troubled past comes into her life, Anne begins to see the upside of not always being the grown-up. ASSISTED LIVING is a funny and surprising look at the struggle to discover where our families end, and we begin.

June 4th Ripcord by David Lindsay-Abaire (2016) Cast of 6 = 3f + 3m 90’
A sunny room on an upper floor is prime real estate in the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, so when the cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarters with new-arrival Marilyn, she has no choice but to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman by any means necessary. A seemingly harmless bet between the women quickly escalates into a dangerous game of one-upmanship that reveals not just the tenacity of these worthy opponents, but also deeper truths that each would rather remain hidden.
