A Presentation of One-Acts
BALLOON SHOT: Directed by Dave McGrath. This play takes place in a prison cell with four inmates, one of which is Desmond, whose stories of his prison experiences, and the outlandish escape stories, are starting to grate on his fellow inmates. His present scheme, which is to escape via a hot air balloon, brings a loud debate. Two guards arrive to investigate the resulting ruckus, and Desmond’s chief rival willingly reveals the plan to the guards, resulting in Desmond being sent to the Warden. A delightful short comedy with a bizarre twist.
CHAMBER MUSIC: Directed by Ben Alexander. This dark, absurdist drama takes place in a women’s mental institution where eight patients meet to discuss the day’s events in their ward and to ponder their future. Their illnesses manifest in delusion and paranoia as each woman has one distinguishable trait -- each believes they are an historical figure lost in time. The play thoughtfully examines personal struggles with identity, as well as women’s place in society and their roles in various eras and how it has or has not changed over the years.

This August Wilson drama takes place in Pittsburgh in 1977, in a gypsy cab station, during Pittsburgh’s period of so-called “urban renewal.” As the city tries to shut down businesses -- including the cab station -- to make way for new building, five gypsy cab drivers struggle to survive. The play examines the tumultuous relationship between father and son; husband and wife; black and white Americans; and the interactions between the jitney station regulars.
