Case 476, A/B

Synopsis:
Three individuals meet at a crossroad. aSTeR is a mysterious, slightly unearthly character who has been tasked to "resolve" two "cases" by "playing them off each other," even though this is not the way he prefers to work. RIGeL is a practical woman with a suppressed but simmering imagination for stories. RION is a responsible man who will not take his walks through the countryside, however much he enjoys them, until he has finished "contributing to what makes society tick." Rigel's initially hesitant decision to share the story of the five months she spent walking her neighbor's dog gives each of them something significant to consider.

In the midst of an evening of one-acts, a play fails to begin. Two audience members, in an attempt to fill the gap, find themselves caught in a metatheatrical, philosophical quest for truth--in theatre, in art, in life.

Second Chance

Synopsis:
Is it possible to alter destiny? It is Tiresa's birthday, and her brother, OEddie, and two closest friends, ann and Jo, have come over to celebrate. But Tiresa's merry mood suddenly changes to one of puzzlement, and then of horror, as she claims to have arrived back from a time several moments into the future, when something terrible happened. She cannot remember what, but is desperate to prevent it from happening again, while OEddie insists that in a deterministic universe nothing can be changed. To prove his point, he forces her to open the final present in spite of her resistance, initiating the very sequence of tragic events Tiresa has been struggling to stop.
