American Notes

Synopsis:
the action of the play is made up of a series of concurrent actions, some set in a tacky motel, somewhere else, involving a group of disparate, but curiously related, people. there is the young night clerk, Pauline, who studies her high school english Lit notebook while growing increasingly fearful of the unseen and unwanted suitor who lies in wait in the motel parking lot; a raucous carnival barker touting his giant crocodile, Bonecrusher; a pair of seedy bar denizens who occasionally break into song; a dim-witted handyman, Chuckles, who performs pointless errands; a deranged scientist who believes that he is in contact with creatures from outer space; an abandoned woman who waits restlessly for a lover who will probably never return; and a mysterious drifter, Faber, who somehow becomes the catalyst which fuses all these divergent elements into a cohesive, and often wildly funny, whole. and, in so doing, makes the play both an encapsulation of the American myth and, at the same time, a telling commentary on

Dark Ride

Synopsis:
Is comprised of a series of vignettes involving characters who, at first, appear to bear no relation to each other. a mysterious figure gives a scholar an ancient manuscript to translate; a thief steals an enormous jewel; a woman assures us that life is all coincidence; a dream-like waitress serves her customers all manner of thoughts and suggestions, but no food. the images created are bizarrely funny and provocative and, in time, coalesce into a pattern of driving concerns and obsessions which come into focus when the various characters finally meet at an oculists convention in Mexico City. Phantasmagoric and convoluted, the play is a journey which, in the final essence, transcends the physical world to explore the seat of true reality-the inner recesses of the mind.

Five Of Us

Five Of Us
Deals with the parallel lives of New York tenement dwellers, who live next door to each other but whose paths do not cross until one fateful moment, which spells disaster for them all. One apartment is occupied by Mark, a young writer who churns out pornography while planning the "big novel" he will someday write, and his live-in girlfriend, Lee, an anthropology grad who works as a waitress. their next door neighbor is Herman, a mentally deficient messenger who speaks in a language all his own and amuses himself by calling 800 numbers to make hotel reservations he has no intention of keeping. When Lee is offered a chance to join an anthropological expedition to Sri Lanka, Mark is faced with a crisis-the loss of both her companionship and her income. With the connivance of his ex-con buddy, Eddie, a street-smart would-be mercenary, Mark decides to prop up his finances by robbing Herman's apartment, in the misguided belief that the poor eccentric has been hoarding money. But, instead, what they find is the bizarre detritus of a stunted life-a life which is abruptly ended when Herman, coming upon them, is startled into a fatal epileptic fit. Fearful and guilt-ridden, Mark and Eddie try to cover their tracks-but as the play ends it is also clear that no matter how far or fast they flee they will never escape the spectre of the lonely misfit whose pathetic world they have so thoughtlessly and fatally shattered.

My Uncle Sam

Synopsis:
Uncle Sam was a novelties salesman who died one night, alone and broke, in a Pittsburgh hotel. But he was also a larger-than-life figure, a mythic hero, to his nephew-who now seeks to discover his uncle's true story. His quest is a quixotic and picaresque one, involving a seductive night club singer who promises to marry Sam if he can locate his ne'er-do-well brother (who absconded with the proceeds from a robbery), and developing into a series of sometimes funny sometimes hair-raising episodes as the nephew "becomes" his uncle in his youth and journey's to a remote lighthouse, a rather sinister university laboratory, an opium den, the clinic of a Mexican quack, and a very odd miniature golf course-all intriguingly distorted, as though viewed through a funhouse mirror. In the end it is really the landscape of the mind which is explored and illuminated, as the trail leads back to Old Sam and the disquieting knowledge that dreams and reality are, in the final essence, often one and the same, with the "truth" still remaining tantalizingly out of reach.
