37 Postcards

Synopsis:
After years of traveling abroad, Avery Sutton is happy to return to the comfort of his home in Connecticut. Unfortunately, almost nothing is as he remembered it. the entire house is tilted at a distinct angle, the dog hasn't been fed in five years, and Avery's Grandmother, who everyone thought was dead, is still alive and kicking. Forced to either accept the oddities of his family, or leave them behind, 37 Postcards suggests that you can, in fact, go home again. . . You just never know what you're going to find.

Apron Strings

Synopsis:
Discarding the tired, old warn-out cliches of motherhood and creating a few new ones, Michael McKeever takes on mothers and children in this collection of six short plays. From the tilting deck of a sinking Titanic, to the kitschy kitchen of a mother coming to terms with her daughter's duel sexuality, to the quiet solemnity of a church confessional, six different vignettes take the audience on a wickedly funny, often moving journey back home to Mom. With humor, pathos and an extra large helping of love, McKeever takes a long look at the ever changing complexity of motherhood and wraps it up nicely in Apron Strings. Perfect for anyone who's ever had a mother.

Two players of a very dangerous game try to outwit each other with tragic results.

Impressionists, The

Synopsis:
Fighting the system and at times each other, a few stout individuals broke all the rules and changed forever how modern man would look at art. From the rigid conformity of the Paris Salon to the exhilaration and freedom of their first independent show, the story of these artists is one filled with human Drama. Great loss and remarkable triumph all play a part in the birth of what would become known as Impressionism.

New Orleans Story, The

Synopsis:
Three friends on a long weekend in New Orleans. With this simple premise begins a tale of self-discovery and understanding. A tale inhabited by a gallery of colorful characters: A philosophizing drag queen/security guard; a benign and insightful cemetary caretaker; an overzealous society matron; and Loveshack, the world's ugliest stripper. these and others act as a Greek chorus to our trio, as they find their way through life in the Vieux Carre. the New Orleans Story takes us on a journey from the palatial country clubs of Louisiana's richest families to the decadent stages of Bourbon Street's strip bars. A journey that ultimately leads, at 30,000 feet above the Gulf of Mexico, to a greater understanding of a better way of life.

Synopsis:
Is it possible to create art without selling one's soul? This is the question, artfully, hilariously posed in South Beach Babylon, Michael McKeever's theatrical ode to the daunting task of being an artist in contemporary America. Tracking the lives of five ambitious artists during the weeks leading up to South Beach's epic Art Basel Weekend, this insightful play follows each artist's journey navigating the collision of art and capitalism, pomposity and prestige, and the parts of ourselves we let fall away in our quest for success.

Unsinkable

Unsinkable
It's April 15th, 1912, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Harland and Claire Wydner-Doyle have just been informed that the ship they're standing on, the unsinkable Titanic, is in fact sinking. Hogwash! Even more ludicrous, Mrs. Wydner-Doyle's lifebelt is quite odorous, and everyone's too busy panicking to bring them a tipple of champagne. The shame of it!

Velveteen Undertow

Synopsis:
Sam Templer, always in control, is about to have another in a series of never-ending affairs with women whose names he can never remember. What he doesn't realize is that he's about to play baby sitter to a madman. Maxwell Love is the Number 1 Christian recording Star of 1996. He also might have just beaten his prostitute girlfriend into a coma. Two worlds collide in Room 712 of the Quality Days Motel, as these two men find themselves trapped with each other and possibly worse . . . the truth about themselves. Religion, marriage, family values and love all get a once-over, as Room 712 spins out of control to the play's comic-tragic conclusion.
