Orson's Shadow

Synopsis:
An ingenious tale of two Hollywood giants-Orson Welles and Laurence Olivier. the time is 1960; the place is a West End theatre. Legendary critic Kenneth Tynan has made a startling proposal: Welles should direct Olivier and the young Joan Plowright in Rhinoceros, Ionesco's absurdist masterpiece. But it is the rehearsal process that brims with absurdity as titanic personalities, including Vivien Leigh, wrestle the muse in this witty and incisive depiction of the Drama of theatre.

Uncle Bob

Synopsis:
Uncle Bob lives in New York as an uproariously articulate hermit, separated from the wife to whom he is devoted-and who is devoted to him. He is visited by his nephew, Josh, who is without a job, without a completed college education, and without any sense of a future, all of which he faces with a wit and nervy desperation that finds its only match in his Uncle Bob. Uncle Bob has AIDS, and Josh has hitched from the Midwest, uninvited (profoundly uninvited), to take care of him. A loving and funny, abrasive and profane face-off ensues.
