The Shows:

College Letters by Dailyn Rodriguez

In a college dorm room, a self-described cynic and an “air head” with a seemingly perfect life battle over the mail, love, and nearly everything else. It’s a miracle they haven’t killed each other — but even more miraculous, they become best friends.

Strawberry Fields by Kevin Brofsky

Edith Warren of Plant City, Florida, meets Vera Samuels, famous New York daytime television talk show hostess, in a diner to discuss an interview. Edith became the subject of controversy when her son was killed in a strawberry field, apparently a bias murder because he was gay. Edith has agreed to the interview, but is having second thoughts due to the finger pointing she has experienced, which includes the waitress serving them this day. Vera has to convince her to go on television and can only do that by revealing something personal and career damaging about her own life.

Dear Mrs. Martin by Kate Aspengren

Barbara Martin is surprised when her new cleaning woman, Gloria, begins writing her personal notes and stories about her son or about her trips to her psychic and her belief in an afterlife. Barbara gets caught up in the letter writing and a warm friendship develops between these two women from different social and economic spheres. When Barbara’s husband dies unexpectedly, it is Gloria who is able to provide support and understanding. Told through Barbara’s and Gloria’s letters, Dear Mrs. Martin is a play about friendship, family, grief and hope.
