AL WAS RIGHT
By: Ryan Armstrong
(: 40 : 2 , 3 , 5 
     : 1-5 )
The future. Moments before World War IV but after the collapse of technology and order. As the Mexi-American army prepares to defend their bunker against an invading army of Canadians, it is a hard time to find any sense of intelligence. But, all’s well that ends well. Maybe a marriage.

Student teachers Marjorie and Ken rehearse a gender role-reversal play for their elementary school students who will arrive any minute.

Even Shakespeare has returned to do some minor – or major, depending on...  read more
PRISCILLA THE PRECIOUS
By: Debbie Lannen
(: 5 : 1 , 1 , 2 )
Considering a cruise vacation? Exotic ports, fine dining, nightly entertainment ... pirates? Perhaps ye might think again landlubber! Duration: 5 minutes.
UNDERSTANDING LEAR
By: Joe Godfrey
(: 15 : 2 , 2 )
A veteran actor prepares to deliver a lecture on the meaning of Shakespeare's King Lear, when he is interrupted by a cell phone going off more than once in the audience. Ordering the offending audience member on stage to explain his rude behavior, the actor in effect becomes Lear as the play progresses, and the young man with the cell phone becomes Lear's...  read more
