Meeting my Father
> >written and performed byMaria Affinito
Maria is waiting for her father to respond. She's standing in the lobby of his apartment building and she has just pressed the buzzer next to his name on the director. Maria has never met her father.For the past twenty years, her mother insisted that her father died of a mysterious illness. A few days ago Maria found out that her father was alive. And he lives nearby. She hears a man's voice weakly through the intercom, "Hello?" Now it's Maria's turn. What does she say to him at this point? Why is she doing this?
Be Careful What You Wish For
> >written and performed by Vanessa Alabarces
Vanessa's in a tight spot. But when her flippant prayer for escape is answered, she has to make an uncomfortable decision. Does she succumb to her Florida roots and work at a strip club? Or does she accept a provocative proposal and fulfill her dream to move 3,000 miles away from her family?
> > written and performed by David Caggiano
In a world where scientists claim dinosaurs and man never coexisted, one born-again preacher has the faith to prove them wrong. Brother Dallas is on a holy mission: He's hellbent on making a movie to show the world that man and dinosaur walked side by side, and it was the Great Flood that changed the Earth, not evolution. ButHollywoodhas some script rewrites of its own. Toss in a kinky sex scandal and a visit from the Prince of Darkness himself -- and you've got a comedy of Biblical proportions.
