The Super Committee in Congress is in deadlocks over budget cuts here in the States, but Britain has been rocked with protests over austerity cuts imposed on it. Eight of Britain's best playwrights had a response: Hi Vis by Clara Brennan: An amateur clown talks to us about daughters, politicians, vibrators and miracles. Fragile by David Greig: A disturbed young man breaks into his counselor's apartment, hoping to make an impression. Things That Make No Sense by Dennis Kelly: When fetuses are being arrested for attempted murder, what chance does a bottled water salesman have? Housekeeping by Lucy Kirkwood: Privatize the sky and the sea? Nothing is out of the question when "everything is on the table". Open Heart Surgery by Laura Lomas: How can you mend a broken heart when it's gone missing? The Fat Man by Anders Lustgarten: "You know the shell game? The object is to take the sucker's money. Watch the ball now." A Bigger Banner by Mark Ravenhill: An Occupy protestor gets a revelatory visitation from a Socialist ghost. Whiff Whaff by Jack Thorne: "We realized we needed to look at it as an opportunity to prove that you don't need support to function in society."
All eight short plays and monologues are directed by Dave Barton, their sets designed by Jason Bannister and costumed by Heather Girten. The plays also feature the best actors that Orange County has to offer, including Frank Aranda, Mo Arii, Scott Barber, Patti Cumby, Sean Engard, Bryan Jennings, Jeffrey Kieviet, Katrina Klein, Jessica Lamprinos, Jill Cary Martin, Jami McCoy, Tiina Mittler, Terri Mowrey, Jennifer Pierce, Cynthia Ryanen and Lee Samuel Tanng.
