The plays: 

PHILENA, THE LOVER OF MANKIND

Philena, a 70 year-old long-legged saucy dame who still looks dynamite in skin-tight leather pants and isn't afraid to flaunt it, must share her one-bedroom apartment with Caitlin, her 50 year-old recently divorced daughter and apple of her eye, who clearly wants to stay as far away from the maternal tree that’s always been her greatest source of embarrassment. But tonight they must be on their best behavior - it’s first date night for both of them. WHO SAYS 70 ISN'T SEXY?

M

Dr. Marion Calden-Baron, an overwrought, under-loved Park Avenue psychotherapist, juggling an overbooked schedule of annoyingly demanding patients, her own questionable sanity, and flagging fidelity, finds herself trapped inside her office with a mysterious young woman named M, who brings with her a haunting melody and heartfelt message from Marion’s past that just might change the good doctor’s life forever.

DEAD LANGUAGE

Luis makes one final, outrageous attempt to rescue his lover and their relationship from the devastating consequences of linguistic lethargy. 

B.A.B.Y.
(Buy A Better You!)

Mimi wakes up disgusted with the way she looks, the way she feels, the guys she knows, and wants nothing more than to trade herself in for a newer model. Online, she finds the Buy A Better You agency (B.A.B.Y.), where you can have yourself poured into the perfect model of your choice.
