Synopsis: The Man in a Cas by Wendy Wassterstein -- Varinka is a free spirit in love with the older Byelinkov, the most proper man in town. But his inhibitions and worries about how he and Varinka are perceived when she boldly rides a bicycle about town threatens to unravel their impending marriage.

27 Wagons Full of Cotton ­by Tennessee Williams -- After Jake, a shady, middle-aged cotton gin owner, burns down rival Silva Vicarro's mill, Vicarro attempts to enact vengeance by seducing Flora, Jakes delicate young wife. A "Mississippi Delta comedy."

Tell by Victor Bumbalo – Tell has become a place where sensuality, pain, remembrance, escapism, imagination, and the harsh reality of AIDS all intertwine. It is a place where remembering the past helps escape the pain of today.

Sure Thing by David Ives -- Two people meet in a cafe and find their way through a conversational minefield as an offstage bell interrupts their false starts, gaffes, and faux pas on the way to falling in love.
