Made For A Woman ~ The perfect young woman and her perfect young boyfriend are perfect examples of the image conscious society in which we live

She has everything and he does too, and they have each other. All is fine until she feels duped by a case of over-packaging, her world falls apart, and she decides to take matters into her own hands in a dangerous way (1M, 1W)

In Bachelor Holiday a mouse, caught in a glue trap, causes three roommates to discuss the meaning of life, death, yuppiedom, karma and the harsh reality of their place on the food chain (3M)

Power Lunch ~ Over a Power Lunch a highly ambitious couple battle for power and control of their relationship even though they've just met

So serious are they that they even use the wait staff as tools of jealousy (2M, 2W)

In The M Word two ambitious executives decide that they are good for each other and proceed to negotiate a future together. As they're so caught up in the corporate lifestyle, this truly is a negotiation and in the end, they agree to "merge" (1M, 1W)

Your Mother`s Butt focuses on a therapist desperately searching for clues to help her seriously disturbed young patient. As the patient rattles on about shoes and belts, he recalls a dream he had about his mother and the therapist thinks she's got her answer (1M, 1W)

Five satirical looks at modern life ranging in topics from marriage to our place in the food chain

"The one act plays by Georgia playwright Alan Ball are comic gems" ~ Twin Cities Reader

" [Ball] demonstrates a painfully lethal awareness of the convoluted games our generation has been consigned to play after we decided 20 years ago that we wouldn't play any more games" ~ Downtown
