This delightful anthology of short plays offers a wide variety of challenging roles for men and women over the age of fifty-five

Short Stuff dramatizes the lives of distinctive and memorable characters such as:

Harriet, a sixty-something dynamo who returns to college to earn her degree

Georgie and Sass who discover the power of laughter and acceptance in the face of adversity

Howard and Ellie who endure a stormy blind date arranged through a dating service

Edwin and Phyllis whose marriage survives the existence of Edwin's diary of women who have attracted his fancy

Dick and Rusty who play out a romantic gun-totin' fantasy of the Old West

Mr Ponazecki who laments the passing of a favorite hotel in his hometown of Chicago

A cleaning lady who feels like a queen when she steps into the shoes of a beauty pageant contestant

Two sisters who come to terms with a husband's infidelity

A derelict and his relationship with a woman seeking the warmth of companionship

And two friends who learn that friendship is far more valuable than winning a jackpot in Las Vegas

These short pieces, requiring minimal production support, have been penned by Mark Steven Jensen, Douglas Hill, Claudia Allen, Earl Reimer, Irl Mowery, John Green, Jenny Laird, Nicole J. Burton, Mark Plaiss, Kent R. Brown, L.B. Hamilton, D.M. Bocaz-Larson, David Alex, Erik Ramsey, Violet Gunter and Bob May
