BALLS

SAMUEL FRENCH OOB FEST FINALIST

Five Christmas balls sleep side-by-side in post-season bliss, when four are awakened by the bitter quarreling of their owners. Stunned by the crushed, seemingly deceased condition of their fifth companion, they desperately try to invoke Peace on Earth before the raging battle reduces them all to five neat piles of shattered, seasonal glass.

PHILENA, THE LOVER

OF MANKIND

Philena, a 70 year-old

long-legged saucy dame
who still looks dynamite and isn't afraid to flaunt it, must share her one-bedroom apartment with
her almost 50 year-old recently divorced daughter Caitlin, 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.

Part of the L'IMAGE collection of one acts.
