First produced in 2012, this script contains over fifty plays performed in under two hours, each play has different characters and each begins with a statement and a situation that is familiar such as "I'm frightened" or "What did you do that for?" or "I don't want to spend an evening with them again." The theme is about individuals trying to connect and understand each other--sometimes the attempt is in vain, but it's always worth the effort.
