6:15 ON THE 104, deals with a chance encounter on a New York City bus, where four women, all strangers, suddenly find themselves confiding in each other.

Synopsis

IF YOU WERE MY WIFE I'D SHOOT MYSELF, is set in a bar in Rome. A young American actress, Marinella, solicits the help of the bartender, Antonio, in composing a letter to her idol, the famous Italian stage and film director, Franco Zefferelli, who, she hopes, will give her a role in his next project. Cynical and world-weary, Antonio is, at first, impatient with Marinella's histrionics and apparent flightiness, but gradually, as confidences are exchanged, a bridge of understanding—and compassion—is created between these two very different people.

Short
Synopsis

In UNDER CONTROL, a brother and sister join their stepmother in Florida for their father's burial. David is a hard-driving television producer who must be on top of every situation; Connie, a successful journalist, has a distorted sense of the power and validity of reason; while Frances, their stepmother, is an easygoing sort who is severely unruffled by things which seem to trouble her stepchildren. The crux of their present unease is how to dispose of the ashes of the deceased—a problem that is ultimately resolved in a rather surprising but mutually satisfactory manner.

     

Voice of My Own, A Drama 5 (0m, 5f) View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

Covering a broad spectrum from Sappho to writers of the present day, the play points up not only the triumphs of women in literature, but also the discouragement, derision and disbelief to which they were too often subjected. Spanning twenty-six centuries, the play evokes the words and feelings of women who were frequently obliged to hide behind anonymity or male names in order to practice their art, and from whom fantastic strength of character and indomitability were required. That they succeeded so brilliantly in their efforts is not only a tribute to these talented women in particular but, in a more general sense, to the irrepressible spirit of the entire "other half" of humanity, whose voice would not be denied.

Widely toured by The Acting Company (John Houseman, director), and then presented in New York, this imaginative and engrossing "collage for voices" traces the emergence and growing influence of women in literature, through deftly interwoven excerpts from the words and works of twenty-four outstanding female writers. "…an admirable anthology, not only effective as theater, but also as an evening with a purpose." —NY Times. "It is hard to believe so much pure entertainment can be packed into a mere hour and a half." —Rochester, NY Democrat and Chronicle. "…honed to a needle-edge of sharpness with an economical intelligence…" —Troy, NY Times Record.
