NEW PLAYS BY
TIME IN KAFKA
A college professor of literature finds some clues to a lost manuscript of Kafka’s. If he finds it, his career is made. His search leads him to Italy, and a time-warp, and a love affair, and an identity switch, and a sanatorium with a dangerous cast of doctors and patients.
HOW IS IT THAT WE LIVE or SHAKEY JAKE + ALICE
Two lifelong lovers, who move in and out of each other’s lives. Two mysterious, sometimes unreliable narrators who tell us their tale and take part in it. The play presents us with the ideals, thoughts, passions, joys and sorrows of two ordinary/extraordinary people. They are their own particular selves, they embody a generation at a recent time in our American history, and they are just two human beings, who are born, die, live, love, get lost, get found.
