TALKING TO A STRANGER: A grown-up brother and sister's visit to their parents' home culminates in a shocking tragedy. The events of the weekend are told over four episodes, each focusing on the point of view of one family member: the daughter Terry; the father, Ted; the son, Alan and finally the mother, Sarah. The full story of the dysfunctional family plays out through the use of repeating scenes, flashback, and monologue. MAKE AND BREAK: Lots of pent up business people struggle to balance business with pleasure. ABSOLUTE HELL: Black comedy set in Soho, London, right after WWII. Half of the fun is seeing a slew of very familiar faces kick up their heels as gay men, lesbians, party-girls, drunks, and drag queens. THE CHERRY ORCHARD: Madame Ranevskaya is a spoiled aging aristocratic lady, who returns from a trip to Paris to face the loss of her magnificent Cherry Orchard estate after a default on the mortgage. In denial, she continues living in the past, deluding herself and her family, while the beautiful cherry trees are being axed down by the re-possessor Lopakhin, her former serf, who has his own agenda. GHOSTS: Oswald Alving is dying. His mother is anxious to keep the precise nature of his illness a secret. GOING GENTLY: Play about two elderly cancer patients suffering in hospital.
