Abstract:

Hidden Agendas. A satirical look at nonprofit arts institutions that depend on the various whims of their subscribers wishes, the beneficence of the National Endowment for the Arts, charitable patrons and the passing fashions of the times.

Street Talk. A confrontational monologue pondering the changes in the American Theatre from the sixties, when theatre itself sought to confront, challenge and educate, to today's theatre which seems only to give a bigger bang for the buck.

The Wibbly ... Follows a lonely young man and a male hustler during their one-night stand. Their meeting leads to a discussion, in detail, about the pros and cons of being with a man or a woman. Only one of them has any leanings towards true intimacy. Unfortunately, he isn't the one who is being paid, and after his rented partner leaves, he is left to mull over his bitterest feelings.

André's Mother. At André's memorial, his lover tries one last time to get through to André's mother, an imposing figure in André's life. Not realizing her hidden emotions, he tells her everything he can before leaving her alone to deal with her own sense of grief and loneliness.
