Jumping Cholla by Dorothy Lemoult
Toolbox by Dan Trujillo.
This play is very much not not not finished. This was not a glorious NaPlWriMo for me. But hey.... we all learn from our failures. I have no shame. This is an excerpt.
A group of Brooklyn hipsters unwittingly become involved in the marriage of a wealthy Upper East Side couple.
Beneath its boring façade a Northwest town hides a nasty secret, and the girls from the local high school’s Christian Athletes Club are here to tell you all about it. Murder, the occult, Algebra… this is a deathly black comedy that punches as hard as your high school bully
One burned out playwright. One homeless man. One encounter on a Dark and Languid Night. Can it save them both?
Ben is convinced his house is haunted, but Chester, his friend and landlord, hesitates to believe him.

Actor, David Williamson is looking for the love of his life. He meets three potential candidates who all just happened to be named "Jennifer." David's on stage life begins to reflect his off stage life and vice versa. A richly symbolic play filled with music, fantasy, mythology and the theatre.
A modern day take on the mythology of old, the play follows the grandson of Death as he navigates his was through the murky waters of adolesence and being a psychopomp, a severer of the thread that links the mortal body to the soul.
Renowned screenwriter Wes Farley is getting some Oscar buzz for his recent film, A Shoulder For the World to Cry On, and also getting some media attention as a screenwriter living with HIV. If only. (Attached is an excerpt from the play.)
