Why see one play this weekend, when you can see a Half Dozen?

Playwright Brandi Eaton has combined six of her 10-minute works, and enlisted the talents of different directors to give each piece a unique perspective and vision. The shows also put the spotlight on some of the area’s brightest actors and actresses, in roles that offer both comedic and dramatic opportunities.

Half Dozen features a six-pack of shorts that revolve around secrets, surprises, second thoughts and second chances. First up, Tiny houses a very big disagreement in a very small space. It is smartly directed by Alex J. Nine and humorously performed by Grace Mitri, Mishal Sunaid, and Sue Jeromson.

Partners focuses on two ladies who are literally making a killing in their careers. Playwright Eaton directs and acts in the devious piece,  along with crafty actors Cristy Wright and Sally Morris.

Letting go of loved ones is never easy, but one couple decides to get a head start in A Telegram in the World of Smartphones. Sensitively directed by Karen Rose, the drama is heightened by powerful players Ryanne Fury, Tyler Barhorst, and Al Klesh.

Three daughters learn more about their parents than they wanted to in The Mike Reynolds Affair. Anna-Jeannine K. Herman helms this hilarious scene, with fun and funny performances from Grace Mitri, Brandi Eaton, Cristy Wright, and Al Klesh.

Idiots is about a pair of silly gooses who just happen to be fools in love. Deftly directed by Adam Alderson, the sketch stars a terrific trio including Sue Jeromson, Andrew Alderson, and Chelsea Young.

Matt’s First (Real) Thanksgiving turns the holiday upside-down when a man brings his boyfriend home to meet the family. Brian Westerley stages the show with plenty of heartfelt humor, and also performs in the piece along with his engaging, endearing ensemble including Adrienne Jones, Nicholas Peters, Rose Gabriele, and Harriet DeVeto.

The technical staff for the show adds just the right amount of ambiance to distinguish the locales for each play. Lighting, sound and set design and construction are all handled by Jim Gremba. Sue Snyder (along with the directors) contributed the props and set dressing.
