Questions Asked of Dying Dreams
Questions Asked of Dying Dreams
by Philip Vassallo Rating: 0.0

Winner of a New Jersey State Council on the Arts Playwriting Grant

“Questions Asked of Dying Dreams adds up to a rousing maiden voyage for new playwright Vassallo and a challenging and enjoyable evening of theater. … Cynical, sarcastic, funny, or angry, all four playlets are insightful and engaging—no mean feat—and each takes a hard look at life, their characters always questioning its meaning.” — Bob Coyne, Asbury Park Press

Questions Asked of Dying Dreams is the umbrella title for four related one-acts: "What Do You Charge for a Cure?" (35 minutes), about a director of a clinical program for developmentally disabled individuals who confronts her professional and personal doubts as she deals with one of her clients and a new intake; "How Silent Do I Sound?" (15 minutes), about a bigoted, aging moving man who unexpectedly meets his new coworker and his own destiny; "Do I Bleed in the Dark" (25 minutes), about a homeless ex-boxer who has a final chance to make something meaningful of his life in his dying moments; and "Isn't This the Way You Wanted Me?" (25 minutes), about an embittered, frustrated wife who reassesses her marriage and life in light of her husband's remarkable transformation.

UNLEASHED
UNLEASHED
by Christina Hamlett Rating: 0.0

Since the 16th century, the Russians have had a secret weapon, an elite military brigade which strikes terror in the hearts of its enemies each time the moon is full. As the modern war in the Middle East continues to draw world criticism, American intelligence officer Lucy MacDonald and her aide, Captain David Armstrong, are sent to Moscow to engage Soviet assistance in wresting nuclear weapons from Islamic fundamentalists.

Lucy's forbidden attraction to Dmitri Volkov, charismatic leader of the Tsar's brigade, challenges her modern sensibilities against a backdrop of double-dealing terrorists, chauvinistic superiors, and a media that's literally out for blood. Compounding the unexplained presence of supernatural forces interfering with Allied maneuvers at the Pakistan borders is the legend that the brigade answers only to the man they recognize as their Tsar.

Lucy's endeavors to uncover the truth regarding the 1918 survival - and subsequent birth - of an unacknowledged Romanov heir put her in jeopardy at the hands of the brooding officer with whom she feels an inexplicable bond.

There's more than holy smoke, however, that will soon be blowing across Michael's property; romance is in the air in the form of Fiona's dearest friend, Daphne, a beautiful but rebellious Englishwoman who has her own reasons for seeking refuge in turn-of-the-century America.

A Bel Air Lawyer in King Henry's Court
A Bel Air Lawyer in King Henry's Court
by Christina Hamlett Rating: 0.0

Once upon a time, there was a king who had six wives. Not all at once, of course. Nor did he even fathom on this particular evening in 1527 that his reign would become famous for the number of queens that would share his bed. At the moment, he’s only focused on trying to offload his current spouse in order to hastily tie the knot with a woman he believes will bear him the first of many sons.

What he never counted on during his supper that evening was the arrival of a fast-talking divorce lawyer from the 23rd century with an agenda of his own.
