Susan Apker joined us tonight, having driven from Oklahoma. Unhappily, she had troubles with her flash drive, so wasn't able to share work with us. We did hear scenes from (and the synopses are mine, not the playwrights' -- so my apologies for misrepresenting work I'm hearing as it develops!):
Diane Rao Harmon: Rom -- life in a Polish DP camp immediately after WWII; romance with a black marketeer is potentially a problem for one of two women, the only members of their large family to survive the Holocaust
Meg Barker: TDot Lake; a mysterious explosion causes disjunctions in an otherwise bucolic Canadian National campside
Geralyn Horton: Reviving Susanna: Another scene from the play Geralyn's developing about an idealistic graduate student passionate to revive the work and reputation of Susanna Centlivre, the second professional female English playwright (heyday ci. 1710)
Mrinalini Kamath: May I Help You? -- petty rivalries, friendships, and a mysterious new hire in a ticket selling agency
Linda Evans: Fireballs: a curmudgeonly man running for local office must cope with a daughter who, having won a major prize in physics, is upstaging him when she returns home. Then there's the 26-year-old son, who sleeps a lot.
Jenni Munday: I've Always Liked This Place: a farce; I was laughing so hard at that I didn't take any notes!
