New Plays Festival, Volume Three
The six one-act plays in this collection were first performed in the New Plays Festival at Gardner-Webb University in 2005. The Festival is an initiative of the theater program at GWU dedicated to developing new plays and encouraging early-career playwrights. "Belt Play" is a serious exploration of the aftermath of child abuse. The dark comedy "Chess Club" is an eccentric tale of survival and cannibalism. "Brainstorm" spoofs the world of corporate business and its excessive investment in stupidity. "Small, Medium, Large" is a riotous comedy exposing the folly behind coffee shop cup sizes. "Curiosity Kills" is a ridiculous comedy about friendship and the untimely death of a cat. "The Old Man and His Will" explores the meaninglessness of a man's life devoted to the pursuit of money.
