LE THÉÂTRE DU GRAND-GUIGNOL by James Burnside
A one-woman play that proves institutional evil and little girls do not mix.
James Burnside has written a dozen full-length screenplays, a novel, and various and sundry articles, short stories, short scripts, and poetry. He has been a finalist in American Zoetrope and a semi-finalist in other contests. His 10-minute play PROCLAMATION 4311 was produced this June in Austin as part of the Out Of Ink 213: SNAPSHOTS.
SPLIT BRANCHES OF THE TEREBINTH by Teresa Stankiewicz
This play explores the minds of three women who each marry the love of their life and subsequently, lose those men to a ‘higher calling’. While their journeys are very different they are also uncannily similar. All three women share their faith, betrayal and recovery with humor and sadness. The play dives into issues of love, loss, and picking up the pieces, universal topics that touch us all.
