DOG by Marla Porter
In DOG, a young family faces a common problem that threatens to break them apart.

She organizes the Austin Writers’ Breakfast meetup group, works as a policy editor with the Texas Workforce Commission, and lives with her dog Mimi in North Austin.
TEA TIME by Raymond V. Whelan
This is London. Early fall 1986. Two bookies want fast cash. Sandy needs bread for business in Dublin, also for his imminent date with Laura, one brill Kensington girl. Wally needs dough to pay for his father’s burial. Lysis the barmaid offers funds from her Uncle Jasper who wants to bet the Boston Red Sox will win the World Series.
Raymond V. Whelan is a proud member of ScriptWorks Austin. He has participated in Frontera Fest since 2012.
MYSTERY-BOUFFE 2017 – A COMEDY IN SIX ACTS (working title) by James E. Burnside
The Amerikan Ship of State is sinking. The Contemptibles pull together to rescue the ship with the inspiration of their fearless leader. They throw open the gates of Hell to toss in the illegals, the queer, the brown. They tear down the gates of Heaven to drag out the “peacemakers” who would allow terrorists to destroy us. The Liberals wring their hands and whine.
James E. Burnside is a playwright, a member of ScriptWorks’ board, and a helluva bean dip-maker.
