Get shaken and stirred at this year’s Cocktail Plays with four short plays by Philly playwrights Mark J. Costello, Bill D’Agostino, Alexandra King, and Megan Schumacher. The plays will be presented for five performances on September 17, September 18, and September 19, 2018.
Directed by Marcia Ferguson, Cocktail Plays: Round 2 features Marissa Kennedy, Mary Pat Walker, and Mark Wheeler performing multiple roles in four world-premiere short plays:
Date Night by Mark Costello
People mourn in many different ways…but when a mother and her son deal with loss similarly, hilarity ensues.
Superlosers by Megan Schumacher
Three would-be super villains, one bag of supplies, and a missing jetpack: but will the superheroes even notice?
Out of Time by Bill D'Agostino
Losing track of time makes memories of love closer and reality much more distant.
Delivery by Alexandra King
In a world without potable water, how far will you go to save yourself, your family, and your community?.
Guests are invited to arrive an hour before show time to enjoy libations paired with the evening’s plays, as well as light dinner fare and small plates.
