8
BY DUSTIN LANCE BLACK

Cast Size: 12 M, 4 F, 3 teen boys

8 is a recreation of the closing arguments of the actual trial Perry v. Schwarzenegger. This trial was the one that overthrew California’s Proposition 8 amendment that placed a ban on gay marriage and nullified any current homosexual marriages. When this trial occurred, it gained national attention, but the courts would not let the trial be aired on public television. Dustin Lance Black took the transcripts of the trial, as well as actual commercials that were aired on television at the time, to recreate exactly what went on in that courtroom when peoples’ rights to marriage were restored.

THE FORGOTTEN CAROLS
BY MICHAEL MCLEAN

6 Principle Roles and a children's choir

A straight-laced nurse is assigned to care for an elderly patient who has a few “psychological problems;” He calls himself “Uncle John” and believes he’s been alive for 2,000 years and has actually met people from the Christmas story that have been “forgotten,” i.e. the innkeeper that turned Joseph and Mary away; the shepherd who fell asleep and missed everything and others. He’s chronicled his encounters with a collection of “forgotten carols” which he sings as he hangs the ornaments he’s collected over the centuries that accompany each unique Christmas song. If only these songs could touch the part of his nurse’s heart that she has long since forgotten. The sold out tour sells over 50,000 tickets each holiday season.

JULIA
BY VINCENT MELOCCHI

3 M, 2 F

Fifty years have passed since Lou broke Julia’s heart. Now he’s returned home to ask her forgiveness, but first must convince her son and a dear family friend that he’s worthy of redemption. Gaining the men’s confidence, Lou attempts to right his wrong, but is thwarted by the discovery that Julia’s memories have been stolen by Alzheimer’s. How do you ask forgiveness from someone who no longer knows you? With the humor of Silver Linings Playbook and the heart of The Notebook, this timeless love story questions the ethics of absolution when confronted with the fragility of the mind.

26 PEBBLES
BY ERIC ULLOA

4M, 2F (Expandable Casting)

On December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza walked into Sandy Hook Elementary School and killed 26 innocent souls before taking his own life. These 26 innocent deaths, like pebbles thrown into a pond, created ripples and vibrations that were felt far beyond the initial rings. This is the story of those vibrations.
Similar in style to The Laramie Project, 26 Pebbles is a heartbreaking and riveting docudrama. Playwright Eric Ulloa conducted interviews with members of the community in Newtown and crafted them into an exploration of gun violence and a small town shaken by a horrific event.
