Dead Men Grinning At The Moon. Long one act. (1f , 2m). Shakespeare is drinking at the Inn of George Wilkins, a disreputable scoundrel who wants to be playwright. Wilkins thinks Shakespeare is in love with his young waitress, Mary, and blackmails Shakespeare into collaborating on a not very promising play called Pericles by threatening to throw Mary out on the street. Shakespeare turns a clumsy script into a haunting parable of the actual relationship between himself and Mary, while Wilkins becomes increasingly resentful that Shakespeare is so much better than he is. A darkly funny play about the horrors of collaboration and the lost daughters who haunt Shakespeare’s last plays.
Inside. (1f,1m). The first of four short plays in which Alice and Bob, trapped inside in a plague lockdown, investigate the relative virtues of being inside as opposed to being outside, and which is more likely to drive one insane.
Touched. One minute play. (1f, 1m). Bob begins to drive Alice berserk, trapped in their apartment in a plague lockdown, by his complete inability to stop touching his nose.
Holes. (1f, 1m). Bob, beginning to lose his sense of reality while trapped in their apartment with Alice, becomes obsessed with a theory that there are portals in space all around them which are the entrances to other dimensions.
Cleanliness. (1f, 1m). Alice has reached her breaking point after being trapped with Bob in their apartment during a plague lockdown, trying to clean everything in sight over and over again until nothing is left but a little pile of bones.
