New Halloween

Halloween 2050 A.D.

By Joel Ensana

SCI FI/HORROR. In this post-apocalyptic world, all the birds have died, foul-smelling foam bubbles up from the water, and more and more people have to conceal their faces with masks as their horrific faces have the “look of the future.”  It’s Halloween and a mother and her two children arrive on the doorstep of an old woman’s home.  The old woman opens her door to the trick-or-treaters and offers them a few pieces of stale candy and a couple of pennies.  Once inside, the mother and her children discover the old woman’s comfortable, spacious home and can’t believe their eyes.  In this new world, the government has seized private property, and families are forced to share cramped quarters with strangers in public housing.  Spying an opportunity to improve their lives, the family threatens the old woman:  either let them live there or they will take off their masks and report her to the government.  Audiences will be captivated by this suspenseful, spell-binding play. Perfect for Halloween!

New Fantasy/Farce

Over Realm'd

By J. Patrick Moss

FARCE/FANTASY. When some friends gather to play their weekly role-playing game, Realm, a wish goes awry, a portal opens, and they find themselves falling through a void to the lush grasses of a distant, unfamiliar land.  The gamers have entered the realm of Realm and are instantly transformed into a knight, a wizard, a barbarian warrior, a Dwarven Shield Sister, and “Steve the Party Elf.” To return home, the gamers must travel to the Forbidden Temple, where the evil Lich resides, to retrieve a “wishy thingy.”  Along the way, the gamers insult a band of Orcs, imbibe potions from a wayward merchant, and outwit hungry necromancers.  At the Lich’s tomb, they discover the Lich is suffering from a bad case of burnout.  He finds slaying adventurers, raising undead guardians, and plotting and scheming to plunge the world into eternal darkness rather tedious.  There are nonstop laughs in this sidesplitting homage to geekdom!
