A Behanding In Spokane - Martin McDonagh
Directed By: Frank L. Danko

A mysterious man named Carmichael has been searching for his missing left hand for 27 years. Two bickering lovebirds, Toby and Marilyn, claim to be in possession of his long-ago severed appendage, and look to collect the reward that Carmichael is offering for its return. An eccentric hotel clerk, Mervyn, gets in the middle of the transaction, and his presence threatens to spoil the proceedings.

Character Breakdown:

Carmichael - Male, 40-60

One-handed man in search of his other hand; doesn't take shit from anyone.

Ethnicity: Caucasian

Toby - Male 20-30

A petty drug dealer in over his head trying to impress his white girlfriend.
Ethnicity: African-American

Marilyn - Female 20-30
Toby's cute but not terribly bright girlfriend.
Ethnicity: Caucasian

Mervyn - Male 25-45
Hotel Desk clerk with a curiosity with heroism.
Ethnicity: Open

The Zoo Story - Edward Albee
Directed By: Kevin Mundy

A man sits peacefully reading in Central Park. There enters a second man. He is a young, unkempt, and undisciplined vagrant where the first is neat, ordered, well-to-do and conventional. The vagrant is a soul in torture and rebellion. He longs to communicate so fiercely that he frightens and repels his listener. With provocative humor and unrelenting suspense, the young savage slowly, but relentlessly, brings his victim down to his own atavistic level as he relates a story about his visit to the zoo.

Jerry - Male 25-40

Caucasian male, in his late twenties; a middle-class actor, working in a restaurant; not poorly dressed, but carelessly. What was once a trim and a lightly muscled body has begun to go to fat; and while he is no longer handsome, it is evident that he once was. His fall from physical grace should not suggest debauchery; he has, to come closet to it, a great weariness.

Peter - Male 40-60

a publishing executive and family man, Peter is reading in Central Park at the top of the play, when he is interrupted by Jerry; their conversation, which eventually escalates into violence, is the centerpiece of "The Zoo Story"; Peter embodies convention and propriety, and seems to have achieved the American Dream
