OUR Playwright/Actors lab is Free this month, for all of you to come in try us out..kick the tires and take us for a spin.
There are two subjects you’re not supposed to bring up at a dinner party, they are:

and our three play reading offer first drafts in May and are primarily about …
“Obama: What have we done?” by Michael Monasterial

“Time Bomb: J Edgar Hoover and Malcom X” by Michael Monasterial
In 1963, the United States was on the verge of Civil War. A war over the most volatile issue facing America: Civil rights and Race. These two men had a confrontation of philosophies that could only end one way…explosion.
The third play we are opening as we begin our 2011 season is a 20 minute preview of

“Toussant L’Overture: The Fire that never dies!” by Michael Monasterial
In 1792, a revolution started that would pit a small slave island nation against the three world supers: England, Spain and France. When the people of Haiti won their Independence the man that led them to victory was kidnapped to the Swiss Alps and tortured to death after he was lured in by a peace treaty. His name and his story can never be forgotten.
