The Space Between by Chelsea Black
“Nina is a young woman who just wants her mother Maria to accept her. When they find out her brother Kenneth’s spinal injury may be cured by a new medical breakthrough, Maria takes the opportunity to talk to her daughter about her weight. Mother and daughter must navigate their fraught relationship while also being there for Kenneth.”
MARIA: Late 40s-early 50s, Latinx woman. Mother of Nina and Kenneth. Average height and weight. Always looks professional and well-dressed.
NINA: Early 20s, Latinx woman of mixed heritage. Maria’s daughter. Very overweight for her height. Ideally at least a size 20.*
KENNETH: Late teens, Latinx man of mixed heritage. Maria’s son. Average height, perhaps slightly overweight, in a wheelchair.
God's God by Ken Pederson
Do you sometimes wonder about what really happens once you die? What if you arrived in the afterlife and you discovered that God himself was praying for a better life? That is the situation we encounter in "God's God."
GG delivers an avant garde exploration of what might happen once we ‘meet our maker.’ Its world is populated with a passive agnostic, a prickly non-believer, a deity overwhelmed by his day-to-day responsibilities, and the angels that run the place. God’s God examines the role of hope, belief, and purpose in a 30-minute package that seeks to get its audience to reconsider how their choices here on earth might best bring out the divinity in all us.
GOD: spritely, wise, barefoot old man also plays BABALU
CASSIA: also plays DAUGHTER, female, dies and is taken to heaven where she meets KAFIR and GOD. Gratitude never crossed her mind before going to heaven.
KAFIR: also plays FISH, male, a skeptic in prayer. He is used to confirming theories through tests. He's not interested in helping God answer his prayer mail.
ANGEL SANA: female assistant to God
ANGEL URIEL: male assistant to God
Diverted by Matt Mercurio
In a not too distant future, two minorities of different color meet in a senseless war they can't be sure of each other's allegiance in. An unknown, looming threat to their survival lingers along with everything else that comes with being a minority in America thrusts upon its citizens. In a time where civilities die more each day, can these two very different men find some common ground
SHAKIR: mid 30 to late 50’s, Black. He is a jaded, hardened man on the exterior scarred by a world that constantly betrays him. Quick witted and even quicker to anger. He is unflinchingly honest and there’s a poetic rhythm to how speaks. Fiercely devoted to those close to him and the causes he believes in.
SALVADOR: slightly older than SHAKIR, Brown. He carries a remarkable lightness about him despite the circumstances. Glass half full kind of guy. Speaks with a slight accent. Everyone’s big brother. Fiercely devoted to those close to him and the causes he believes in.
CHASTITY: early 20’s, white. She is physically imposing and speaks as though she owns every room because she more than likely does. A leader, but lacks the patience to understand the totality of people.
SOLDIERS 1 & 2: early 30’s, white. Do as they’re told. Not particularly sharp.
