Synopsis: Set in an upscale Italian restaurant on a Friday night, Casa D’Angelo follows three concurrent disasters slowly unfolding through the evening: A young woman, Florence, finds that the man who invited her out had asked her on a double date, bringing another woman and leaving her dateless, while, one table over, a man named James struggles to impress his uninterested and unfaithful wife on the night of their sixth anniversary, and, all the while, he is under attack by members of the restaurant’s staff, who seem to have him confused with someone else. A very funny and very strange play, it takes a look at the ways that people try and fail to communicate with one another.

Synopsis: A typical scene in a high school cafeteria and a NOT so typical scene in a high school cafeteria.
Author: John Ferraro Director: John Ferraro
Synopsis: This play follows a writer’s work on a play. It goes through the writing process and deals with some of the issues a writer comes across while writing. While that is going on, two actors will play the characters in the play being written on stage and will provide a visual for the audience of what the writer is creating. A little confusing, I know. Think of it like a play within a play. Should be fun.
