A new collection of short plays by the anonymous NYC Government official who goes by the pseudonym "S Karlan." More…
In this new collection of plays, we travel deep into the mind of an average couple confronting their daily fears, real or not; explore our obsession with the perfect physique and other desires we don't always want to admit we have; travel to a modern day "film noir" style crime story filled with lust, deception, and a gun in the wrong hands; we go "cat-fishing" for love in a digital realm where nothing is real and the players love it that way; and we make assumptions about the things around us that betray the mind...
See it if you would like 5 short plays performed by a cast of ten talented actors , each with a varying theme of betrayal by one's mind.
Don't see it if you will be influenced by the very low scores given on this forum. It is also not a "100" as it was awarded for Friday's performance.
