Original, Entertaining, Banal, Fast-paced, Multiple plays

See it if You like multiple one-act plays from new playwrights. Hit or miss, in terms of story line or acting.

Don't see it if You only want to see a good full size play, this can be a mixed bag since the plays are original plays by fairly new playwrights.
