'Indescribable Snack' by Liza Birkenmeier: Two friends connect over marketing strategy and high school musicals.
'The Quickest Way' by Lucy Boyle: Lillian has heard the best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. Literally.
'Antares Returning' by Ryan King: In space, no one can hear you cuddle.
'All Is Bright' by Dan Moyer: Santacon gets emotional.
'Alone in Our Sex' by Matthew Paul Olmos: Can we ever truly be unique in our approach to new relationships?
'Rodman' by Leah Nanako Winkler: A father and daughter come together on the court.
“How spurned lovers rebound from ill-fated affairs was the theme this year, one handled deftly by some of the writers involved and used as a loose pretext, or downright ignored, by some others. It was hard to see any connection to the evening’s theme in the cryptic ‘Robert and Lucy’…'Antares Returning' is both improbable and clichéd…‘All is Bright’ concluded the series and offered the most nuanced material…It is funny, absurd, sorrowful and touching.” Full Review
