Synopsis

Mrs. Stancliffe’s Rose Cottage Bed & Breakfast has been successful for many years. Her guests (nearly all women) return year after year. Her next door neighbor, the elderly, silver-tongued, “Bud the Stud” Davis believes they come to spend time with him in romantic liaisons, and Mrs. Stancliffe reluctantly accepts the fact that “Bud the Stud” is, in fact, good for business. Add to the guest list three older women, and a retired chemist who has developed a blue pill called “Venusia,” after Venus the goddess of love, to increase the libido of menopausal women. The pill has not been tested. When Bud gets his hands on some of the Venusia pills, the fun begins, as he attempts to entertain all three women! “If you need a rollicking good time filled with laughter, this is a mustsee play.” - The City Wire, Fort Smith, Arkansas.

Synopsis

Mavis Templeton Hollister returns home for the night to Brynwood Cottage in northern England, surprised that her new husband, Edgar Hollister is still alive.

After filing a missing persons report on her husband, Mavis is visited by the police who inform Mavis that her cat was found dead from ingesting a poisoned cup of cocoa meant for Edgar. Do you think she’s trying to kill her husband? Add to the zaniness, Susan Hollister, the dimmest bulb in the chandelier, and Edgar’s only child by his first wife. Mavis is distressed to learn that upon Edgar’s death, the bulk of his estate will go to Susan. But if the girl suddenly dies . . .

Synopsis

Following the end of the Civil War, many former slaves, anxious to leave the South and the increasing disappointments and dangers of Reconstruction, took advantage of The Homestead Act and went West to build new lives for themselves and their families. Many of these homesteaders were black women who overcame tremendous odds to work their own land and make a place for themselves in an often harsh and forbidding environment. Set in 1898, FLYIN’ WEST is the story of some of these African-American female pioneers who settled, together, in the all-black town of Nicodemus, Kansas. “Pearl Cleage’s FLYIN’ WEST…[is] a real crowd pleaser, and its characters have humor and vitality…Cleage [is] a natural-born storyteller…” —Washington Post.
