TELL-TALE is the story of Emil, the mild-mannered undertaker whose unspoken passion for a local woman leads him to commit crimes and plot a way to confess his true feelings before time runs out.
THE THIEF OF TEARS is Mac who has coldly made her living stealing jewelry from corpses until a final job brings obstacles and revelations about her own past.
THIRTEEN THINGS ABOUT ED CARPOLOTTI is the story of Virginia, the widow of a wheeler-dealer contractor, who discovers that her husband has left her in debt to the banks, her family, and the mob. As Virginia struggles to escape her creditors, a mysterious list of “thirteen things” is offered to her if she can come up with one million dollars in three days. She doesn’t have the money, but does have hidden resources and is saved by an unseen benefactor. As the play ends, Virginia’s benefactor is revealed, along with what the mysterious “thirteen things” are—revelations that resurrect the love and trust thought lost forever.
