I Rise in Flames, Cried the Phoenix

by Tennessee Williams

Author of such classics as A Streetcar Named Desire and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Tennessee Williams was considered one of the top three foremost playwrights of the 20th Century with many of his pieces adapted for the cinema. He famously worked with actors such as Marlon Brando and Elizabeth Taylor.

The Story

Three characters, Lawrence, Frieda and Bertha Brett. We see Lawrence at the very end of his career, and recognize him as the erratic, inspired, ill-tempered genius who was never able to come to terms with life.

All Cotton

by Shel Silverstein

Grammy Award winning and world-renowned poet Shel Silverstein who penned the likes of “A Boy Named Sue,” teases us with madcap antics that take place in a simple clothing store, where nothing is simple. 

The Story

 Jill is furious because the guaranteed not-to-shrink blouse she bought shrunk six sizes in the wash, and Rachel, the store clerk, won’t give her a cash refund. But Jill, it seems, is a witch, and when she does not get satisfaction, she casts a spell on the store and everything in it.

The Actor

by Horton Foote

Pulitzer Prize winner Horton Foote who won an Oscar for his screenplay, To Kill a Mockingbird, was bitten with the acting bug when he was just 10 years old. Perhaps his short The Actor is part fiction, part autobiography. You be the judge.

The Story

This play tells the hilarious and moving story of a young man, bitten by the acting bug, who’ll make any sacrifice to keep his dream of a theatrical career from being crushed under the weight of his parents’ expectations for him. 

Opposites Attract

by Pamela Whitchurch

STAR Society President and Co-Founder Pamela Whitchurch is following in her father's footsteps. Like him, she has been writing short plays and skits for many years. While therapy is important, sometimes it’s fun to look at the humorous side of our idiosyncrasies, which she does in Opposites Attract. 

The Story

A new therapy group is in session. Will they be able to make it through the first session or will opposites attract?
