**I Rise In Flame, Cried the Phoenix by Tennessee Williams**

From the author of timeless masterpieces like "A Streetcar Named Desire" and "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," Tennessee Williams was a titan of 20th-century theater, with many of his plays adapted for the big screen. He collaborated with iconic actors such as Marlon Brando.

**THE STORY:** Meet Lawrence, Frieda, and Bertha Brett. We encounter Lawrence at the twilight of his career, embodying the erratic, inspired, ill-tempered genius struggling to find peace in life.

**All Cotton by Shel Silverstein**

Grammy Award-winning poet Shel Silverstein, known for his hit song “A Boy Named Sue,” brings us madcap antics in a seemingly simple clothing store where nothing is quite what it seems.

**THE STORY:** Jill is livid when the blouse guaranteed not to shrink shrinks six sizes, and Rachel, the store clerk, refuses a cash refund. But Jill, it turns out, is a witch, and when she doesn’t get her way, she casts a spell on the entire store.

**The Actor by Horton Foote**

Pulitzer Prize winner Horton Foote, who earned an Oscar for his "To Kill a Mockingbird" screenplay, fell in love with acting at just 10 years old. His short play "The Actor" might be part fiction, part autobiography. You decide.

**THE STORY:** This play humorously and poignantly tells the tale of a young man passionate about acting, willing to make any sacrifice to pursue his dream despite his parents’ opposing expectations. It's a charming exploration of artistic ambition from one of modern theatre’s greatest voices.

**Opposites Attract by Pamela Whitchurch**

STAR Society President and Co-Founder Pamela Whitchurch continues her father’s legacy of writing short plays and skits. While therapy has its place, her play "Opposites Attract" shows the humorous side of our quirks.

**THE STORY:** A new therapy group session begins. Will they survive the first meeting, or will their differences bring them together?
