A down-and out skid row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. Soon “Audrey II” grows into an ill-tempered, foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore who offers him fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite, finally revealing itself to be an alien creature poised for global domination!

Synopsis: In this brilliant and powerful drama, Sister Aloysius, a Bronx school principal in the 1960′s, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects Father Flynn of improper relations with one of the male students.
Two strangers, a man and a woman (late 40′s to middle 50′s) board a San Francisco BART train at 4:30 AM. They’re alone in the car, each is married, both are doing the New York Times crossword. She’s an organized, sensible, psychologist. He’s a free spirited, unemployed ad exec. She is a crossword pro, he always quits. When he tosses his puzzle away, she snaps, “Crosswords are a metaphor for life, those who finish, succeed, those who don’t, fail.” Now he vows to finish. Why? He’s a competitor and she happens to be lovely. This starts an 80 minute ride described by critics as “Hilarious,” “Witty,” “Romantic,” “Poignant,” “Wonderfully entertaining.” Two opposites in an enclosed space, attacking each other’s values but also being swayed and intrigued by them. They each have serious life problems that the other helps them solve. Their trip is filled with unpredictable but believable surprises. As the train ride ends it’s obvious each of them has been changed for the better. And we’re all dying to know if these two will meet again.
Jokes, riddles, puns, a puppet and swordplay abound as Mrs. Shakespeare comes from the past to “battle” the Dude over movies, musicals, novels and her husband’s plays.
Starring: Jennifer Levens and Chad MacFarlane
