A zany new comedy described by Downs, author of the two previous NSTC hits, Cockeyed and Mad Gravity) as "the first new Chekhov play in a hundred years!" The comedy follows the adventures of Boris and Stan, two Hollywood screenwriters who have been hired by Disney to adapt Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard into a new movie for Mel Gibson. You will certainly recognize many iconic Chekhovian characters as they pursue love, longing, life and loss at the Dantchenko Colony for Artists and Creative Inquiry, Moscow, Idaho! [ ... more ]

"Baggage" follows two annoying thirty-somethings who accidentally take each other's bags at JFK airport, then - for reasons known only to the playwright - decide to start dating. The title has more than one meaning, referring not only to a mix-up of luggage at the airport, but also the emotional impediments we tend to carry through life. Audiences get bad dates, break-ups, reconciliation - even a shrink peddling his books to them - and the crowd. There's kung pao chicken and the fortune "Stay away from chocolate." [ ... more ]
