In THE BUS STOP, the thoughts and behaviors of eight characters—representing a cross-section of society—are rendered as they wait and watch buses pass without stopping. Characters include an old man on his way to a chess game, a girl on her way to a blind date, and a bureaucrat who has been involved in dirty dealings.
PAPER THIN - Clark has just finished performing another set in what seems to be an endless series of sleepy Midwest towns when yet another groupie comes knocking on his door. Instinct tells him to let it be... but when has he ever listened to his instincts?
FAMILY VALUES - Jason is just passing through on his way to an office supply convention when he encounters local "celebrity" Amanda. They meet, they make out... then their worlds are turned hilariously upside down by an errant phone call and a pocket rocket.

The Marriage Bed opens on the dawn of Valerie and Jennifer's wedding. Val wakes up alone in her bed after a night of fevered dreams. Will the toils of her own past prevent this fifty-five year old feminist from marrying her thirty-something Jewish girlfriend? Though recent legislation now grants rights to same sex couples to form civil partnerships, is this enough to tie the knot?
Join Val and Jeni in their Marriage Bed as its covers unfold and their visions of shared wedding cake bring tears of both joy and fear to their souls. The Marriage Bed is not to be missed.

Gisela Cardenas and Joshua Randall
