- INCHES by William Miracle
A young woman wakes up after a short hike to her favorite secluded location in the woods to find that she has been attacked. With no help nearby and her legs broken, she must crawl up a hill to the hiking trail, relying on her own will to survive. But she is not alone. Once she reaches the top of the hill she must confront her assailant, who has sinister plans of his own.
- TWO WAIT ALONE by Jhad Francis
In the near future, a civil war rages in an unnamed city. In her apartment, a mother lies catatonic, in grief after her daughter has been killed fighting for the rebel side. A wounded young man appears, pulling himself into the apartment, despite the mother’s resistance. Over two days, the two maintain an unwilling coexistence in this space, understanding each other through fragmented conversation. Yet the mother remains distrustful – the man seems to be keeping himself there longer than needed. As the fighting draws closer, the motivations of the young man are revealed. Each character must decide who leaves and who stays in this space, and how to release themselves from shame and loss.
- EMMIE & FAMILY by Valarie Gold
Emmie & Family is a drama that focuses on the perspective of a young girl when her mom doesn’t show up for Thanksgiving dinner. Family members go to Emmie to figure out what’s going on and it’s implied that Emmie’s father is abusive towards his wife. After a chaotic family dinner, her father insists he didn’t hurt her mom. Emmie believes him, but it’s never certain if the father is abusive or not.
- BROCKING by Stephan Tijerina
Brock has to meet his girlfriends parents for the first time, but there is a huge problem: When Brock gets into a situation that is uncomfortable for him, he feels like he is performing on a theater stage, literally.
