My Old Lady: Mathias is an American writer whose deceased father has bequeathed him a large Parisian apartment overlooking the Luxembourg Gardens. The inheritance has arrived just in time as Mathias doesn’t even have enough money to purchase an airline ticket home. He plans to sell the building to a French developer and return to the States a rich man. Unfortunately, the apartment is occupied by a woman, Mathilde, in her 90’s and her daughter. The mother sold the apartment to Mathias’ father under a French law that allows her to live there until she dies plus she gets her expenses paid by the owner. My Old Lady is a charming character study about the relationships Mathias makes with Mathilde and her peculiarly vocal daughter Chloe. His father was not a good parent and Mathias blames him for decades of misfortune.

Top Girls: It’s 1980–or is it? Marlene is throwing a brilliant party to celebrate her promotion to managing director of the Top Girls Employment Agency—over a man vying for the same position. Marlene has invited only five others—all women—to her celebratory fantasia: famous women from history, fiction, and myth. Each of these women has faced adversity in her struggle to succeed. They all mingle over dinner and drink, and get to know each other’s histories. The stories they tell of their struggles through childbearing and loss toward success in a man’s world entertain and inform us…and the rest of the play—which takes place in Marlene’s present.

The Mineola Twins: Myrna and Myra Richards are “almost” identical twins. They differ only on two points-their outlook on life, and their chest size. As 1950s-era high school students in Mineola, Long Island, Myrna, the “good” twin, and Myra, the “evil” twin, share a special twin bond-they hear one another in their dreams. However, they also spend much of their time and energy defining themselves in opposition to one another. The sisters move farther apart as time leaps forward to the 1960s. Myrna has spent time in a mental institution for a nervous breakdown. Myra has just robbed a bank with a radical anti-war group. On the lam, she too is an emotional mess. The final showdown between the sisters happens in the 1980s. Having spent some time in prison for her part in the bank robbery, Myra now runs a Planned Parenthood clinic in Mineola. Myrna, now president of Concerned Americans for America, hosts the popular conservative talk show, Talk Back, Get Back, Bite Back.
