This year’s Radius Playwrights Festival features the following plays:

Pandora Shakes Things Up – by Maizy Scarpa
Directed by Tod Randolph

Performed in verse, this modern myth envisions Pandora as a curious high-school student who rebels against the norms of love and behavior. Maizy’s play Cirque Du Dismay was part of last year’s Radius New Play Festival.

The Audition by Steve Otfinoski
Directed by James Warwick

An actor’s unique talent leaves a director wondering if he really understands what it means to be an actor and what their performance can contribute to a show. Steve’s play It’s a Tragedy was presented at last year’s Radius New Play Festival.

The Golden Years by Joe Starzyk
Directed by Mike Brady

Mabel and Norman have been together so long that they know everything there is to know about each other. Or do they?

The Kiss by Anne Undeland
Directed by Kim Stauffer

A viewing of Rodin’s sculpture The Kiss causes a woman to question the meaning of love, her marriage, and to ask herself “what if?” The Kiss is by Anne Undeland, a member of BPL’s Berkshire Voices writers group.

The Two Bobs by Barry J. Kaplan
Directed by Mike Dowling

Bill and Jack are friends who ride the train together. On the way home one evening, they have an enigmatic conversation in which all, and nothing, is revealed.

What’s Little Ax Between Friends by Joe Starzyk
Directed by Allyn Burrows

An executioner and his next victim strike up a conversation just moments before the ax falls. Just because your job is to execute someone, doesn’t mean you can’t be friends.

The Radius Playwrights Festival is generously sponsored by The Feigenbaum Foundation.
