The Cost of Winning and None of the Above
THE COST OF WINNING A drama by Denise Derk Directed by Michael Gilboe and Denise Derk For some teens, college is a given. For others, it is a nearly unobtainable dream, but possibly within their grasp if they can outplay and outshine all the others on the gridiron. Two teen boys struggle to decide how far they will go to make their athletic ambitions a reality in this gripping play that explores the pressures on today’s young athletes to win at all costs. It combines a coming of age story for life-long best friends with intrigue and subterfuge by the town leaders to bring glory once again to their fading town. An honest look at the game that rules Friday nights in countless communities across America. NONE OF THE ABOVE a comedy by Jenny Lyn Bader Directed by Jennifer Levens NONE OF THE ABOVE: A high school girl answers her upper east side apartment door expecting to see her drug dealer. It is her SAT tutor instead. Things degerate from there. First, Jamie tried to get out of being tutored and then she tries to cut a deal with the tutor, Clark. He doesn't have much symphony for her plight. They clash right away and seem to have very different values and priorities. But as the play progresses, Jamie and Clark negotiate an unusual pact. Soon enough, all the snap judgments these two have about each other will get thrown out the window, and they'll both be surprised by what they learn.
