MOST PRODUCED COMEDIES
Full-length Comedy, 5W, 4M
It's 1942, and the luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotel is under siege as two of Hollywood's biggest divas vie for the same suite. Mistaken identities, overblown egos, double entendres, and one pampered little lap dog round out this fall-down-laughing riot of a comedy. An all-out love note to those wonderful farces of the 30's and 40's.

After eight years of traveling abroad, Avery Sutton is coming home. Home, to the warmth and comfort of his family. Unfortunately, things aren't quite as comfortable as Avery remembers. For starters, the house, poised on the edge of a sink hole, sits at a distinct angle. The dog hasn't been fed in five years. And Aunt Ester is running a profitable phone-sex operation out of the kitchen. Oddly enough, Mom and Dad seem happily oblivious to all of this, as well as the fact that Avery's 97-year-old Grandmother is still alive and living in their home. 37 Postcards shows that you can, in fact, go home again. You just never know what you're going to find.

CLARK GABLE SLEPT HERE
Full-length Comedy, 2W, 3M
As one of the silver screen's brightest stars charms his way through the Golden Globe Awards ceremony, his staff tries to figure out what to do with the dead male prostitute on the bedroom floor of his hotel suite. Award-winning playwright Michael McKeever takes a look behind the closed doors of the Hollywood elite, and presents a jet-black satire on what it means to be a "man" in the make-believe world of motion pictures, where nothing is ever what it seems and closets are used for so much more than hanging up your Tom Ford tuxedo.

SOUTH BEACH BABYLON
Full-length Comedy, 2W, 4M, 2 Dancers (any sex)
Is it possible to create art without selling one's soul? This is the question, artfully, hilariously posed in South Beach Babylon, Michael McKeever's theatrical ode to the daunting task of being an artist in contemporary America. Tracking the lives of five ambitious artists during the weeks leading up to South Beach's epic Art Basel Weekend, this insightful play follows each artist's journey navigating the collision of art and capitalism, pomposity and prestige, and the parts of ourselves we let fall away in our quest for success.
