The plays come from award-winning playwrights such as Chris Shaw Swanson of Ohio, author of the first short, “People Like Us,” a dramedy about love and disability. The second show, by award-winning playwright Monica Bauer, of Connecticut, “Answering,” takes audiences through a time-lapse of a woman’s family life. “The Stand In” playwright Molly Campbell hails from the windy city, exploring the role of technology in dating. In “Turning Trixie,” a play by Pittsburgh writer Carol Mullen, a mother’s hobby stirs the life of her daughter. “The Last Anniversary” stars Omaha Theatre Arts Guild award-winning actor Bernie Clark and his wife, Kay Clark, as a couple at the twilight of a relationship. “Eco-babble” by New York playwright Esta Fischer looks at love and the green revolution. The Clark duo again stars in “Feeding Time at the Human House,” a play by California writer David Wiener. The show concludes with Virginia poet and playwright Brett Hursey’s “Wedding Belles” where one girl’s dream wedding is in jeopardy because of a fashion faux pas. “The mood ranges from hilarious and light to serious and heartfelt, but most of the scripts are fairly lighthearted, so it will be a guaranteed good time,” says Craig Bond, Shelterbelt Executive Director.
