A Kid Like Jake by Daniel Pearle
A Kid Like Jake is a “dramedy” that is set on the eve of admissions for Manhattan’s private schools. Alex and Greg are working on getting their son Jake, a four-year-old who prefers Cinderella to G.I. Joe into a great school. However, Jake’s behavior becomes irregular and volatile. This causes other adults in his life to wonder if his fondness of dress-up might be cause for concern.
Words, Words, Words by David Ives
“Words, Words, Words” is a short play about Kafka, Milton, and Swift, three intelligent chimpanzees who are put in a cage together under the experimenting eye of a never seen Dr. Rosenbaum, a scientist testing the hypothesis that three apes hitting keys at random on typewriters for an infinite amount of time will almost surely produce Shakespeare’s play Hamlet.
The Philadelphia by David Ives
Confident smooth-talker Allen decides to relax and grab a bite to eat at a local restaurant. He’s met there by his friend, Mark, who’s having a strange day: everything he wants he cannot achieve, and he has been gradually losing his mind. Allen explains that Mark is in an anomalous pocket of reality called a “Philadelphia”, where he can never get what he wants.
Sure Thing by David Ives

And the President wants a way out of Watergate. In a last-ditch attempt to restore his credibility he will address the nation’s top news editors at their convention in Walt Disney World. What could possibly go wrong?
