The Acts...

"Mrs. Sorken"
Middle aged suburban matron gives a lecture on the meaning of theatre.

"For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls"
Parody of "The Glass Menagerie," where southern belle Amanda tries to prepare her hypersensitive son, Lawrence for the "feminine caller."

"Stye of the Eye"
Parody of Sam Shepard's "A Lie of the Mind" complete with cowboy Jake (or is he good brother Frank today?), feisty no-nonsense Ma with the bad memory, (is-she-dead Beth?), and Jake's sister Mae who's in love with her brother. No problems are solved, but there is 'much' meaning..maybe.

"Nina in the Morning"
Narcissistic, wealthy Nina is attended to by her butler and everyone within her sight. Her past is revealed while she is attempting to get a crueler.

"Wanda's Visit"
Jim and Marsha have been married for 13 years and are bored. Wanda, Jim's old girlfriend shows up for a visit and becomes the guest from hell.

"Business Lunch at the Russian Tea Room"
Chris is a writer who has a business meeting with a new Hollywood hotshot, Melissa. After the meeting Chris tries to write up Melissa's insane idea about a priest and a rabbi...and both clerics appear to help him out.
