“Who’s on First?” is a comedy routine made famous by American comedy duo Abbott and Costello and in 1999, Time named the routine Best Comedy Sketch of the 20th Century.
“Madame President” by Wallace Acton, is an amusing domestic episode. Novelist Spangler would like to read his paper, but wife Victoria (a comic without knowing it) interrupts with a cross word puzzle, her women’s clubs, a retelling of “Hamlet”– until poor hubby is nearly crazy.
“Drowned Out” by Robert Patrick is a comedy about what happens when you are out to dinner and the music is too loud.
“No Nonsense” is an original play written by Laura Sadler-Harperink, Jeannie Brown and Anne Crump, a poignant comedy about two sisters deciding what to do about Mom.
