Having Hope at Home




Carolyn has one evening to cook a three-course turkey dinner, make peace with her parents, get married in her grandmother's dress and hide the fact that she's in labor. What could possibly go wrong? Having Hope at Home is a side-splitting look at a family learning to love again. On a cold winter night, in a drafty farmhouse, Carolyn goes into labor just as her parents arrive for dinner. She can't tell them she's having a home birth, as her father is the head of gynecology at the local hospital. She has to pretend everything is normal including passing off the midwife as the vet. Good intentions dissolve as modern medicine meets midwifery in a torrent of family feuding over where this baby should be born. As tensions rise between the three stubborn generations of family members, so does the laughter. It takes some serious truth-telling and a baby's birth to heal the rift in this hilarious, heartwarming story of forgiveness and hope.

End Game: The Roleplay

Story Synopsis

After the loss of a friend, Fred, this group of gamers gather together in his memory. They find out that on his request they are to play a game that he had written for them after he was gone. The players grow and change throughout the game as their game characters live the story for the audience. The game was supposed to be finding a treasure, but leads to another quest, one that leads into danger and darkness. See the connections between the players and their characters, as they all pay homage to the passing of a friend.

Role Descriptions

George: (non-combat) The DM or Story Teller of the group. Has a vast imagination but spends most of his time hiding in the basement with his imaginary friends (the audience) due to a childhood experience. He has the capability of being a good friend, a good leader but he needs to trust the world again.

Chrissy: (non-combat) Generally a level headed player who is cautious and thinks things through. Very patient with the others but is insecure with her own abilities and choices.Secretly likes James but is too afraid to say anything to him.

Mika: (combat) A Cleric in the Order of Light, she has followed her mentor’s every footstep. Now that he is gone and his mantel falls upon her shoulders she must find the courage and strength to stand on her own.

Charlie: (non-combat) A young player who just has bad rolls. A nice guy but doesn’t have many social skills. Follows the group as a groupie since he has never had friends before.

Brandis: (combat) Young naïve character who wants to be a hero, wants to do the right thing, but always seems to fail at it.

Justin: (non-combat) An emotional person who’s impatience often leads him to vocal outbursts.

Adaric: (combat) Rash and impatient, lusts after gold, but when pushed and shoved will do the honorable thing.

James: (non-combat) A selfish self-assured guy who looks out for himself so much that he is blind to everything around him but it is all a shield.

Shakarn: (combat) He is that guy, that guy that talks too much, that guy that thinks of himself too much. Always has some cocky come-back and never forgets to joke – not even when his luck has run out.

Lonestar/Laundry and Bourbon



SCTs One Night Only One Acts

presents

James McLure’s

Lone Star/Laundry and Bourbon

Lone Star

The play takes place in the cluttered backyard of a small-town Texas bar. Roy, a brawny, macho type who had once been a local high-school hero, is back in town after a hitch in Vietnam and trying to reestablish his position in the community. Joined by his younger brother, Ray (who worships him), Roy sets about consuming a case of beer while regaling Ray with tales of his military and amorous exploits. Apparently Roy cherishes three things above all; his country, his sexy young wife, and his 1959 pink Thunderbird. With the arrival of Cletis, the fatuous, newlywed son of the local hardware store owner, the underpinnings of Roy's world begin to collapse as it gradually comes out that Ray had slept with his brother's wife during his absence and, horror of horrors, has just demolished his cherished Thunderbird. But, despite all, the high good humor of the play never lapses, and all ends as breezily and happily as it began.

Laundry and Bourbon

The setting is the front porch of Roy and Elizabeth's home in Maynard, Texas, on a hot summer afternoon. Elizabeth and her friend Hattie are whiling away the time folding laundry, watching TV, sipping bourbon and Coke, and gossiping about the many open secrets which are so much a part of small-town life. They are joined by the self-righteous Amy Lee who, among other tidbits, can't resist blurting out that Roy has been seen around town with another woman. While the ensuing conversation is increasingly edged with bitter humor, from it emerges a sense of Elizabeth's inner strength and her quiet understanding of the turmoil which has beset her husband since his return from Vietnam. He is wild, and he is unfaithful, but he needs her, and she loves him. And she'll be waiting for him when he comes home no matter what others may say or think.

AGES 17+

“Lone Star”

Directed by Micha Underwood

ROLES: (3m)

Roy - The older brother who just got back from Vietnam. Constantly drinking, and the more he drinks the louder he gets.

Ray - The younger brother, kind-hearted and a bit dimwitted. He is hiding something from his brother which makes him very on edge.

Cletus - Nerd, who has been bullied by Roy for years.

THE STORY:

The play takes place in the cluttered backyard of a small-town Texas bar. Roy, a brawny, macho type who had once been a local high-school hero, is back in town after a hitch in Vietnam and trying to reestablish his position in the community. Joined by his younger brother, Ray (who worships him), Roy sets about consuming a case of beer while regaling Ray with tales of his military and amorous exploits. Apparently Roy cherishes three things above all; his country, his sexy young wife, and his 1959 pink Thunderbird. With the arrival of Cletus, the fatuous, newlywed son of the local hardware store owner, the underpinnings of Roy's world begin to collapse as it gradually comes out that Ray had slept with his brother's wife during his absence and, horror of horrors, has just demolished his cherished Thunderbird. But, despite all, the high good humor of the play never lapses, and all ends as breezily and happily as it began.

“Laundry and Burbon”

Directed by Richie “Twist” Oliver

Roles: (3f)

Elizabeth - Roy’s Wife. Clearly changed by the war herself and the effect it had on her husband. She loves gossip.

Hattie - Elizabeth’s oldest friend. She and Elizabeth are like sisters and she also loves gossip.

Amy Lee - Cletus’ wife. A self righteous town gossip.

The Story:

The setting is the front porch of Roy and Elizabeth's home in Maynard, Texas, on a hot summer afternoon. Elizabeth and her friend Hattie are whiling away the time folding laundry, watching TV, sipping bourbon and Coke, and gossiping about the many open secrets which are so much a part of small-town life. They are joined by the self-righteous Amy Lee who, among other tidbits, can't resist blurting out that Roy has been seen around town with another woman. While the ensuing conversation is increasingly edged with bitter humor, from it emerges a sense of Elizabeth's inner strength and her quiet understanding of the turmoil which has beset her husband since his return from Vietnam. He is wild, and he is unfaithful, but he needs her, and she loves him. And she'll be waiting for him when he comes home—no matter what others may say or think.

The Music Man

The Music Man

By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best. Meredith Willson's six-time, Tony Award-winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957 and is a family-friendly story to be shared with every generation.

The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys' band that he vows to organize – this, despite the fact that he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain's fall.
