Ashes to Ashes (3 characters: 1 Woman, 1 Man, 1 either way)

Ex-couple liberal Sara and right-winger Jefferson are polar opposites about everything — except their love and devotion for their two, newly deceased, filthy-rich best friends. Trapped by the time-constraints of their friends' will, the two are forced to spend the next 16 days, 21 hours and 32 minutes together, scattering ashes across Europe.  Complicating matters for them is the mysterious stranger Alexa/Alex who shows up everywhere they go. Whether they make it or not, the audience is in for a bumpy and funny ride.

Biking With Andrew Scott

A dark comedy about the effect Andy's suicide has on those closest to him, especially that of his life-long, control-freak, best friend Stephanie. Trying desperately to hold everyone else's life together, hers quickly falls apart. Things get more and more complicated as Andy's ghost tries to "help," and his born-again mother, gay lover, and tarot card reader all interfere with Stephanie's plans. The play follows these colorful characters as they go through all of the stages of grief in order to come to terms with Andy's death.  To download some preview pages, click here:  Biking With Andrew Scott   

Biking With Andrew Scott enjoyed a successful run at the Write Act Repertory Theatre in Hollywood, CA (April 10 - May 17, 2008)

The Tolucan had this to say: "Delivered with heartbreaking authority by playwright Debbie Bolsky, this story is at times gentle, brutal, clever and sweet, and always an incredible ride."

Backstage West stated: "The twist: From the opening scene onward, Andy appears as a ghost, and only Stephanie can see and speak to him. This plot device offers the production's best moments, thanks to several honest, tender moments, well-crafted by Bolsky and handled with reserved yet palpable emotion by Brown and Crabtree."

This screw-ball comedy is about ALEXANDRA (Alex), a budding young filmmaker who, out of desperation, takes a job in the spiraling vortex of Monumental Studios.
