Virtual Staged Reading Series

Summer Night: Anna & Helen, two friends in a small town.  Helen married Charles and her life gradually no longer included Anna.  The town was recently the scene of a grisly murder of Lavinia, a popular friend of Ana & Helen.  Anna unexpectedly calls Helen, asking her to come over to her big empty house because she’s nervous about the murder, but they find out that they both need protection from the murderer! 


Black Door:   Harold Landry, an aspiring history & archeology professor with a passion for exploring and discovery.  He’s in the midst of an archeological treasure hunt in a very rural section of Mexico.  Harold finds something more than he bargained for when he teams up with Rosalia, daughter of an adventurous Mexican grandfather who has a secret.
