These three plays can be done individually or presented together. "Avenue of the Americas" 2W 3M - Comedy - 50 minutes - A 30-year-old woman on the lam from a New Jersey mental institution becomes the queen of Madison Avenue. Her advertising campaigns are wildly popular, winning awards and blue chip clients-as well as the heart of New York's most eligible bachelor. Still, her commercials wreak havoc with her boss, the Catholic Church, and certain cat owners. Avenue of the Americas is a dark, comic ride that asks: how far would you go to have it all? "Driving Green" 1W 1M - Comedy - 10 minutes - A politically opposite married couple tries to survive going green and a morning commute without killing each other. "Read My Lips" 5W 2M - Comedy - 30 minutes - A play with dance in which a young man comes to terms with the loss of the grandmother that raised him.
