Finalist! 2008 Oregon Book Awards, Angus Bowmer Award in Drama
Hat Tricks is an exciting compilation of six scenes and three monologues designed for performance by mature actresses. Covering a range of women's experiences in the second half of life, these nine pieces range from the purely comedic to those that combine humor with thoughtful and sometimes poignant explorations. This is a richly varied collection featuring a single intriguing commonality: Every scene or monologue includes the presence and compelling use of a HAT!

"A fine balance between a sense of comedy verging on the absurd and a sensitivity to the poignant that pricks the heart. . . In hockey, a hat trick occurs when one player succeeds in scoring three times in a single game . Dori Appel's new play Hat Tricks scores more times than I can count.” - Ashland Daily Tidings, Ashland, Oregon

"A funny, sad, wise and often whimsical look at the second half of women's lives. . . Hat Tricks delivers its laughs with heart and chemistry from all concerned. It may be some of the smartest therapy around for women of a certain age." - Medford Mail Tribune, Medford, Oregon
