Strawberry One-Act Festival

WINNER! Strawberry One-Act Festival, 2006

Winner of over a dozen festivals, including the 2006 Strawberry One-Act Festival (New York premiere). Fin and Euba inhabit a suffocating world. Big dreams, small town prospects. As is their ritual, they sit out on the porch this late Autumn night, watching the cars go by... drinking, bitching, and planning their escape. A great choice for high school and college productions!

"I watch the first in this night of four one-acts nervously, waiting for this play to slap me in the face with yet another farcical representation of Southern culture. Only the slap never comes. Instead, I bear witness to one of the warmest, most sincere, and unapologetically “Southern” plays that I have ever seen. The two women in this particular one-act, titled Fin & Euba, remind me so much of myself that my eyes well up. Both Fin and Euba are preoccupied with escaping their current situation; they feel stuck working factory jobs all the while dreaming of something bigger. They are Southern, yes, and the regional idioms they use garner quite a few audience laughs, but they are not defined one-dimensionally by where they’re from. That is, their culture does not overshadow their character." - Meghan McLeroy, "The South the Theatre Forgot," HOWLROUND


Fin & Euba was first produced in Silver Spring, MD, where it won the 2003 Silver Spring Stage One-Act Festival. It was directed by Michael Kharfen.

In the space of 14 pages, you have an entire community, a shift at the mill, a living circumstance and the deep desperation to escape it, the PLAN for escaping it, material symbols of rebellion and frustration--Buddy the garden gnome, cigarettes and beer...and two distinct characters with histories and personalities as rich as you want them to be.  Yet they might be as invisible as 95 of the next 97 people you walk by on the street.  And the silence they share is the magnet that pulls you in and calls your attention to their desperation.

This is a wonderful play! Great opportunity for scenery chewing as well as humor and heart. Audrey writes with enormous depth. Great for women of all ages!

This play has characters that are sparse with words but in sync, for the most part, with each other. It is the out-of-synch scenes that just make me love these characters more.
