When: Wed., Dec. 4, 7 p.m. 2013

Cornflower Blue by Andrew Black
A teenage girl with a terminal illness receives a visit from the Make-A-Wish foundation to find out if she has unrealized dreams she would like to fulfill. When her mother learns that her daughter’s “Make-A-Wish” is to have a dream wedding to her boyfriend, it forces her to confront her own deepest fears about her daughter’s condition as well as unresolved issues she has concerning her own difficult marriage.

Andrew Black is a native Hoosier who ran away from Indiana for 30 years but recently returned to enjoy the moonlight on the Wabash. He has an MFA in playwriting from Ohio University, and his plays (many focusing on men who love other men) have been produced in theaters large and small across the United States.

Castle Gardens by Gari Williams
Castle Gardens takes place in a small Indiana town in the year before Pearl Harbor. We see how the world begins to intrude on the lives of three generations of women and the young adults who frequent their family's restaurant.

Gari Williams is an Indianapolis-based playwright, teacher, actor and director.

A New Play by Matt Benedict
Matt Benedict (M.A. English, M.F.A. Creative Writing, University of Notre Dame) resides in South Bend, where he writes plays and prose.
