A really good collection of short plays: A Shaggy Dog Story by Leigh Kennicott Celebrity Death Match by Rom Watson The Box in the Park by Mona Deutsch Miller Cohn Crosses Over by Joe Godfrey The Memory Box by Dan Berkowitz Who's Afraid Of ...? by Brian Raine All shows involve a box in some fashion.

Definitely worth seeing. ... full review

Director Dan Berkowitz demonstrates how seemingly simple plays can be brightened up with imaginative staging, ranging from naturalistic in one play to hi-style comedy in another. ... full review
