Whether a burden or a blessing, life often feels like a never ending series of tests. In Craig Kenworthy’s intriguing collection of short plays, each character is faced with a life-altering decision. In" But That’s Not What We Ordered", two parents must determine if a “normal” baby is worth raising in a futuristic society where a child’s attributes are carefully pre-selected. “So Much for Seatbelts” forces two young people to choose who lives or dies in a trapped car when there is only enough air for one to survive. Throughout the seven-play collection, Kenworthy challenges the audience to check “A” or “B” then skillfully leaves them debating if there was a single right answer. After all, when faced with “Life’s Little Exams”, no one is privy in advance to the outcome. You’ll often laugh and sometimes cry and always find yourself searching right along with the characters for the right answer. $20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
