What we leave behind is often the last for others to give up.  Such is the dilemma for Tom in ASHES, the first play in this pairing of two one acts that pit the needs of one character against those of another.  In ASHES, the bereaved Tom has lost his beloved wife and all that remains are her ashes.  For him, those ashes belong in a family plot where he and those who loved her can gather to honor and remember her.  But his wife, Barbara, had other ideas and her ghost confronts Tom on an isolated beach where he struggles to follow her wishes to have her ashes scattered in the sea.   STONESKIPPERS is a quirky yet alarming story of a man longing to become the Stoneskipping Champion of the World and the anguish of a starving homeless woman living on the beach where he practices.  The conflict between real need and trivial pursuit reaches a climatic ending with only one getting his/her wish.  Robert R. Lehan, who brings a lifetime of experience in theatre to his work, notes that STONESKIPPERS is an anatomy of revolution fostered by the conflict between the “haves” and the “have-nots” and warns “there will be shots fired.”  Both plays are certain to trigger an emotional response from the audience.    $15 Single-Use Copyright Fee plus $30 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.  Professional Theatre Royalties Calculated on Application.
