North of Providence by Edward Allen Baker
A contemporary drama by Edward Allen Baker set in 1980s suburban Rhode Island. A brother and sister are brought together by their father’s rapidly failing health. A discovery is made in their past that reveals why they’ve grown apart.

Welded (excerpts) by Eugene O’Neil
An excerpt from the obscure and rarely performed comedy by Eugene O’Neill. This piece, set in 1920s New York society, covers the relationship between a vain playwright and the woman who starred in his acclaimed plays as they battle it out for center stage. Was it his plays that made her a star or her performance that made them hits?
