ORANGE FLOWER WATER
David Larson and Beth Youngquist, after years of maintaining a platonic friendship, begin an adulterous affair with disastrous consequences.
“Uncommonly intense and intimate ninety-minute drama…quirky, raw and nervy”
MISTAKES WERE MADE
B-list Off-Broadway producer Felix Artifex gets in way over his fast-talking head when he takes on the first world-premiere of his long and chequered career.
“An exquisite piece of comic writing…I won't be missing anymore of his plays, and neither should you."”
—The New Yorker.
Hailed by critics as an “an Our Town for our time,” THE PAVILION is by turns poetic and comic, romantic and philosophical.
“…clever, sharply drawn…very funny…”
Mr. Wright’s other e-Script titles include RECENT TRAGIC EVENTS and LADY. They are all available on the Scene Partner WebStore for only $9.99 each.
