Six years ago, a 10-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed his little brother. Now, a court-appointed social worker has come for a home visit to determine if the boy should be let off parole early. With One In The Chamber, Ovation Award-nominated playwright (Dysnomia) and HBO Audience Award-winning screenwriter (The Four-Faced Liar) Marja-Lewis Ryan crafts a timely drama about family dysfunction and the effects of gun violence in America. With thematic echoes of Ordinary People and Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf?, One In The Chamber goes right to the heart of a national crisis as seen through its day-to-day impact. Learn More

These were a couple of the best plays I have ever seen! It's hard to say whether I liked the acting better or the writing, but both were superb. I will definitely be looking for anything produced by these people or written by Matt Morillo. I've...continued
Quotes & Highlights
“Clever, nicely directed, and beautifully played” —LA Weekly
“The characters are quite likable, fun, and human, and portrayed with a jaw-dropping show of emotional stamina. This was truly an exquisite piece of theatre. Well done.” —LA Splash
“Tom Pilutik is excellent as Mark, Jessica Moreno is wonderfully selfish and cynical, and JessAnn Smith bares her exceptional talents as a dancer and comic actress.” —reviewplays.com
In the first one-act, “All Aboard the Marriage Hearse”, Sean and Amy are a typical co-habitating, Catholic/Jewish, twenty-something couple living in Manhattan. They work hard, love each other and share common goals in life. Well, sort of. After nearly three years together, Amy wants to get married but Sean does not believe in the institution. The game is on!!! Tonight is the night when they will settle the marriage question once and for all.
“Stay Over”, the second half of Apartment 6 & 9, centers around a couple, Mark and Michelle, trying to reconcile after infidelity and it teaches an important lesson: if you’re trying to kiss and make up on a snowy night, don’t answer the door buzzer. The play spins hilarious comedy out of Mark’s attempt to have his cake and eat it too as he plots to escape with his mistress, Lily, after his reconciliation with Michelle is complete.
The playscript for “Stay Over” is actually Matt Morillo’s comedic adaptation of “Sleepover” by Maria Micheles (2007), a gloomy dramatic treatment of a menage-a-trois in modern New York.
