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... continued

Although there were comedic elements, I would not list these as comedies because they dealt with serious issues of romance, trust and commitment. Excellent work.

Description

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.
