Mom's been dead for 11 months when she shows up at her husband's birthday party as a ghost on a mission in Phil Olson's world premiere comedy Mom's Gift. To earn her wings, she has to accomplish a task. But what that task is, she still has to figure out. Things get even funnier when it turns out that the only person who can hear or see Mom is her daughter, who has been ordered by the court to be with Dad on his birthday as part of her anger management program. Over the course of the night, the family's secrets slip out -- including one that surprises even the ghost herself. Learn More

Henry Holden's writing is good and the show probably should have just been a showcase of his work. The only exception was probably "Emma" by Troy Whitaker which was entertaining and a passable piece by Dmitry Golovin, mostly because he is a talented actor. The other pieces, not so good especially the short film "Oblivion." That was horrible.
The Third Date by Laurie Morgan: A comedic look at the beginning of a hopeful relationship. A first date leads to a second, which lead to unspoken possibilities for “The Third Date.”
Emma by Troy Whitaker: A man falls in love with a beautiful woman at first sight and does not know how to properly react. He may have had a momentary lapse in judgment.
Make up Sex by Henry Holden: If we are to be honest the best kind of sex is make up sex. See what it can do for a couple who have been married for years and years and years.
The Campaign by Henry Holden: To win a presidential campaign one needs the right campaign manager. Let’s go behind closed doors and see what it takes to win.
The Yiddish Cowboy by Henry Holden: Opposites really do attract. Chassidic Jew meets Lulabell.
Two Old Men by Henry Holden: They have reached the end of their lives, spending it in a Care Center. Very depressing but so many laughs. Really?
The Hitman by Henry Holden: See how a physical disabled actor convinces a casting director to cast him as The Hitman.
D.V.S. by Edgar Mastin: The story of Death Valley Scotty.
Break from Bible Study by Bert Emmett: Thomas and Peggy have been taking an evening Bible Study class at their Methodist Church, but Thomas is feeling that the more he learns the less he knows.
Eventful Night at the Liqueur Store or Happy Halloween by Dmitry Bunin: Would it be easier to commit a crime - rob a liqueur store for example - and get away with it on the night of Halloween, the night when everybody wears costumes and almost half have a weapon in their hands? One night, one guy has decided to try it. That night he will never forget.
Ralph and Conrad by Jimmy Ogburn and Troy Whitaker: Ralph and Conrad, two young roommates, argue about magazines, diets, organization and hygiene. All the while random people constantly interrupt their quarrel. But unless they can figure out what they’re actually fighting about, they may ruin their friendship.
Oblivion by Tom Nikko: A bold story, Oblivion dares to examine the forbidden. What would you do if you were bound to a secret you desperately needed to release, but lived in fear from what it could do if you let it out? Told from a unique perspective, this story shines a light on the power of hope, and finding the courage to confront the struggles of the mind.
