Scotland Road
 
Presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Scotland Road, finds a young woman in the last decade of the 20th century floating on an iceberg in the middle of the North Atlantic. When rescued she says only one word: Titanic. During the course of the play, an expert on the sinking of the liner tries to get the woman named Winifred to confess she is a fake and reveal her true identity.
 
 “A subtle play of ideas masquerading wonderfully as an edge of your seat mystery, Hatcher’s insights are perceptive, satisfying and a bit unsettling.” – Minneapolis Star-Tribune
 
Women and War
 
Women and War, presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc., is a collection of fictional stories based on historical fact told by generations of Americans impacted by conflicts from The Great War to the War in Afghanistan. These are tales of sacrifice, love, determination and hope told by those who bravely persevered on the home front and on the battlefield.

 “Awe inspiring. Playwright Cunningham is a magician delivering the internal voices of multiple generations of women who served as wives, nurses, sweethearts and officers spanning from WWI to Afghanistan.” – United Stages
