JULY 9 - KABUL
a lot of mess, said the man, an awful lot of mess, and it isn't just here! it's just different flavors of mess everywhere, mess with different spices in it, meat cooked over mess at a different temperature, with a different mother turning the spit.

JULY 8 - HOMEBODY
a million years ago man made man, then man made meat, then meat made man! leave them all be, they can't be bothered the way we can. locked in the tower, speaking truth to power, how does the loner learn to glower?
A) A play where I successfully kill this fly trapped in my apartment
B) A play where the sun glints dazzlingly off glassy water.
JULY 5 - WHEN DID WE DRY UP
when the dust settles what does it land on? more dust. but where does the dustpan go when the dustbin too has come to dust? just put it all in a pile? just put it all in a big dusty pile? and what if we get allergic? keep your sweat in your body and your dust in the corner.
A) A play where someone desperately needs a drink
B) A play that Dustin Hoffmann could play a role in.
JULY 4 - HOT DOG NATION
forever we are grateful to the hot dog nation! from which all good things come, the fount of sausage casing, upon the heart and soul of the silver and gold! three cheers for burgers and beers! four hurrahs for the wizard of oz! Never forget where you came from or who put you there!
A) A play full of optimism for the future of the meatpacking industry
B) A play featuring one or more characters from a Movie about the Indomitable American Spirit
JULY 3 - INDEPENDENCE EVE
the country is born, and the perineum is tearing. what fever dreams are wrought in labor? independence, fiercely won, dissipated in an instant by a complacent adjacent population, its invocation of god deeply flawed. the nation turns its lonely eyes to you, true believer in the star spangled banner yet waving over graves, engraving its way across the national nationalist parade
A) A play in which someone named Eve wins her independence
B) A play where hot dogs and hamburgers make a nefarious appearance
