The plays are:

The Bees Are Watching by C.J. Ehrlich: Two EPA officials on a smoking break are at odds with new edicts to deregulate environmental protections. Quinn is ready to stand up for her ideals, and resist. Scottie, "just following orders", is being tortured by nature itself.

 

Friends by Choice by Howard Lipson: After over 40 years, two sisters finally reveal an event that could have changed their lives together.

 

The Image of Women by Evelyn Mertens: A young woman wrestles with her inner conflicts over the loss of the slender figure she has always treasured as her pregnancy begins to transform both her body and her perception of herself.

 

The Loud Hours by Pat O'Neill: The ghosts of the past hang heavily during the loud hours of the night as Tom and Jess struggle to let go the night before Jess leaves for college.

 

Mr. Green by Angelo Parra: In a doctor’s office waiting room, a lonely, aged African-American, hoping for a life-saving kidney, waxes pensive and nostalgic to a fellow patient, revealing his unyielding will to carry on. 

 

Clam Diggers and Mussel Suckers by Jane Ann Valentine: Brody and Waverly, two college students on a date, share an unexpectedly tender moment while watching the sunrise over the water at City Island. Can something so impersonal as an app where you swipe right for likes lead to something like love for these two millennials?

What Is Cambridge Analytica?

Cambridge Analytica is a research organization. Apparently, it is funded by the Mercer family, second only to the Koch brothers on the liberal hit list. Both, through their philanthropy, spend millions on various needy organizations like hospitals. What makes them liberal targets is their funding of various conservative think tanks and candidates. I digress.

Cambridge Analytica used Facebook ...

The Best of the Best: Albert Capellini

In the spring of 1991, after answering an ad for a judicial race placed in the local Yorktown paper, I was talked into the unenviable position of running for Yorktown councilman as a Democrat in our then solidly Republican town.

Having been a practicing lawyer since 1974, I felt confident about my qualifications for the position of town judge, but being elected to the Town Board was quite ...

‘Sister Act’: A Musical Like Nun Other

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...

Why Do Kids Hate Math?

Dear Dr. Linda,

I am in second grade and have a problem about math. My teacher just keeps giving me homework and it’s driving me crazy. Because she keeps giving it to me on weekends and spring and summer breaks. And it’s only one level and it’s too hard. But the other people who have special needs get to be moved into a higher or lower group and they learn even more because ...
