THE GRAVEYARD SHIFT
Prose Interpretation (Male)
By Jane Nicolaas


It’s the middle of the night and the only things Doug Parke has to win over the girl of his dreams are a bottle of chocolate milk and his charm. Sadly, his charm is not nearly as chilled out as the milk. Smitten with the grocery store checkout clerk he sees every night after work, Doug discovers that she keeps her heart guarded. A tale of two underdogs searching for acceptance, The Graveyard Shift is a tender and introspective short story.

 

EVER AFTER YOU
Duo Interpretation (Male/Female)
By Katherine Raul

 

The first time Tyler Phelps met Alexandra Howard, she fifteen years old and cradling their baby. Technically, their “baby” was a bag of flour for a school assignment. Nevertheless, that sack of bleached gluten brought them together as the closest of friends. Fifteen years later, Alex and Tyler decide to start a family. When fate interrupts and destroys their plans, Alex is forced to reflect on friendship and resilience in the face of hatred. Ever After You is an ideal dramedy for two charismatic performers.

 

BRAINS: A GUIDEBOOK FOR THE NEWLY AND NEARLY UNDEAD
Prose Interpretation (Male or Female)
Stephanie Patterson Alderdice

 

BRAINS isn’t your run of the mill “medical memoir.” Told from the perspective of an “undead American,” this guidebook escorts its readers through the misperceptions, diagnosis, and the transitional process of turning from a normal human into one of the undead. A fictionalized memoir, zombies become the metaphorical lens for examining the frustrating and confusing process of coping with neurological disorders in this short story. It is an ideal piece for male or female performers in Prose or D.I.

 

(IN)FAMOUS
Poetry Interpretation (Male or Female)
Jonathon Harper

 

When Miley Cyrus’s bizarre antics at the MTV Video Music Awards grab more media attention than the conflicts in Syria, it becomes obvious that our celebrity obsession has grown to new heights. In this series of three poems, Jonathon Harper explores the burning desire to become famous (Famous), the insecurities that drive many to the limelight (Siren Song of Reality TV), and how our own hunger for celebrity meltdowns contributes to the vicious cycle (Hungry For Fame). The three poems provide a range of emotion and technique to show off the skills of seasoned Poetry competitors.

 

LA LLORONA
Duo Interpretation (Female/Female)
Julia Neva

 

La Llorona is a haunting and dramatic new piece for two powerful female performers. Based on the folklore of the “Wailing Woman,” La Llorona explores the taboo subjects of miscarriage, grief, and rage. After the sudden loss of her much wanted pregnancy, Miranda is left furious at the unfairness of it all. An unexpected revelation from her mother puts her pain into perspective and helps her begin the slow recovery to inner peace.
