An Evening of One Acts

Chris Bennion

Three celebrated writers and their trio of short plays stretch the imagination with magic, surprise, wonder, and a dose of science fiction fantasy to the summer. Famous for their successes on the big screen and the stage, we take a look at what Martin, Allen, and Shepard bring to their respective short stories.

PATTER FOR THE FLOATING LADY (1999) by Steve Martin
The bittersweet conclusion of a romance between a lovesick magician and his aloof assistant.

RIVERSIDE DRIVE (2003) by Woody Allen
A paranoid vagrant confronts a screenwriter he’s been stalking for weeks, convinced that his prey stole his idea.

THE UNSEEN HAND (1970) by Sam Shepard
Loners, outlaws, and aliens come together in a wild affirmation of free will and pioneering human spirit.
