Gumball Badges

gumball Linda Wolfe was never good at dealing with people. It wasn’t that she was difficult to work with; she just had a limited amount of patience at her disposal, and that could disappear in a heartbeat. To Griffin Cadmus, Linda’s old police academy rival, her patience never existed, and was her only shortcoming. When Linda, a small town homicide detective, was forced to work with Cadmus, FBI narcissist extraordinaire, she thought this would be the toughest case of her life. She wasn’t wrong. Linda was prepared for a typical murder case. She was not prepared to be hunted, and neither she nor Cadmus were prepared to be placed in the crosshairs. The Surgeon Strangler was coming for them. And there was only so far they could run. Katherine Orozco is a South Texas playwright, poet, and fiction author.

 Twas the FLOP Before Christmas


Christmas is that time of the year when everything is joyous and happy. Like many holiday stories, “Twas the FLOP Before Xmas” underscores the idea that if things could go wrong during the holiday season, they will. In the case of this multiple scene play, Marco has just been left in charge of the annual Christmas variety show and must fix this metaphorical sinking ship. Actors are getting sick, the local cheerleaders can’t cheer, the Christmas clown is more frightening than funny, and the reindeer have gone missing. Chaos ensues as Marco and the stage manager, Rebecca, do their best to keep the reins together on this Christmas train wreck. Is there time to get their act together? This will be a fun performance for both actors and audience! Michael Verderber is a south Texas playwright who specializes in adapting non-theatrical works for the stage.
