The Mystery Plays
by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa
Directed by Paula Bennett

The stories in the plays illuminate (or perhaps cast ever widening shadows) on the blindness of fate and the mystery of forgiveness.   Like the Medieval mystery plays from the early church (and comic books from the 1990s) the themes are death, the afterlife, faith, fate and religion. 

Because The Mystery Plays are two separate yet interweaving short stories, The Filmmakers Mystery and Ghost Children, I decided to write a unifying theme to connect them and wrote variations on that theme that were specific to each story (similar to the Twilight Zone, etc.).

The Love Talker
by Deborah Pryor
Directed by Paula Bennett


"Come with me...I'll set you a dinner of smooth arms, round legs and wet hair at the back of the neck.  I'll pour slow syrup on it all then throw in a match and make you dead and alive and nowhere...so says THE LOVE TALKER, a supernatural forest creature who has been haunting the women in the Blackburn family for generations.  The tale is many centuries old.  It originated in Ireland and was a popular story among settlers in Virginia and Kentucky.  Now it is a ballad sung in Appalachia...preferably on a dark summer evening.

Translated by Jean Anouilh
Directed by Debra Pralle, Highline Community College
