The One-Word Macbeth
By Dwayne Yancey
Produced by special arrangements with Brookyn Publishers, LLC
Length: One Act
This fast-moving script delivers Shakespeare’s Macbeth in a very different way – with each character speaking lines that consist of only one word. This puts an emphasis on inflection and action, since the actors have only one word to convey the meaning of what otherwise would be an entire line. Trying to make Shakespeare accessible to a general audience? This has all the things you love about Macbeth – the witches, the sword fights, the drama – but is presented in a way that will entertain even the most die-hard skeptic of Shakespeare.
(i.e., Fine Arts Undergraduate Housing)

Produced by special arrangements with I.E. Clark Publications, Woodstock, Ill.
Length: One Act
FAUGH tells the story of a run-down old dormitory at Watkins College. Georgia Killian Watkins, granddaughter of the founder of the college, thinks the house is a blight on the campus which bears her family name, and she is determined to get rid of it. But Miss Charlotte, the housemother, and her covey of residents are just as determined to keep the comfortable old hovel as it is—even if they have to act like human beings for a change. The setting is the Fine Arts Undergraduate Housing (F.A.U.G.H.—pronounced "fawg"). The residents are a mismatched mélange of youths and former youths even dizzier than the crowd in McDonough's uproariously popular Roomers. Roomers and FAUGH are delightful on the same bill. The dynamic characters of FAUGH provide a romp through laugh land: Nikky has been a student for nine years and still without a senior ring, Simon is a music major composing an opera for sand crabs, Herbert believes his computer has fallen in love with him, and Minsey, who is probably a human being, but not always.
