FEEDING THE MOONFISH By Barbara Wiechmann
On the edge of a saltwater lake in Florida, Martin, a young man, slips away each night to talk to the fish that feed at the end of a dock. Always believing himself to be completely alone in his secret ritual, he is surprised and angry to find one night that he has been spied on by a curious and obsessive teenage girl, Eden, who has hidden herself in his car to see where he goes. As Eden confronts Martin, dark secrets from the past are unearthed, and the unlikely pair of strangers come to understand they are bound together through similar experiences of loneliness and tragedy. Feeding the Moonfish draws on the influence of natural forces, the significance of memory and the power of human connection to weave a ghostly and surreal tale of loneliness, violence and a young man's fear of himself.

STAR EYES AND LIFEGUARD By Jim Farrell
Amy suffered a severe accident years ago, and as a result learns slowly and speaks with difficulty. She lives in a modest apartment with her mother Alma. At the top of the play Alma and Amy await the arrival of Jim, a special guest and once a frequent visitor to the house. Jim has set up a meeting with Alma and Amy to give them important personal news . . . news that will be difficult for everyone. Through a series of flashbacks, we realize that Jim, once a lifeguard at a popular public swimming pool, saved Amy's life ten years ago to the day - and we become aware of the true nature of his relationship with Amy.
