In the overwhelming quiet of the woods, six runaways from city life embark on a silent retreat. As the strangers confront internal demons, both profound and absurd, their vows of silence collide with the achingly human need to connect. Filled with awkward humor, this unique, odd and compassionate play asks how we address life‘s biggest questions when words fail us.

One Actor Plays 40 parts in this devastatingly funny one act that follows a day in the life of
Sam Peliczowski, an out-of-work actor who mans the red-hot reservation line at Manhattan’s number-one restaurant. Coercion, threats, bribes, histrionics—a cast of desperate callers will stop at nothing in their zeal to land a prime reservation, or the right table. Amid the barrage, Sam’s got his own needs to contend with—his recently widowed dad wants him home for Christmas, and he’s up for a choice part at Lincoln Center. While juggling scheming socialites, name-dropping wannabes, fickle celebrities, and egomaniacal bosses, can he manage to look out for himself?
