Tryptonite by James James
In a world where we are connected to everyone through a device that fits in our pockets, it's amazing how we can be so disconnected from the people we love. Tryptonite is a play about the disconnect of a dysfunctional modern family. Drug-addled, alcoholic Christopher is living in LA, not having seen his family in years, ever since his problem infested parents kicked his brother Michael and him out of the house to fend for themselves. His brother, who left him on his own after several years of being threatened by his drug dealers, has gone back to make it right with his dying father and mentally unstable mother. In a desperate attempt to reconnect with him, his sister, Angela, invites him back for Thanksgiving - the very anniversary of the family's destruction. To show everyone how much he's changed for the better, he convinces his pseudo-girlfriend Sarah to pose as his new wife, and tries for what seems like his last chance to make them accept him again.
Lone Star by James McLure
In the comedy Lone Star, a Vietnam vet returns home to try and put his life back together. In a night of drinking and telling stories with his younger brother, he discovers that the world has moved on and nothing - even his prized 1959 Thunderbird - has remained the same.
