Mind Games
(Overtones / The Other Room / A Little Box of Oblivion)

by

Alice Gerstenberg / Ariadne Blayde / Stephen Bean

SYNOPSIS

Overtones:
Everyone has a public persona and a private one. At the beginning of the 20th century, with true love, social status, and even survival on the line, Harriet and Margaret must engage in a civil afternoon tea, while their private personas, Hetty and Maggie, go to war inside their heads!

The Other Room:
Austin is a brilliant teenage astronomer who happens to have autism. Lily is his popular classmate who happens to have an interest in astronomy. When a chance encounter after class leads to a growing connection between them, Austin's imagination, intelligence, and constant struggles to connect with the world are revealed. By turns funny and heart-breaking, The Other Room is a compelling and sensitive glimpse into a unique and misunderstood mind.

A Little Box of Oblivion:
It is a lovely spring day in an urban park. Cool is settling on a park bench to read the paper when a woman rushes on with a box. Before Cool can say no, the box has been left on the bench with instructions that the box cannot be moved, knocked, tilted or opened. After the woman rushes off, a series of motley characters then begin to arrive - each with a theory about the contents of the box. Thank goodness for the arrival of an amateur sleuth, who uses fact and logic to (seemingly) disprove all their theories. The problem is that she has her own theory!
