2024 ASBX LIVE SELECTIONS
Jane Gets Sent, BY TEDDY DURGIN
The Wellerdads, by ALLAN MAULE
Jane Gets Sent by Teddy Durgin
Veterinarian Jane Williams has spent her whole life caring for animals and has never had any use for people. When she dies and goes to Heaven, though, she is suddenly confronted with spending all eternity with a LOT of people. Rather than reincarnate her for a fourth time, God decides to teach Jane the value of humanity by sending her someplace . . . else.
Teddy Durgin is the author of The Totally Gnarly, Way Bogus Murder of Muffy McGregor, a mystery novel set in 1986. His audio plays, The Next Street Over and After the Hereafter, were co-produced by the Cary Playwrights Forum and the Greensboro Playwrights Forum. He’s also the screenwriter of Paws, a short film that won 2nd place at the 2020 Zombiepalooza Film Festival.
The Wellerdads, by Allan Maule
To win back the respect of his five-year-old son, amateur filmmaker Doug starts his own YouTube channel. But with expenses mounting and ideas hard to come by, Doug must create a hit video or face a humiliating return to B2B marketing. When Doug teams up with fellow dad Matty during a backyard playdate, the two dads look to reignite their lost creativity during the long-haul voyage of parenthood.
Allan Maule is a Durham-based writer who is thrilled to hear The Wellerdads with Capital Arts Theater Guild and Artist Soapbox. His plays include The Weight of Everything We Know (Theatre Raleigh and CATG 2022 NC Playwright’s Lab), and EverScape (NYC Fringe 2015 and Sonorous Road Theater).
