                             SAMPLER CHEF                           

           
          Cast: 5W & 8M + extras

Marcy, Emma and Allison are three friends who
feel they are losing their husband’s interest and
they don’t know what to do about it.  Then, Jillian
Fairchild moves into the neighborhood and
extends invitations to them to come to a Sampler
Chef party.  Hoping that going out for a few nights
will get their husbands to notice them again, the
women accept.  Little did they know that once
they got their first taste of a Sampler Chef party,
they would become addicted – and not to the food!  

“Slice, dice and add a little spice” quickly
becomes the motto in every home in the
neighborhood.  And, as the women’s appearances
blossom, the husbands don’t complain.  That is,
until they realize that now they seem to be losing
their wives to these parties.  Now, it’s time to find
out exactly what’s cooking in the Sampler Chef
kitchen – or who!

                       DISCERNING EYES                      

        
           Cast: 5W & 5W + extras

Aurora’s parents were murdered right in their
own home. And what’s worse is that she walked
in on the tail end of it. She was the police’s only
witness and all she could remember was being
knocked to the floor as the assailant fled the
scene. Without a description of the perpetrator
or any solid leads, the case quickly hits a dead
end, leaving Aurora with no other choice, but to
accept her uncle’s offer to come and stay with
him and his new wife.

Unfortunately, the transition doesn’t go as
smoothly as she had hoped. Her uncle is happy
to see her, but her new aunt is very cold, the
servants are suspicious of her and the dark,
watchful stranger who keeps visiting the house
keeps her nerves on edge. Then there’s the
accident. Now it seems that the person who
murdered her parents is after her too and she
doesn’t know why. Could it be because the
killer thinks she knows something? Because
she’s part of the family? Or is it because he
knows her secret?

            ANOTHER TIME ANOTHER PLACE

              
             Cast: 5W & 2M

Have you ever wished you had a different life?

Carole Lee did. Growing up in a family of
doctors was hard, especially since her family
expected her to follow the tradition. But Carole
Lee didn’t want to be a doctor. She wanted to be
a writer. That’s why she dropped out of her
medical classes – so she could pursue her
dream. Unfortunately, Carole Lee’s mother was
less than enthusiastic about her daughter’s new
career choice and she took drastic measures to
show her disapproval. Tired of trying to live up
to other people’s expectations and being taken
for granted, Carole Lee wishes for a life that’s
different. She just didn’t think that Peter, her
Guardian Angel, would make her wish come
true!
