Elderly Joe tries to use his new GPS to safely navigate himself about town with funny, crazy, and poignant results when the GPS voices come to life. This ten minute play is part of a trilogy of plays that use contemporary technology as their starting point and how sometimes IT doesn’t always work for us humans.
Bonnie Culver’s twenty plus plays have been produced nationwide, including Sniper, an Off-Off Broadway production at Center Stage, New York City. Her one-woman show A Ticket to the Circus, based upon the memoir of the same name by Norris Church Mailer, is scheduled for production in 2021 at the Edgemar Center for the Arts, California, starring Anne Archer directed by Michelle Danner. She has had three screenplays optioned, including Raining Rainbows by Solo One Productions, a film development company started by Marlee Matlin. Three of her screenplays were Sundance Film Development Program finalists. Dr. Culver is the co-founder and program director of Wilkes University’s Maslow Family Graduate Program in Creative Writing. GPS is one of three ten-minute plays involving contemporary technology soon to be published by Blue Moon Plays.

When baking cookies together causes a young couple to snap while in Covid lockdown, their true feelings are revealed.
Karen Fix Curry has recently returned to playwriting after a successful career doing theatrical costume design in the greater Los Angeles Area. She received her BA in Theatre from CSU Fullerton in 1999. Curry grew up as part of an Air Force family, and travelled widely. Her experiences color her plays with a sense of empathy for the trials and tribulations of the human condition. She has performed on stage, been a lead singer and composer in an Irish band, and taught K-12 music and theatre. Ms. Curry’s writing centers around the human condition. Whether set in rural Ireland, or medieval England, or the dingy urban ghetto, the struggles of family, culture, and circumstances are one every person can relate to. There are no bad guys, just good people at cross purposes, each trying to maintain their world, achieve their goal, and survive.
Upcoming 2020 productions include “The Wendy Chronicles” Starlight Productions national tour (postponed), “Covid Cookies” OJP Happy Hour Play Reading (viz Zoom) – Ophelia’s Jump Productions (Claremont, CA), “Crazy Quilts” AA University (San Francisco, CA), and The Hive Collaborative (Provo UT), Punching LaBute 2.0 (Chicago) – Semi-finalist/cancelled. Recent past productions include “Siblings”- staged reading, Orange Co. Playwrights Alliance at the Chance Theatre (Anaheim, CA), “Crazy Quilts” (Panglossian Productions Weekend of Women Pop-up Theatre, 2019) and “Being Wendy Wasserstein” (Rover Dramawerks 5th Annual 365 Women A Year Festival, 2019, and Itinerant Theatre Louisiana’s Women Leading Festival 2019).
Ms. Curry is a member of The Dramatists Guild of America, the New Play Exchange, Orange County Playwrights Alliance, Page to Stage Playwriting Group, and ASCAP. She is a mentor for The Official Playwrights of Facebook. She currently resides on Camano Island in Washington.

CT3K loves theatre. They have performed in and watched a ton of it. With a love of theatre comes a close and personal relationship with terrible theatre. Their usual shows ask the question, “what if someone said out loud the thoughts we say on the car ride home?” Complete with terrible dialogue, performances, directing, and calling for lines, our talented improvisers recreate live theatrical nightmares all while being decimated by a much too honest team of hecklers.
