The Other Place
Juliana Smithton is an intelligent and successful neurologist whose life is coming apart. Her husband filed for divorce, her daughter eloped with a much older man and her own health is uncertain. In this brilliantly crafted script, nothing is as it seems. Piece by piece, a mystery unfolds as fact blurs with fiction, past collides with present, and the elusive truth finally surfaces. From beginning to end, The Other Place is compelling, heartbreaking, terrifying, and haunting.

THE WOMAN – portrays Dr. Cindy Teller, a neurbiologist; Laurel, Juliana and Ian’s daughter; and a woman, late 20’s - early 30’s

Just as an elevator starts and stops on random floors, nine different stories are connected by a simple twist of fate. This nonlinear play travels backward and forward in time as each character experiences the highs and lows of relationships and chance encounters. Their universal quest for life, love and happiness results in both comedy and tragedy. As the play draws to its inevitable closing, two strangers must decide whether or not to risk taking a momentous leap of faith.

This romantic comedy proposes that a second chance at love is still possible, even for two people with a lot of miles on them. Lou is just about to close up his bar for the night when Stella, one of his favorite regulars, walks in. The two friends are sharing their usual comfortable conversation, when Stella suddenly reveals an unexpected surprise and even more startling suggestion. As the two deal with the difficult decisions they now face, they reflect on their pasts and look ahead to the future. In Stella & Lou, playwright Bruce Graham examines "the human condition" with a kind heart and a gentle sense of humor.
LOU – the owner of the bar, 50's-60's
STELLA – a nurse at a crossroads in her life, 40's-60’s
DONNIE – soon to be married, needs to lose a few pounds, 30’s
