A New York Encounter

by Fran Handman

Anything can happen in a New York minute, even in the middle of the day between two strangers on a park bench with very different views of the world. A New York Encounter keeps the audience enthralled as we find out whether these two get together or go their separate ways.

by Stephen Kennedy

Everyone has a favorite Beatle but not everyone can debate the matter like these two guys. Lennon vs McCartney is a hilarious verbal romp between best buds at a bar across the pond.
