a smokeyscout productions presentation
American Wisdom includes these amazing plays . . .
THANKS FOR THE PLANT, THANKS FOR THE CONE. This world premiere of a skewed morality tale about a neighbor who’s plant has just died, a neighbor who’s cone is missing, and a neighbor who just wants everyone to get along.
For The Dogs. Debt, dogs, and love demand a complicated balance in the search for a decent life in this humorous one-woman play.
Waiting For The Boss. A tense, comedic drama about the intimate revelations between day laborers who care nothing for each other.
Founded in 2008, SmokeyScout Productions (smokeyscout.com) creates work that brings the absurdity of contemporary life to the stage with brilliant acting, bold humor, inventive staging, and a respect for audience intelligence.
