The performances will be held Thursday, Nov. 1, through Sunday, Nov. 4, in ASU’s Maxwell Theatre. Shows will begin 7:30 p.m. nightly, Thursday through Saturday. Sunday’s performance will start at 3 p.m.
The one-act plays being presented include:

Amid Canyons and Mesas- A man wakes up one morning no longer sure what’s real and what isn’t. His wife helps him see the “truth.”
One Popcorn Ball, One Baby Snickers, One All-Day Sucker- Jeff and Marian prepare for trick-or-treaters, but find their lives changed forever when they encounter their first visitor.
96 Layers of Concrete, Furniture, and Air- Sam Kent thinks he can fly using nothing but his own power. But, Susannah Winkin hopes to dissuade him from making the attempt.
Henry’s Ear- Frankie has shot Henry’s ear off. Henry seeks retribution: an ear for an ear. It’s a comedy.
Our revels now are ended- A coda for the evening from The Tempest.
Directors for the production are Rick Davis and Melanie Kitchens O’Meara, professors in ASU’s Department of Communications and Professional Writing.
