Avenue Of Dream is a powerful one-act play focusing on the squalid lives of a pregnant prostitute and her apathetic daughter. Set against the grim backdrop of a white ghetto in New York City, both women share a common dream despite their inherent differences. Olga and her mother dream of living in a beautiful house, furnished with curtained windows, shiny brown tables, colour television sets, pretty framed pictures, and a fireplace with a bear-skin rug.
Second Chance is a heartrending play which addresses the sensitive issue of maintaining self-worth in old age. A widow in her late sixties, Rita, decides to embark on a career in acting. The conflict and comedy set in when her children decide to visit her the same weekend she is to debut at the village theatre.
