So Nice Not to See You
by Fred Carmichael
Directed by Jan McKillip


From Samuel French:

Perfect for women's clubs, this comedy solves the perennial problem of what to do when uninvited guest show up at your vacation home. An author and her secretary are trying to get some work finished in their Bahamas retreat when two "friends of friends" descend on them. They put on an act that sends the visitors off to the nearest hotel. Hilarious situations and sparkling dialogue.

The Breaking of Bread
by William Watson
Directed by Lewis Mathews


From Baker's Plays:

Across the desolate clearing, two soldiers call cautiously, challengingly, back and forth. Mere boys and sole survivors of their respective companies, Rep and Yankee agree to a desperate bargain: A life for a loaf of bread! The foes will lay down their guns for the moment, sit down together, break the stale crust of bread and share it. Afterward, they will again take up their rifles and face each other across the clearing in a final showdown.
