The Plays


Featured in the Garden Reading series is the work of Brian C. Petti.

Bovine Existential takes place in the holding pen for a slaughterhouse where two stable-mates plot a dramatic escape. Will they make it?!

Brian is a participating playwright in the Brownstone Steps Play Development program. Based in Hudson Valley, NY, Brian has been published and produced internationally. We are excited to have his work presented in the Garden.

WET-VAC CHRONICLES by Alicia Foxworth

Alicia gives you a new comedic monologue of water and woe in Wet-Vac Chronicles. Get your boots on. Something is in the water!

THE RHYTHM OF BLU by Alicia Foxworth

From the heart of our chief storyteller, Alicia Foxworth is a time jump to the era of Doo Wop. What makes an aspiring singer a success? Is it the promise of fame or the love one sings about? We are on stage with The Rhythm of Blu.

Dedicated to the memory of Alicia’s Uncle, Leander Brooks.
