Attitudes and Alternatives: A Collection of Contemporary One Act Playsby Paul Trupia
Synopses & Reviews
"Attitudes and Alternatives" is a collection contemporary one-act plays, written by Paul Trupia. Since 2005, these pieces have been performed Off-Off Broadway and/or at the New York theatre festivals. The common theme that binds the collection are the real life situations, thoughts, alternatives and in some instances, the choices that we make. The collection is at times humorous, at times serious and at times a fantasy. Attitudes and Alternatives, debates our inner thoughts with reality and considers what is going through our minds as we go through the day. It is what a woman may consider as she gets ready for a date: it is what a man may be thinking as he gets off work for the week-end: it is the wondering thoughts of participants at an office meeting or a middle aged couple walking in the park at the start of summer. In many respects, it is what we think about in the solitude of our daily commute and toss around with as we try to sleep.
