An Evening of Possibilities - Archived

Where Anything Can Happen

Buckle your seat belts and get ready to join us for an evening of the unexpected.  For your consideration we bring you a collection of short works by California playwright Mark Harvey Levine.  His stories reveal a light-touch, a wicked sense of humor and a knack for using paranormal events to cast a new light on normal ones. These seemingly simple, short pieces are hilarious on the surface, but full of subtle nuances both touching and convicting.  This show will mark the 1,000th production of Mr. Levine’s works.

“Levine’s plays are smart, humane, funny, and indicate a terrific sense of theatrical craft.”

“Levine has an unmerciful sense of humor, fueled through a fertile imagination.”     Entertainment Today
