THE BETTER DOCTOR
A Silent Film On Stage. Health care reform has never been so hilarious as Velma sets out on a mission to help the poor underprivileged kids in her depression-era neighborhood.


"“The Better Doctor” is muckraking comedy theater at its finest and proof that a show where no one on stage speaks a single word can still have a lot to say."

Zach Freeman – NewCity

3 STARS! "a high-spirited riff on the Hippocratic oath: First, make the audience laugh."
– The Chicago Tribune

   

HELLO HUMAN FEMALE
An odd and whimsical tale about a 37 year old virgin, an evil scientist, his patchwork henchman, and the message that being full of love, kindness and understanding can make up for not having a brain.


"Matt Lyle has reinvented romantic comedy for the 21st century…

Lawson Taitte – Dallas Morning News

"All I know is, I laughed out loud. A lot.”
Arnold Wayne Jones – Dallas Voice

 
THE BOXER
A one-of-a-kind silent film onstage. An homage to Keaton and Chaplin with a modern sensibility. Charming, challenging, sweet and sophisticated, THE BOXER is the story of a "little tramp" Velma and her true love, the glass-jawed Boxer.

"a small classic...not to be missed"
- Glen Arberry -- People Newspapers

"The Boxer is brilliant"

- Elaine Liner -- Dallas Observer
 

SUNNY AND EDDIE SITTING IN A TREE
A neurotic love story for Generation Y. Boy and Girl meet (in their therapists office,) share their lives through endearing often embarrasing anecdotes, fall in like and then in love.


"...A smash...comic masterpiece...”

- Lawson Taitte -- Dallas Morning News

"...a hip romantic comedy...damn funny script..."
- Andrea Grimes -- Dallas Observer

 

TAB A, SLOT B:
A NEW AGE SEXIOLOGY

An episodic combination of theater, dance, puppetry and music. With a comedy style reminiscent of Monty Python and The Kids in the Hall, the script addresses all that is funny, frustrating and “F'd up” with relationships.

"In the two hours of Tab A, Slot B, some of the bits go zing and others go zoing, but it averages at least one good laugh every 90 seconds...Slide Tab A into Slot B and out comes the funny."
- Elaine Liner -- Dallas Observer
