Join us for Scripts from Scratch, four plays in two days! Audiences have the unique opportunity to hear a fresh new script, never before produced and partake in its evolution! After the script is read by performers to the audience, a special Questions and Answers session with the playwright will be moderated. Audiences are invited to share their thoughts and feedback about the new work to the playwright.

Veteran ranch owner, Louis Desmond, halts all construction on his property after a juvenile T-Rex skeleton is discovered. To figure out the best course of action for dealing with the find, Desmond invites a paleontologist, and an auction curator to his ranch. Desmond will then decide whether to preserve the prehistoric specimen, or sell it to the highest bidder. This play explores the integrity of science versus capitalism, and the absurd lengths people will go to protect their own interests.
