Tempting Fate
July 28 - August 13, 2005
Chicago Actors' Studio

"[Brown Couch's ten-minute play festival is] an important one that gives a much-needed public platform for playwright's voices."

- Fabrizio O. Almedida, New City Times

Our third festival focused on the theme of "superstition." It was also the first year to feature a curtain scene, Scream, featuring Allison Moody and the creepy voice of Mark Pracht.
