Synopses

"Subliminal"
After high school graduation, a new batch of hopeful performers audition for New York East College of the Arts (NYEArts). Among the auditioning students are a close trio of African American girls, trying to bring some diversity to the predominately white college. The Artistic Director is also in favor of some diversity; however, some of the other professors and students are having difficulty accepting the change. After all three girls are accepted to the college they face perplexing difficulties as their race and its relevancy is brought into the light.

"'Tis the Season"
After suffering from a bad breakup Danika and Danny decide to go their separate ways. As Danika moves on she meets Jamie who introduces her to what a normal relationship should feel like. Everything seems to be going well until the option of where to go for Thanksgiving dinner is on the table. And soon Danika has to learn to face her past while trying to continue making her own future.

"It's All About Lorrie"
Lorrie, an offstage character, is responsible for the break-up of a couple, Mark and Heather, in a play called "The Understudy." Although Lorrie never appears on stage in scene one of the "The Understudy," the real-life Lorrie shows up unannounced in scene two at a rehearsal studio and demands that Jessica, the writer/director of the play, create her part in a subsequent production. When Kate, who plays Heather, and Jeremy, who plays Mark, show up for a rehearsal of The Understudy, they find Jessica befuddled by Lorrie's appearance. Jessica accuses Jeremy of having an affair with Lorrie, which Jeremy vehemently denies since it was Mark, the character, not he, the real-life person, who was involved with Lorrie. When Lorrie returns to the rehearsal studio, she sees Mark/Jeremy and attempts to resume her relationship with him. Heather/Kate is angry because she thought that she and Jeremy were forming a relationship. How "It's All About Lorrie" proceeds and ends is unraveled by Jessica, the director, and the characters who try to determine what is real and what is not.
