Out From Under With Mary depicts the interaction between two women at an inner city methadone clinic. There for a drug test, the suburban housewife Diane discovers that there’s more to homeless multisyllabic-speaking Mary than meets the ear . . . and eye. By presenting the possibility that two women from vastly different economic circumstances can find common ground, this play promotes the ideas of tolerance and peace through understanding. Perhaps we are more alike than different. Congratulations Chris!2nd Place, I Scream, You Scream by Mattie Rydalch, directed by Martin Flow
