Short Short Scripts

John Augustine 

John McDonnell

John Augustine, author of “PeopleSpeak” and”Augustine’s Confessions”


John McDonnell, author of the novel     “Rose of Skibbereen,” have gathered fellow local playwrights in the area to present “shorts” of their one-act plays.  Six different writers each night will have their material read by some of our Phillips’ Mill Players as well as local actors. Come and experience these works in progress on their very first step toward their journey from the page to the stage.

Poetry Shorts

May 4

Hayden Saunier

Think you’d rather have a root canal than listen to poetry or memoir? This evening will change your mind! Join Hayden Saunier, actor, award-winning author and Bucks County Poet Laureate, for an hour of poetic works and the spoken word that is funny, moving and delightfully human.  Hear award-winning poetry and memoir from Hayden and her guests, Bucks County Poet Laureate Lynn Levin, Moth contributor Alan Amtzis, writers John McDonnell, Joanne Sutera and Phillips Mill member Susan Sandor. Then get ready to ask yourself — What’s Your Story?


Phillips Mill Festival Fringe Follies

April 28 & May 6

Come one come all to the best show in town brought to you by the Phillips’ Mill Players.  They’ve prepared an explosive show of sophisticated, irreverent, somewhat prurient material in a series of short sketches, songs and dances.  Guaranteed to be absolutely pointless, the funny will bombard you from all sides.  Come and be entertained like never before.

Before the show begins, the Players will present a loving memorial tribute to fellow thespian George McAlevey consisting of a screen montage of clips of his most memorable works.
