Stonington Players present a series of short plays

It's a pretty impressive number: Stonington Players received 130 manuscripts for consideration for the theater group's fifth version of "Tables & Chairs."

Out of those, 11 were selected to be staged this weekend and next.

Each play for these "Tables & Chairs" performances must meet these simple rules: No more than five characters. No longer than 15 minutes. No set other than tables and chairs.

What audiences will see: "Chew Toy Research" by Richard Manley, directed by Theresa Broach; "Medals" by Mark Cornell from Chapel Hill, N.C., directed by Tai Scavetta; "The Ladies Club" by Jim Gordon from Norwalk, directed by Regan Morse; "The Art of the Pickup" by Debbie Wiess from Boston, Mass., directed by Bud Tucker; "One Three Two" by Michael Weems from Houston, Texas, directed by Ken Lyman; "Epiphany" by David MacGregor from Howell, Michigan, directed by Jackie Princevalle; "All The Answers" by Mark Cornell from Chapel Hill, N.C., directed by Christine Gunther;"Here To Serve You" by Barbara Lindsay from Shoreline, Wash., directed by Regan Morse; "How About Cannons?" by David Vazdauskas from Brunswick, Maine, directed by Vic Panciera; and "The Wager" by Betsy Maguire from West Simsbury, also directed by Vic Panciera.
