Written by graduates of the School of the Art Institute's MFA in Writing program, each of the fascinating one-acts on this triple bill is as slyly unconventional as it is entertaining. In her witty "Honey" (ably directed by Beau O'Reilly and delivered with understated charm by Julian Berke), Rebecca Beegle turns what might've been a standard-issue monologue about a broken relationship into a dryly funny walking tour of a broken marriage. Idris Goodwin's "The Story Farm" twists a satire of institutional writing until it yields a touching tale of thwarted love. And Chris Bower's rambling, hilarious "Notes to Molly" (gracefully directed, like the Goodwin piece, by Stefan Brun) follows alcoholic lovers (Kate Teichman and Matt Test) as they stumble through another aimless, drunken Sunday. --Jack Helbig
