These scripts are:
Alex Thomas's "Chicken & Frittata"
Iris Blackburn's "Untitled / MockTrial"
Malina Panovich's "Cream Dreams"

We will be reading and workshopping these four scripts and then have a live voting to pick the winning script. If you'd like to have vote and be apart of picking the script, come to this meeting.
