NORMAL SCHNORMAL by Ian Patrick Williams (Studio City, CA)
Directed by Andrea Elu
An elderly hypochondriac visits her doctor expecting to hear the worst. Although he constantly reassures her everything is normal, she refuses to believe it. Eventually she schools the overly busy doctor about the necessity of spending more time with patients, not to mention family and friends.

WIZARD OF PROZ by Gary Blackwood (Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia)

Shipwrecked on a distant island, Dorothea encounters two characters from The Tempest, Ariel and Caliban (who are oddly reminiscent of the Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion).
