"Baloon Shot"
by Joe Manchester

A delightful short comedy about an implausible convict whose tall
tales of bizarre prison escapes are getting on his cellmates' nerves
until the wildest story of all comes true.
 
"Chamber Music"
by  Arthur Kopit

 

The story is set in 1938 and concerns eight women in who believe they
are famous women from different historical periods who all are
interned in the same insane asylum.
The women are — or at least believe they are — author Gertrude Stein, martyr Joan of Arc [21], activist Susan B. Anthony, politician Queen Isabella I of Spain, Constanze Mozart
(wife of the famed composer), pilot Amelia Earhart,silent-film actress Pearl White and explorer Osa Johnson. They have come together to represent the women of the asylum in planning
for an attack they believe is soon to come from the men's ward. There is a
doctor who is an omnipresent figure in the asylum, checking in on the women.

In the play's context, it is suggested that the woman who claims she is
Amelia Earhart could be telling the truth instead of being insane,
given the time frame and that Earhart went missing...
