Rhyme & Punishment:
A musical comedy in one act  [45’]
(Book and Lyrics by Anton Dudley)  

Three college Juniors fail a poetry class just days before their Spring Semester Abroad. As they scatter across the globe in this one-act musical comedy, the jilted Juniors go on a journey of self-discovery with only a stack of poems as their guide. Through songs modeled after international poetic forms (Haiku, Sonnet, Sapphic verse, etc.), the friends navigate near-death experiences, romantic trysts, foreign sports, and foreign brews, only to find poetic pleasure in what first seems like punishment. 

2017 “As I Am By You” performed in Aria Entertainment’s From Page to Stage Song Writers Showcase, The Other Palace Studio, London, U.K.  
2017 Hatchery Series, Zeider’s American Dream Theater, Virginia Beach, VA  
2016 Next Edition Series, Playwrights Realm, NY, featuring A.J. Shively and Maria-Christina Oliveras, directed by Marlo Hunter.
