Inside this book is a collection of scripts written by Erik Mortensen, owner and operator of The Mainstreet Players, including both his produced and yet-to-be produced works. Each play is introduced by Mortensen as he reflects on his inspiration, the writing process, and everything else leading up to opening night. The anthology offers a wide variety: one-act scripts to full-length productions, comedies of both a high and low nature, dramas dealing with contemporary social and world issues, and thrillers that will chill and excite. It's all inside, and it will all leave you saying, "That's Entertainment!"
