This sexy comedy is a case of "will they do it?'" A gay couple decides to hold a most unusual dinner party. They have invited the one person that hurt them the most in their life in order to murder them. The plan is simple: poisoned martinis will be served to the two guests, how complicated can it be? Chaos ensues when an uninvited guest shows up who won't drink alcohol, one has become a born a gain Christian, and is intending to redeem the Gay couple from their life of sin, and the other will only drink beer.

The live-in nurse and maid become overwhelmed with trying to keep the young girl calm and call her Psychiatrist for help. There is a blackout. When the lights emerge a young man is found naked on the floor face down in a bed of feathers in a catatonic state.

October 18 through October 31, 2006:
Theatre of Death Created and Conceived by Mark-Brian Sonna
Theatre of Death is a compendium of brief plays known as "Teatro Breve," a style of Spanish Theatre dating from the Middle Ages through the present day. Every year we select 6 or 7 different plays that will amuse, thrill, scare, or haunt you, that share one thing in common: in each play someone dies. MBS Productions was the first to introduce this rarely seen style of theatre to North Texas audiences, and over the last few years this highly succesful show has become a favorite way for audiences to celebrate Halloween and the Day of the Dead. This year promises more surprises as we present a new translation of a rarely seen Garcia Lorca short musical, as well as a new work by Alejandro de la Costa. More details about this show, and it's most recent production in 2005 can be found at www.TheatreofDeath.com
July 13 through August 5, 2006:
...a moment in the life of Willa Dee Arvis,an American Play By Mark-Brian Sonna
Life never changes gradually; it does so in fits and starts. There is always a moment, a realization, an incident in life in which everything changes and life is redefined. Willa and her cousin Emily, two ordinary women living in Dallas in 1942, await with anticipation the arrival of their mail: the newest issue of national Geographic has a pictorial of American troops in training in Bermuda, and their husbands are featured in the photographs. The arrival of the magazine and the viewing of the photos open up a Pandora's tinder box of memories and revelations about their relationships. The arrival of family friend Euel sets ablaze the pent up emotions that forever will alter the landscape of their lives. Touching, bitingly funny, and ultimately tragic, this play is inspired by the July, 1942 National Geographic pictorial, and a March 2005 obituary in the Dallas Morning News.
February 1 through February 14, 2007:
