A short play about a group of upper class Hispanic women living in the United States. The dynamics of their relationship gets tested when one of them, Joanna, comes to their children's soccer game with a new maid. Allegiances shift when Joanna receives the news of her husband's promotion, and their real feelings about each other are exposed.
“Manrat” is more than just a rat; he is an elusive and amorous spirit residing in the smelly underbelly of man’s city. Fluff N' Stuff and Cheddars are his wisecracking nest-mates who speculate about the motives of Manrat's recently developed depression. All the while, they search the south side sewer for dinner: that is until they run into Talia, licensed psychologist. The two rodent cronies agree to help her back to the world above… if she can first cure Manrat of his sorrowful affliction. Fluff N' Stuff and Cheddars, Manrat's supposed friends are counting on it, but Talia's life is also at play. Can Talia and Manrat find salvation together, or will all four be condemned to wade in the stink of their daily problems? And what about Cheddars and Fluff N' Stuff? Will they be able to scurry out of their own hang-ups and help a friend in his hour of need? Fear. Passion. Giant mutant rats. “Manrat” delivers all in a filthy, unforgiving comedy.

[New York City] The European, November 15, 1856-May 2, 1858, editor Hugh Forbes. Forbes, an English Garibaldian organized the emigres of 1848-49 in New York City with local radicals into a coalition of Universal Democratic Republicans. It became part of the International Association of the 1850s, and the foundation for the American sections of the International Workingmen's Association after the Civil War. Impressed by Forbes' war record coupled to his militant hostility to slavery, eastern abolitionists involved with John Brown recruited Forbes to be his military advisor. Convinced that the plan for Harpers Ferry was suicidal and unnecessary, Forbes left the operation. By 1860, he was back in Italy with Garibaldi, and, in his absence, became an easy figure to blame for the project's defeat.
