The Bards Town is loctated at 1801 Bardstown Road in the heart of Louisville, KY's Highlands neighborhood.

In Brian Walker's Neighborly Do's and Don'ts, a woman is more than a little upset about the constant disappearance of her Girl Scout Cookies.

In Nancy Gall-Clayton's Encounter at the Ink Spot, a guy walks into a bar. He's a writer. She's a bartender. Let the pursuit begin.

Over, by Alex Lee Morse, brings together two childhood friends who have completely lost touch.

Disappearances, or The Groom's Shoes, by Nadeem Zaman, finds a wedding party with no groom. Only his shoes remain. Is this cold feet, or something more?

In Patrick Wensink's The Internet President, two bitter rivals debate as they strive to be elected president of the Internet. The fate of the Internet hangs in the balance.

Tom Kerrigan's The Intruder sees a young husband out looking for a lost pet, his wife making it painfully clear that he will not return until the pet is found. This young husband, though, finds a way to remain comfortable in this search.

In Andrew Epstein's Wedding for Godot, Didi and Gogo have found themselves as invited guests to Godot's wedding...if he ever shows up.

And rounding out the festival is Doug Schutte's Love Religiously, where Adam and Eve seek marriage counseling, much to Adam's dismay.
