Package Deal and Domestic Violence were winners of the 1994 Drama-Logue Awards.

Single and Proud and Other Plays is a collection of one-act plays by Frederick Stroppel. The collection contains Single And Proud, a short comedy about the dating scene, plus 2 more comedies and 2 dramas.

Single and Proud: Steve, a thirtyish New Yorker, shows up at a singles' seminar. The only other attendee is Sylvia, a 60 year old grandmother. Neurotic seminar leader Jackie Johansen outlines various bizarre programs and strategies, but Steve is only interested in getting his money back until a beautiful young woman enters. Aided by Jackie's gambits, the newcomer gets to know Steve in an original and intimate way. (Premiered in 1992 at Nate Horn Theatre in New York City; Cast: 3 women, 1 man)

Mamet Women: Sally is in a bind. She has to host a Tupperware party and her babysitter has cancelled. A good friend graciously offers to help out, but the price she demands for her services is more than Sally can bear to pay. The play is a comic power scene performed in female Mamet speak. (Premiered in 1992 at Theatre 6470 in Hollywood; Cast: 2 women)

Package Deal: In a chic L.A. restaurant, actress Starla Simmons meets her agent, Cody Jacobsen, for lunch. Starla plans to sever their relationship because Cody has done nothing for her career. Cody uses flatters, accuses and whines to change Starla's mind, then reveals that she is dropping Starla as a client. Starla is shocked, but she still has a literal ace in the hole. (Premiered in 1992 at Village Theatre in New York City; Cast: 2 women)

Domestic Violence: Michael, a desperately unhappy man, is at the brink of suicide. The reason: his wife Sandy is perfect. Too perfect. She caters to his every whim and he is sick of it. Sandy tries to prove that she is human and imperfect, but she can't. Michael finds that he has to leave her to preserve his own sanity, putting Sandy in a desperate situation of her own. (Premiered in 1992 at Theatre 6470 in Hollywood Cast: 1 woman, 1 man)

Morning Coffee: Katy and David have been living together for five years, but now it's over. They can't stand each other. They have to split up, but who gets the apartment? Neither wants to leave and neither will give in. Their anger and frustration pour out in a final summation of their rocky relationship. (Premiered in 1992 at American Theatre of Actors in New York City; Cast: 1 woman, 1 man)
