Lindsey’s offering for the 2013 Playwrites Playfest (Black Box-er Shorts) is “American Optic.” A delightful slightly romantic - laugh-out-loud funny tale that spins from things having gone awry at the ill-considered Mountain Cedar Festival, which an old codger named Gordon (Evan Frazier) believes has been ill-planned. He winds up hiding out from his daughter (Hannah Brogdon) in the diner, run by the cedar-fever-afflicted Lyle (Esteban Reyna).
