New York City playwright Daniel Meltzer’s “Sunday in Suburbia,” the second-place winner, is more original, although its absurdism is derivative of both Christopher Durang and Eugene Ionesco. Charlie DeNatale plays Stu, a salesman preparing to head to work from the pleasant home he shares with wife Phyllis (Leslie Williams). Then odd things begin to happen. Stu can’t figure out why Michael (Scott Cunningham), Phyllis’ “handyman,” is now living with them and apparently performing, ah, services that Stu used to. Domestic harmony is ticklish, and a little creepy, as directed by Ian Downs.
