As far as Ed Shaw is concerned, he doesn't have a dysfunctional family. He doesn't have a family at all. That is, until his three grown children arrive at his oceanfront cabin to sort out their lives. That's the untidy knot playwright Peter Dee tries to untie in his 20-year-old drama "A Sea of White Horses" at the Vanguard Theatre in Fullerton. The situation is not time specific. It could have happened then. It could happen now.

"Six at Eight" spotlights the three winners of the West Coast Ten-Minute Play Contest, now in its fifth year at the Camino Real Playhouse in San Juan Capistrano. This batch of one-acts, picked from submissions from around the country, are neither wonderful nor woebegone. They're interesting but often betray the weakness of the form, which places exacting demands on any playwright. With a full-length drama or comedy, both writer and audience have room to move.
