ABOUT THE SHOWS:
A NIGHT IN THE THEATER (Directed by Mike DiIorio) Margaret and Stanley Locker and their friends, Donna and Walter Pace, are at the theater for their weekly dose of culture. This week's ordeal is Hamlet. The play consists of their incessant and hilarious chatter about themselves, their children, a dead friend and even occasionally Shakespeare's play. Secrets emerge and friendships unravel amid the audiences laughter. You may recognize these rude playgoers as the obnoxious people who sometimes sit behind you.
THE ACTORS NIGHTMARE (Directed by Dan Spalluto) Having casually wandered on-stage, George is informed that one of the actors, Eddie, has been in a car accident and he must immediately replace him. No one is sure of which play theyre doing, but George (costumed as Hamlet) seems to find himself in the middle of a scene from Private Lives, surrounded by such luminaries as Sarah Siddons, Dame Ellen Terry and Henry Irving. As he fumbles through one missed cue after another, the others shift to Hamlet, then a play by Samuel Beckett, and then a climactic scene from what might well be A Man For All Seasons - by which time the disconcerted George has lost all sense of contact with his fellow performers. Yet, in the closing moments of the play, he rises to the occasion and finally says the right lines, whereupon make-believe suddenly gives way to reality as the executioner's axed (meant for Sir Thomas More) instead sends poor George to oblivion - denying him a well-earned curtain call.
