QUADS May 2010 show (set of
four one-act plays)
show this year is Weds 12th May to Sat 15th May 2010 and will be a set of
four one-act plays, two each directed by Jan and Vicki. The plays are:
Last Bread Pudding by Nick Warburton (comedy)
A Respectable Funeral by Jimmie Chinn (comedy)
+ two other one-act plays.
The Last Bread Pudding
A comedy by Nick Warburton
The committee of an amateur drama group is meeting to discuss a new play. We
notice that, strangely, the presentation of the meeting to us is reflecting
the ideas put forward by the committee, making the play a demonstration as
well as a discussion of those ideas. A clever and entertaining comedy!
Amaz'n customer review of the play: "Having
performed this play and read the book tirelessly, I can confidently say it's
a winner! The hilarious irony of the reflective conversation between the
characters is a fantastic comic attraction. It should be appreciated that
beneath the comedic discussions of the committee there lurks a simple but
important message of reality, and not taking ourselves too seriously. Each
character has brilliant memorable qualities, and poor ignored Phylis'
disappointments, and Fleur's desperate rants of "destiny" are NOT to be
missed! This will entrance everybody watching
Rehearsal for the Last
Bread Pudding (cast member attached to spoon!)
A play by
Jimmie Chinn in which characters gradually emerge along with skeletons in
the cupboard. Three sisters gather after the funeral of their mother to
clear the house. Fond reminiscence turns to more surprising revelations when
their older brother unexpectedly appears.
Rehearsal for A
Two One-Act Plays
would be telling, you'll just have to find out on the night...two shorter
one-acts to accompany the above two one-acts, one comedy and a dramatic
scene from a larger play...
