Four Play & Pastiche

Date/s: 22nd, 23rd November 2013

Synopsis

FOUR PLAY by Colin Smith

The setting is a perfectly ordinary evening with hosts David and Caroline and their guests Helen and Edward enjoying a dinner party.
A perfectly ordinary evening in suburbia until we realise that David is having an affair with Helen and Caroline knows all about it. Once the cat is out of the bag there is no way to stop the evening developing into a battle ground of recriminations, explanations and cruel home truths. Cleverly written by Colin Smith, the play is a study of modern adultery with a dash of dark humour.

A French Farce Feast

Date/s: 21st, 22nd January 2011

Synopsis

The Indifferent Commissioner by Georges Courteline
In this play we get a glimpse into the nightmare world of bureaucracy that has fossilized and is of no meaningful service to the public. As individuals pour into the police station they are met and dealt with indifference.

Stop Parading Around Stark Naked by Georges Feydeau
In this play we are exposed to the world of the rising politician and how that awareness transforms his relationship with his wife into one of nit-picking and self-righteousness. The feisty wife, however, is no pushover and she gives as good as she gets with a charm and insouciance that gets us to cheer her on.

Synopsis

Golf War Widows by Damien Trasler
The playwright captures hilarious and poignant moments share by three wives killing time when their husbands are busy with corporate golf tournament.

Overtones by Alice Gerstenberg
Harriet and Margaret present a cultured and refined image to the outside world, while Hetty and Maggie represent the wild, primitive desires of these same women. The play embodies a disparate part of the characters’ personality and is a unique convention celebrating womanhood.

A Matter of Husbands by Ferenc Molnar
When an earnest young wife suspects that her husband is having an affair with a famous and glamorous actress, she decides to take matters into her own hands and confronts her with the evidence.
