Bare Theatre presents its third annual collection of contemporary short works. Dare to be dismayed!
Expect the unexpected…Past shows have included little girls lighting Barbie dolls on fire, spontaneous murders, the life of a clown in fast-forward, CSI: Verona, and even a rare opportunity for the audience to kill off a main character.
This year’s collection features a mix of plays by authors from Chapel Hill to Maine:
“Hot Greek Porn”
created by Lucius Robinson and Rajeev Rajendran
Drawing from material ranging from the pornographic films of Kostas Gousgouni to the dark agenda of the instigators of the European debt crisis, no one will be spared.
“Everything Seems So Plausible at 1 A.M.”
written by Ben Ferber and Donnie McEwan
directed by Jason Bailey
featuring Jeff Buckner, Patrick Campbell, Joanna Herath, and Chuck Keith
Larry the Lawyer is awakened in the middle of the night by Bob the Banker, Sam the Surgeon, and Emily the Ex-Wife – all of whom need immediate legal advice and protection from a killer, who happens to be one of them.
“Letter From the Editor”
written by Mora Harris
directed by Lucinda Gainey
featuring Matt Fields, Kacey Reynolds Schedler, and Matt Schedler
An affluent Christian married couple finds their faith in God and each other tested when the husband brings a homeless man into their house.
“For Whom The Southern Belle Tolls”
written by Christopher Durang
directed by Olivia Griego
featuring Jeff Buckner, G. Todd Buker, Joanna Herath, and P.J. Maske
In this parody of Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie, fading southern belle Amanda desperately tries to prepare her hyper-sensitive, hypochondriacal son Lawrence for “the feminine caller,” who turns out to be a hard-of-hearing dinner guest invited by Amanda’s ambiguously gay son, Tom.
