Play On! by Rick Abbott
This is the hilarious story of a theater group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty authoress who keeps revising the script. Act I is a rehearsal of the dreadful show; Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal, and the final act is the actual performance in which anything that can go wrong does. The production contains minimal sexual content and violence but no nudity. The violence which will be choreographed by a violence choreographer. We will work with actors on costumes. Anything actors choose to provide that fit with the overall costume design concept are welcomed. The theater will supply any additional wardrobe. Actors are invited to assist with strike, but it is not required.
