Act One Theatre: the actor’s nightmare

April 4, 2011

George Spelvin, accountant – at least he thinks he is – has found himself inexplicably onstage and expected to replace the lead actor: immediately.

He doesn’t know the lines. He doesn’t know the moves. He doesn’t really know what play it’s meant to be – and nor, apparently does anyone else! Surrounded by such luminaries as Sarah Siddons, Henry Irving and Dame Ellen Terry, George bungles his way through scenes from PRIVATE LIVES, …a hastily-improvised soliloquy from HAMLET, a play by Samuel Beckett and the climactic scene from A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS. Having convinced himself that this is all a horrible dream, George’s nightmare experience suddenly takes a turn for the real – just in time for him to face the final curtain…

THE ACTOR’s NIGHTMARE, written by Christopher Durang and directed by Josey O’Neal is a hilarious, surreal comedy playing in CF10 for one night only!
