Exciting new one-act plays at Ohlone
Submitted By Ohlone College
Student actors and directors present a series of edgy, energetic one-act plays performed in repertory exploring the ins and outs, sideways looks and backwards glances at modern relationships through comedy, drama, emotion and mayhem. May 8 through the 15 five contemporary one-act plays, selected and presented by the Student Repertory Company, will be presented in two performance bills over the course of six nights at the Smith Center at Ohlone College.
ÒThese new plays, never performed at a college, are produced by incredibly passionate and skilled directors and equally talented actors,Ó says Ryan Weible, faculty advisor for Student Rep, ÒAll five of the plays are exciting, entertaining and fully produced. You donÕt want to miss this opportunity to see intense young talent performing the latest in modern theatre.Ó
Performance Bill One includes Impromptu, a comedy written by Tad Mosel, which brings a fresh approach to the question of finding the balance between truth vs. illusion in life; Heights by Amy Fox focuses on three young New Yorkers facing relationship conflicts on an apartment rooftop at 2 a.m.; and, The Great War by Neil Labute, a comedic look at a divorcing couple trying to reach an end to their hostility.
Performance Bill Two includes Thread Count by Lisa Soland, a comedy where fast-paced, witty lines mix modernism with old-fashioned romance; and a two-character dark comedy set in another New York apartment, where Ivan Foley returning home from a long day of job-hunting, finds a different kind of ÒjobÓ waiting for him in his living room in Come Again, Another Day, by Cary Pepper.
