Egalitarian Staff Report

November 18, 2014

The first act is THE POT BOILER by Alice Gerstenberg. The play takes a satirical look at egotistical actors, tyrannical directors and playwrights who think a dash constitutes witty dialogue. The action takes places during a rehearsal where the actors strive for the heights of ham, and the writer has no idea where it is all going. The second act is THE ACTOR’S NIGHTMARE a satire by Christopher Durang. Do you remember those dreams about a test we didn't study for, in a course we didn't know we were taking, ten years after graduation? Imagine if instead you are an accountant pushed onstage to perform Hamlet in the place of the greatest Shakespearean actor the American Stage has ever known! Welcome to George Spelvin's hilarious nightmare.
