Don’t miss May River Theatre’s One-Act Performances.
Our second annual Series of One Acts is underway in rehearsals with performances on August 4 – 6 for The Coyotes and August 18 – 20 for The Universal Language /Relative Strangers double feature.
A group of long-time friends experience the aftermath of murdering a man together. Through an expressionistic lens, we get to see each character recount what they’ve just done. Each character has a monologue that gives you a deeper look into how their mind works, but the play also maps out the complicated relationships they have with each other. The show has dark themes of revenge and violence, but it also shows the complexity of human nature and the loyalty and love that comes with long-term friendships. (50 Minutes)
The Universal Language
Brings together Dawn, a young woman with a stutter, and Don, the creator and teacher of Unamunda, a wild comic language. Their lesson sends them off into a dazzling display of hysterical verbal pyrotechnics – and, of course, true love. (30 Minutes)
A young airline passenger decides that the woman seated next to her might be the mother she never had. She finds an ally in a wacky stewardess who, unlike the reluctant mother figure, believes these two passengers are a match made in heaven. (30 Minutes)
