One-act plays take the stage in Bristol
BRISTOL — The Bristol Gateway Players and the Lawrence Memorial Library later this month will present “Nights of One-acts” featuring plays by Christopher Durang and David Ives.
Organizers in July said they were calling this series “Theater 1-2-3.” It was given that name because it encompasses rehearsing and performing one-act plays for two months, and doing three performances (Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday afternoon). It was designed to be a way for anyone to do some acting without committing to something huge like a musical, or Shakespeare.
“Nights of One-acts” will be performed on Friday, Sept. 20, and Saturday, Sept. 21, at 7 p.m.; and on Sunday, Sept. 22, at 2 p.m. Performances are at the Lawrence Memorial Library, 40 North St. Admission: Donations at the door, to benefit the library and the Gateway Players.
On the playbill are “Roll Over Beethoven,” “Variations on the Death of Trotsky,” “The Philadelphia” and “For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls.”
