    This unusual play with its shattering last scene captures the plot that has become an internationally known classic. Like the original story published in The New Yorker, the play starts as people are assembling for the lottery. What family will it be this time? Which member? Only gradually do we begin to suspect the nature of the lottery as the play builds swiftly to its crucial and moving climax. The tension and thrill of the play are built into its very structure.

  10. All I Really Need to Know I Learned by Being in a Bad Play

    All I Really Need to Know I Learned by Being in a Bad Play

    By Werner Trieschmann.

    Product Code: AC7000

    • Comedy | Farce
    • Middle School | High School | College and Adult | Family (all ages) | Senior Adults
    • 3m., 3w., 11 either gender, expandable.
    • 40 min.
    Based on several disastrous theatrical experiences, this play examines the process of putting on a show that is less than good. We go from the audition—where the director is more worried about roast beef than paying attention to the warm-up exercise, and the neurotic cast pretends to be bacon—to rehearsals—where a passive-aggressive stage manager gives everyone grief. This bad play within a play won't win any awards, but will keep audiences in stitches. Learn More
