  1. The Old Fart Plays OC1000

    The Old Fart Plays

    By Deborah Ann Percy and Arnold Johnston.

    Product Code: OC1000

    • Comedy | Drama


    • Livestream and Record & Stream Rights Available

    The Old Fart Plays is a collection of one-act plays that focus on characters of “a certain age” or beyond. Rather than a lugubrious concentration on theme, the plays deal—in one way or another—with the various challenges of aging but are mindful of plot, character and humor. If there is an overarching theme, it may be found in the words of E. E. Cummings: “love is the every only god.” Together, the pieces could make a fine evening’s showcase for a theatre company’s mature performers. Learn More

    March 2020. As California entered a “stay at home” order due to the coronavirus pandemic, UC Santa Barbara’s LAUNCH PAD commissioned 24 distinguished playwrights to pen monologues and short plays inspired by the prompt “Alone, Together” and written to be performed live on Zoom. These 39 extraordinary pieces reflect the moment of lockdown and capture our longing for connection. This is a collection born of a moment, but one that will live on for the ages. Learn More

    Everyman in the Circus of Life is a contemporary retelling of Everyman that combines the fun and skills of circus performance with the exploration of one of the great dramas of the medieval world. All the characters remain, but they have become figures in a circus: Death is the ringmaster; Worldly Possessions a juggler; Strength a weight lifter, for example. The script also includes the original Everyman to make it accessible to the modern reader, as well as rehearsal activities and games. Learn More
