In this whodunit, the misguided performers attempt to nail down devilish British accents, understand what a red herring is, and figure out how to die onstage without looking all gross and stuff. Meanwhile, the director and stage manager wouldn't really try to murder someone during the murder mystery. Would they?! Learn More

    With stopwatch in hand, the exceptionally organized and time-conscious stage manager meticulously micromanages every minute of the Medea audition process for the local theater. After dealing with some very colorful actors, the stage manager loses all patience, and we soon find out that one of the actors is not who he/she appears to be. This play is theatrical mayhem with a twist that will have you rolling in the aisles! Learn More

  7. 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
