Name: An Afternoon of One Act Comedies
Date: February 19, 2017
Time: 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM MST
A Night of One-Act Comedies Production dates for the three short stage plays are February 17-19, 2017 in the theater at the Historic Homestake Opera House (HHOH) located at 313 West Main Street, Lead. The director of the 2017 one-act plays is Jessica Michak, of Deadwood, SD who is debuting her original play, Roomies. Roomies was written and developed by Michak, and is loosely based on her personal experiences living with a platonic friend while in graduate school. The play expands upon this narrative, where the "roomies" develop a close bond, similar to a sibling relationship, but are often mistaken for a couple. Their world is turned upside down by a visit from an eccentric cousin, who is harboring a strange secret. Canker Sores and Other Distractions was written by Tony-award-winning American playwright Christopher Durang and features a divorced couple trying to reconcile over dinner, but a canker sore and a talkative waitress ruin everything and they remember why they split up in the first place. In Funeral Parlor, also written by Durang, a widow is accosted at her husband's funeral by a very inappropriate guest. This event is produced in cooperation with Dramatists Play Service Inc., New York, NY. Wine, beer, soda and water is available for purchase. Free parking is located behind the building, on Main Street, and lot parking within four blocks or less from the theater.
