DELECTABLE DURANG – An evening of Christopher Durang’s best short comic plays. Director: John Reese The 2018 season will close with the fall presentation of Delectable Durang, a collection of six hilarious and provocative one-act plays by Christopher Durang. The production, directed by John Reese, will be an ‘homage to the theatre‘. The six plays are The Actor’s Nightmare, Women in a Play Ground, Nina in the Morning, For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls, One Minute Play and Medea. Every theatrical element (costume and set changes, etc.) will be in full view of the audience throughout, as six actors function as a mini-repertory company. Skilled and spirited actors will perform a variety of multi-dimensional characters with serious personal issues who fearlessly leap into Durang’s world of comic mayhem with emotional abandon and a bountiful sense of play. Writing in 1994 after the opening of the playwright’s own collection of short plays, Durang Durang, critics responded, "With the help of Mr. Durang, the fine art of parody has returned to theater in a production you can sink teeth and mind into, while also laughing like an idiot. Parody of this comic verve is as much fun as the sort of marvelous party Noel Coward once sang about.." —NY Times. "If you need a break from serious drama, the place to go is Christopher Durang's silly, funny, over- the-top sketches." —TheaterWeek. We guarantee you’ll find STC’s production just the right combination to satisfy your funnybone’s appetite!
