THE ACTOR/THE ACTOR'S NIGHTMARE
November 4 - November 7, 2010
THE ACTOR’S NIGHTMARE and THE ACTOR, two one acts about the challenges and comedic aspects of being…an actor. Christopher Durang’s THE ACTOR’S NIGHTMARE is an account of every actor’s worst nightmare, waking up on an unknown stage in an unknown show, unable to recall his lines. And to make worse, the play keeps changing. THE ACTOR, written by Horton Foote, takes a different approach to the struggles of being an actor. How does a young, aspiring actor bloom in the conservative atmosphere of Texas? Maureen Shea directs these two one acts as a single evening of provocative theatre during the Emerson Stage season.
