LAUGHING STOCK – August 7 – 18
A backstage farce by Charles Morey
A hilarious comedy and genuinely affectionate look into the world of the theatre. When The Playhouse, a rustic New England summer theatre (any resemblance to the Peterborough Players is purely coincidental, of course), schedules a repertory season of Dracula, Hamlet and Charley's Aunt, comic mayhem ensues. We follow the well-intentioned but over-matched company from outrageous auditions, to ego-driven rehearsals, through opening nights gone disastrously awry, to the elation of a great play well told and the comic and nostalgic season close. Chuck Morey, former Artistic Director of the Peterborough Players, (who directed last season’s The 39 Steps) returns to direct this big hit from the 2004 season.
