One-Act Plays: Stoppard and Durang
Red Curtain presents two outstanding one-act plays, The Real Inspector Hound by Tom Stoppard and The Actor's Nightmare by Christopher Durang, in one exciting theatre event. The Real Inspector Hound follows two theatre critics who are watching a ludicrous setup of a country house murder mystery, in the style of a "whodunit." They become involved in the action, causing a series of events that parallel the play they are watching. This absurdist comedy examines the ideas of fate and free will. The Actor's Nightmare is a comic play that introduces us to George Spelvin, an accountant who is somehow mistaken for an actor's understudy and forced to perform in a play for which he doesn't know any of the lines. The abstract play was inspired by dreams actors often have in which they are about to go onstage and cannot remember their lines or rehearsal instructions.
