Penn State York Drama Club to Perform Two One-act Plays

11/5/2010 —
Penn State York’s Drama Club takes to the stage for two one-act plays by Christopher Durang, “For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls” and “The Actor’s Nightmare” on Saturday, Nov. 6.  The performance is set for 7 p.m. at the campus’ Pullo Family Performing Arts Center (The Pullo Center).  Admission is free to Penn State York students and $5 to all others.

A second performance of these plays is set for Thursday, Nov. 18, at 7 p.m. at Dallastown Area High School.  Admission is free to Penn State York students and faculty, staff, and students of Dallastown Area High School.  Admission for all others is $5.

“For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls” is described as a light-hearted parody of Tennessee Williams’ “The Glass Menagerie” and is one of Durang’s most popular one-act plays.

Though knowledge of Williams’ classic play helps with enjoyment of the Durang parody, audiences unfamiliar with the Williams play can also enjoy this comedy of parent-child tensions.
 
 “The Actor’s Nightmare” is a play that details the plight of a stranger who is suddenly pushed on stage to replace an ailing actor.

Tickets are available at the door for either performance.
