One Act plays begin at Carson City’s BAC

Nevada Appeal staff report

Proscenium Players, Inc., the second oldest continuously-operating theater company in Nevada will present a series of humorous One Act plays today, Saturday and Sunday at the Brewery Arts Center’s Performance Hall. The themes of the acts are as varied as; When you realize your love life is being orchestrated by a terrible screenwriter, how do you stop the ride and get off?

How does a hapless bystander respond when called upon by a deranged actress to give the brush off to her recent ex?

What if your smart car is literally smarter than you and insanely jealous of your girlfriend?

And, when it’s just the girls, what do the put-upon ladies of Shakespeare — Ophelia, Juliet, Desdemona, Kate, Anne Boleyn and Hecate — gripe about?

Hilariously written by New York playwright Bruce Kane and local writer Fred Hampton, this series of One Acts will flip the script and sort of answer these questions. Performances are today and Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. in the Performance Hall at 511 West King Street in Carson City. Advance sale ticket prices are: $8 for Brewery Arts Center and Proscenium Players, Inc. members, $12 for seniors and students and $12 for general admission and $15 at the door. Tickets are available for purchase at Breweryarts.org or in the Artisan Store at 449 West King Street, Carson City 89703. For more info call the Brewery Arts Center office at 775-883-1976.
