Six dynamite plays. Six terrific actresses. That’s what the 13th annual Tapas New Short Play Festival is serving up this year at Guerneville’s Masonic Lodge September 13 through 28.
What happens when Lady Macbeth decides to remove her “damned spot” permanently, or a dangerous executive order falls into the hands of a lowly White House Intern? Or two quarreling sisters find themselves out of gas in the middle of the Mojave Desert? Come to Tapas and see.
The plays include:
Grilled, by H. L. Grant, directed by Darlene Kersnar,
Solar Fares by Stanley Rutherford, directed by Ed Brown
Heroes by Susan Jackson, directed by Scott Kersnar
Lady M. Visits the Dermatologist, by Margy Kahn, directed by Lois Pearlman
Stuff, by Darlene Kersnar, directed by Lauri Lippin
Executive Order, by H. L. Grant, directed by Darlene Kersnar
From our beginning in 2006 we have featured plays by northern California playwrights exclusively because we want to showcase homegrown talent. And this year we have an all-female cast of wonderful local actresses.
Performances are Friday and Saturday evenings, Sept.13, 14, 20, 21, 27 and 28, at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday afternoons Sept. 15 and 22 at 5 p.m.
