The 2nd Act Players is at it again, presenting two new works for the stage at its One-Act Play Festival opening March 11 and running weekends through March 26. Come see two plays for the price of one ticket each evening of the festival!
The plays being presented are Falling Into Macy by Richard Lyons Conlon, and The Last Days of Wonder by Tess Light. Both are the winners of the 2nd Act Players’ 2016 One-act script competition, judged the best of more than 60 entries. Each deals with significant 2nd acts in their characters’ lives and both will showcase dynamic new talent on stage, in keeping with the mission of the Players. Both also are written by playwrights with Chicago connections.
The plays look at human relationships and the drama, comedy and tragedy that they can produce. “These are stories audiences will readily relate to,” explains 2nd Act co-founder John N. Frank. “Falling Into Macy looks at the eternal struggles of the male-female relationship while The Last Days of Wonder looks at the vexing challenges of the mother-daughter relationship.”
The Last Days of Wonder also will represent the first all-female cast play to be done by the 2nd Act Players.
