Read on, all your questions about the March festival are answered here. Read, then buy some tickets, what are you waiting for, all your questions have been answered…
What is this one-act play festival?
It will be two one-act plays performed one after the other, each evening. Both are winners of the 2nd Act Players’ One-Act Script Competition, so they’re the best of the best.
Do I need to buy two tickets?
No, one $22 ticket lets you see both shows, an incredible bargain.
Will it be a long night?
No, an entertaining one, the first play will be about 20 minutes, the second a little short of an hour, so even with a short intermission between them, you can be done in two hours, tops. And there will be time to bid on some great silent auction items to help support the 2nd Act Players too!
What are these plays about?
Both deal with love and 2nd acts in people’s lives, but from very different perspectives. Falling into Macy looks at love between men and women from the viewpoints of two couples, one falling out of love, one never quite falling into it. Last Days of Wonder looks at the love of a mother for her daughters and them for her, even as her health is slipping quickly away.
Where is the 2nd Act Players’ theater?
In the great tradition of Chicago theaters, it’s in a church basement. Northminster Church at 2515 Central Park Ave., Evanston. Street parking is plentiful around the church, stay on the side streets to avoid paying meters on Central Street which is a block north of us. The theater is handicap accessible.
How can I get tickets?
When is it again?
March 11 through March 26 every Friday, Saturday night at 7:30 and Sunday afternoons at 3:30.
