FEATURES / CONTAINS

Unit Set/Multiple Settings

An unprecedented theatre event: two plays take place simultaneously in the same theatre but in different auditoriums. Characters walk off one set and onto the other throughout and yet each portion is a complete theatre experience. In HOUSE, two upper-crust marriages are in hilarious upheaval, the awkward confusion of young love abounds, a devious politician has bizarre ulterior motives land a French film star imbibes one too many drinks. And what is going on in the GARDEN? More hilarity.

Note: These two plays MUST be performed simultaneously in by the same cast in adjacent auditoriums.

What a great shame that these two plays have to be performed at the same time! This narrows down immensely the large field of societies who would like to put this on. Having to do it this way makes it a very complex set up and I feel would deter many companies. The plays themselves have some very amusing scenes but they also only lend themselves to be performed  by adult groups. Sadly the amount of French spoken, could lose the interest of many audiences. A disappointing one from this popular playwright.
