Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival

Winner! Samuel French Off Off Broadway Festival

Comedy ensues when a troop of actors refuse to perform their poorly written, low budget production, holding the audience captive. When one audience member, Daniel, attempts to leave, the actors force him onstage where he enters their world. Here he must contend with a lustful princess, a brutish guard, an obnoxious clown and an egotistical king. If he can defeat their characters, he will go free; but if he fails, he will be trapped onstage with them forever. Published in Off Off Broadway Festival Plays, 29th Series.

The King and the Condemned first premiered as part of the 29th Annual Samuel French Off Off Broadway Festival in June 2004, in New York City. It was produced by the Genesis Repertory Ensemble and directed by Betsy Karic.
