Settings Of Play - The stage of your theatre. The night of your performance.

Six players in an unidentified Shakespearean play decide to see who can steal the show. The Leading Lady and Leading Man start out trying to out sparkle one another. But jealousy runs rampant and each enlists the aid of bit players. There are two Clowns whose egos outrun their abilities, a Character Man who is supposed to have one scene, but decides that by being a Villain he can become the star. The play is full of outrageous monologues and soliloquies, dynamic confrontations, and a finale that touches the heart and the funnybone at once.
"Brilliant. Ornate richness of language. A beautiful, astonishingly well developed plot." - L.A. Times.
PLAY BY PLAY was first presented by La Mama E.T.C. in December 1972.
