Backstage


A light-hearted look at a small town theatre company

by Charles Robertson and Anne Marie Mortensen

A comedy about Canadian theatre Suitable for one act play festivals for highschools or community theatre. Most of the parts are written for women. An ensemble cast of small town actors and crew try to mount an obscure Canadian play about women getting back to the land. The artsy director is losing her grip. The actors are stabbing each other in the back, The producer; a car dealership owner knows nothing about theatre. A harried stage manager must keep it all together, while the ridiculous lines of the script are delivered with all the half-learned training the actors can muster.

The Play's The Thing!

Mitch doesn't get it
Selling cars was never like this
He is producing a show about a women's collective
The director is so vague she needs an interpreter
And the tyrannical stage manager must round-up the hilarious cast of theatrical misfits

Sample

Ever since I first met you, I was far from indifferent
When you came into the car lot with your lovable, yet pesky side-kick Karen
and told me you were soliciting
I nearly had a heart attack.
And when you said you were soliciting ads for your show
your performance
I didn't understand
but who cares?
I laid my eyes on you and I knew you were destined to be mine
