More on the four original one-act plays...

Waiting for the Godots by Robin Schlaht - December 7th, 14th, 15th.
An absurd comedy taking on the conversations and introspective monologues of a couple as they attempt to “patiently” await a rather delayed arrival of their dinner date companions: the Godots. Inspired by Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, a couple discuss everyday things: buffet vs a la carte, easy-to-clean furniture, and whether they still love one another.

IN RE: RADDING v GLAZER by Steve Karp - December 8th, 14th, 15th.
A simple mistake over one fur coat being taken in place of another at a hair salon spirals into a full blown verbal war. All the while the innocent salon owner is caught between two aggrieved women as accusations fly. A comedic reminder that any conflict can escalate between entitled and unreasonable parties.

Old Friends by Anthony Arnold - December 7th, 8th, 14th
Winner of our 10th Biennial One-Act Contest.
A seedy crime drama based on actual historic events that took place in Vancouver in the 1950s -- specifically a journalist’s inquiry into a scandal involving the police commissioner and corrupt police officers as well as the attempted suicide of a police officer. As the plot unravels, the true underbelly of the city’s police and politics are laid bare.

Perogies for Breakfast by Murray Meln'chuk Mason - December 7th, 8th, 15th
Winner of our 9th Biennial One-Act Contest - Adapted for Radio/ Staged Reading.

Conceived as a radio drama, this play centres on a group of radical university students in Lethbridge Alberta during the FLQ crisis of the 1970s. The students’s act of defiance to the War Measures Act because restrictions on free speech catches them in the backlash to the events on the other side of the country. The play is a powerful reminder that the rights and freedom of speech are never guaranteed.

Note: This piece will be first performed as a staged "radio" reading as well as a radio broadcast to follow on CFRO 100.5 FM's - Arts Rational program in the coming weeks.

Perogies for Breakfast will be broadcast on the Arts Rational on Thursday January 30th, 2020 @ 9:30 PM
