Come to the Quadra Community Centre on Friday and Saturday and enter the “twilight zone.”
Theatre Quadra presents two of the most popular one-act comedies of all time. Take Five is a soap-opera farce that takes place during the 1960s. Sharon and Alex have been married for a little over nine months and are expecting their first baby yesterday. Sharon’s older sister, Gladys, has been going through one disappointing boyfriend after another and has finally found a keeper. Unfortunately, the boyfriend, Bernard, is more interested in his inventions than he is in proposing. The sisters concoct a plan to get Gladys married.
The Actor’s Nightmare is a delicious comedy about a tragic case of mistaken identity. George Spelvin, played by Scott Low, is an unfortunate accountant who finds himself on stage among several renowned actors and a bossy stage manager (played by Kate Fetherston) who thinks he is the understudy of their injured main star.
The only problem is George has no recollection of attending a single rehearsal, or if his name is even George.
Tickets are available at Hummingbird, Works of H’Art, The Music Plant and at the door.
