Rivercity Players is presenting an Evening of One Acts.
First on the program is Day Trippers by Jean Mcconnell.
This comedy is about two women (played by Lynne Macara and Susan Wydenes) who are on a work outing to the coast.
During the play, they learn more about themselves and their co-workers than they expected. “This play is about the roles people play in their lives,” says Director Alistair Taylor, “and how that impacts relationships with friends, co-workers and others.”
Day Trippers will be Rivercity Players’ entry into the Vancouver Island One Act Play Festival in November.
Chocolate by Fred Stroppel is next.
This naughty comedy is performed by Alexandra Mason and Collin Massie, and tells the story of a curious murder investigation.
Director Susan Wydenes expects audiences will have a good laugh and be surprised at the outcome.
At the end of the evening, there will a scene from Rivercity Players’ upcoming production, Who’s on First?, which opens on Oct. 22.
The Evening of One Acts will be performed at the Rivercity Stage, 1080 Hemlock Street, on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 25 and 26.
The show starts at 7:30 p.m., and admission is by donation.
