Cider Mill Stage - One Act/One Actor
Two one act plays! From Two talented actors! This is a unique opportunity to see the craft of an actor at work. One actor undertaking a full hour solo performance for each act! Act I: THOM PAIN by Mr. Eno is a Samuel Beckett for the John Stewart generation… THOM PAIN (Jake Wentlent) is at bottom a surreal meditation on the empty promises life makes, the way experience never lives up to the weird and awesome fact of being. But it is also, in its odd, bewitching beauty, an affirmation of life’s worth…a small masterpiece.” —NY Times. Act II: WRECKS by Neil LaBute-Can someone honestly love a person whom they have deceived for thirty years? This is the central question behind Wrecks, Neil LaBute’s foray into the dark side of human nature. Meet Edward Carr (Chris Nickerson): loving father, successful businessman, grieving widower. In this concise powerhouse of a play, LaBute limns the boundaries of love, exploring the limits of what society will accept versus what the heart will desire.
