Art Enter Cape Charles will be presenting a One Act Play Festival March 24-26. Plays include Thornton Wilder’s “The Happy Journey from Trenton to Camden”, Bruce Kane’s “The Real Problem”, Woody Allen’s “Riverside Drive”, and an original monologue by Wayne Creed, “Stealing Cars”.
The Happy Journey is directed by Chris Cartwright, Pastor of Shore Presbyterian Church. It is a microcosm of the mundane nature of life… and yet… that which is mundane is extremely important. “We are all given but one life to live and how we treat our precious few moments defines who we are and what kind of legacy we will leave.” said Chris.
Tony Korol-Evans directs the Real Problem, and it finally gives voice to some of William Shakespeare’s female characters who rarely get to speak their minds about their true feelings. Five of Shakespeare’s women take center stage and spill some mead about how they really feel about the men Shakespeare wrote for them.
Garney Johnson will be directing and acting in Riverside Drive. In this play, Allen explores the wild, infantile, murderous impulses of the unconscious. Waiting on a park bench by the Hudson River, a self-absorbed screenwriter, Jim Swain, fidgets expecting his mistress, with whom he is planning to break up.
Wayne Creed will be performing an original monologue Stealing Cars. The piece is adapted from the title story of his upcoming book. “I chose this work because of its character’s depth and nuance. Given the title, Is there still the possibility for love, faith, and redemption? Can a person escape their history? Can they truly find grace?”
The shows are at 7:30 on Friday the 24th and Saturday the 25th, with a 3:00 matinee on Sunday the 26th.
