‘Auditions, Diners and Weddings’ consists of trio of one-act plays


Next up at the Alliance for the Arts is Auditions, Diners and Weddings, a trio of one-act comedies.

The first is The Role of Della by Nina Shengold . It depicts an eager young actress who has her heart set on playing the role of Della, but can she convince a cold, sarcastic director that she’s right for the part? The Role of Della presents a riveting and riotous look at the contemporary audition process, giving new meaning to the term “stealing a scene.”

After that comes Lives of the Great Waitresses by Nina Shengold. In this one-act comedy, four women of uncommon zen wisdom serve up some very pithy humor as they explain what it takes to be a great waitress.

The final play is The Wedding Story by Julianne Homokay. It’s a play told by a storyteller, bride, and groom. The storyteller is reading a story out of a book to an audience of children. Although he wants to tell them a happy love, the bride and groom keep correcting him on how the story really goes. Finally fed up and angry, he tells the children a horrified comical version of the bride and groom’s love story that does not have a happy ending.

There will be just six performances, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, February 11-13 and 18-20 at 7:30 p.m.
