Come and enjoy a unique evening (or afternoon) of theatre when Wits’ End Theatre presents their first ever Short Play Festival. The show consists of five original plays, each 10-12 minutes long, in a variety of genres from comedy to tragedy to history. Thought-provoking, amusing and inspiring—there will be something for everyone.
Joe Chase actor, director and history buff, presents a short play on a favorite subject: Abraham Lincoln. This show is an excerpt from his full-length play about Lincoln, the trial lawyer, which Wits’ End hopes to stage in the near future. Joe is an accomplished playwright whose highly acclaimed play The Last Boy in Blue, was produced by Wits’ End in 2012
Blair Crouch’s short play, entitled Cliché is a charming and funny story of two strangers who find themselves locked in a bookstore after hours. Blair is a veteran of Wits’ End shows and is in an acting troupe based out of the Rochester Civic Theatre called The Otherwise Actors. Blair has been accepted into the 2016 High School Summer Conservatory at the American Music and Dramatic Arts College in New York City.
Devann Harris is also a veteran of Wits’ End productions, having performed in both Legally Blonde and Cinderella. Now Devann demonstrates her writing prowess as she presents a dialogue entitled: Love with a Price. Why does love have to be so messy? Young Kathryn confronts the emotional trials faced with a boy. A boy who is seemingly harmless...
Samantha Gibson, actor, writer, director, and Wits’ End mainstay, presents a show exploring life as a millennial. The quirky, insightful, poignant and funny show is presented through a series of four short monologues, with the help of fellow actor Chelsey O’Connor.
Joan Verdegan, a founding member of Wits’ End, presents a slice-of-life comedy: You look Exactly Like Somebody. It’s a “what if…” premise that examines the issues facing a celebrity couple when they are surrounded by common folks during a visit to the Emergency Room. Joan has always preferred creating theatre to performing, and was thrilled to be asked to participate in this inaugural short play festival.
