About This Show

Flat Earth Theatre Presents: A Night of One Acts by Christopher Durang In Sister Mary Ignatius Explains it All, Sister Mary Ignatius gives a lesson on religion and hilarity, as well as answering a few questions about herself, with the assistance of her star pupil, Thomas.  When her former students come back under the pretense of performing her favorite nativity pagent, she is delighted.  That is, until she finds out the real reason why they’ve come back.In The Actor’s Nightmare, George Spelvin must go on for an injured actor – for a play he’s never rehearsed.  Convinced this is a dream, he goes along with it, humorously fumbling his way through Noel Coward’s “Private Lives”, Shakespeare’s “Hamlet”, a fictitious play by Beckett, and finally finds himself as A Man for All Seasons.  As his head is put on the chopping block, George finds that it may not be a dream after all.
