Town and Country Players present One Act Festival

Town & Country Players received 160 submissions from playwrights all over the country hoping to have their original one act play included in the season’s One Act Festival.

The festival, part of the theater’s Signature Series supporting new work, includes five one act plays: “Emma Abridged” by Kayla Hambek of Minnesota; “See Rock City” by Kelli Lynn Woodend of Florida; “Appomattox Remix” by Shawn Samuelson Henry of Michigan; “Standing Tall” by Nancy Frick of Philadelphia and “Wish My Ego Well” by John McDonnell of Bucks County.

Each of the One Acts will be directed by first-time directors who will then become eligible to direct a full-length show in future seasons. Vice President of Productions Rob Rosiello expressed pride in Town & Country’s Signature Series that connects new plays and new directors to audiences who get to experience new works.

The One Acts are playing at Town and Country Players, Route 263 in Buckingham June 28 to 30. Friday and Saturday night shows are at 8 p.m. and the Sunday matinee is at 2 p.m. There will be a talkback with the directors and some of the playwrights after the Saturday night performance.
