All written by Slavomir Mrozek
Three of the most popular plays by Slavomir Mrozek -"Enchanted Night", "Out at Sea", & "Serenade" are telling three stories of alienation, abuse of power, conformity, and the limitations of human freedom under a totalitarian system.
ENCHANTED NIGHT- Two business men spend the night together in a hotel while on a conference. They are visited by a beautiful young woman but don't know which of them she has come for . . . or is she real at all and maybe this is a dream and what are you doing in my dream? A night they'll both try to forget. This comically provocative one-act is underscored by the band playing downstairs, the passing train, and a squeaky bed.
Ruis Woertendyke (Director) is a LaMama baby of the seventies and eighties. Currently Chair of the Performing Arts Department at Pace University. Featuring: Grant Kretchik *, Jon Gabrielson, Lilah Shreeve
OUT AT SEA - a story of the selfish, savvy and eager. Stranded at sea three characters take a surreal journey when they are forced to decide how to survive. Campaigning, elections, and scandal all give way to sacrifices for the greater good. The human need for a sense of purpose and legacy can create quiet an appetite.
Directed by Grant Kretchik * (Faculty) Featuring: Kristen Vaphides, Julie Robles, Dorothy James Loechel, Matt Alford, Ruis Woertendyke
SERENADE tells the story of Fox, a natural born killer with a conscience. He attempts to seduce the Hens of a local henhouse, under the beak of an overprotective Rooster.
