Four PlayFour plays, two directors, one ensemble. A night of battle and intimacy.
Four Play is an evening of four one-acts: two by published writers: Harold Pinter's The Lover and Peter Toland's Pillow Talk; and two by unpublished
writers: Robyn Burland's After Loyal and Christina Cass' Bachelorette. The evening is blended together by an original jazz score that allows the
ensemble to transform into the disparate characters in each of the plays:
The Lover: A husband and wife play saucy role-playing game to keep the spark alive, but matters are complicated when one wants to end the
After Loyal: Teenage angst surrounds two high school girlfriends who have to sort out their sorted lives, and the possibility that one of them may have
accidentally hired her boyfriend to kill her step-father.
Bachelorette: A group of old NY buddies kidnap their newly engaged friend, a former wild child turned Susie Homemaker, from Dallas for a weekend
party riddled with ulterior motives.
Pillow Talk: Two male friends have to share, very uncomfortably, the same bed in a tiny house during an exhausting road trip.
Why pair up known and unknown playwrights?
"One of our goals as a company is to promote the work of unknown playwrights, " says Artistic Director Christina Cass, "and we thought it would be
interesting to see how, paired with the work of known playwrights, both tackle the issue of intimacy. I think we have found a great challenge for both
our ensemble and audience." Adds Executive Producer Blake Strasser, "we realize that both The Lover, and to a lesser extent, Pillow Talk have
gotten a bad rap for being actor 'scene night' pieces. Rarely are they given a real production. Although neither is the work of unknown playwrights,
thematically the concept works."
