Release Date April 20
DALLAS- The final spring performances for Theatre Brookhaven include four one-act plays from two of the 20th century's most important playwrights. Darise Error directs "Act Without Words" and "Rockaby" by Samuel Beckett. Terry McCracken directs Neil Simon's "Visitors from Chicago" and "The Man on the Floor."
Two dramas and two comedies balance this evening of one-act plays.
Beckett's "Act Without Words" is a moral tale that focuses on frustration and resignation as one man learns he can rely on no one but himself. "Rockaby" is a short, one-woman play that features the lone character rocking mechanically in a chair while listing to a poem - she speaks only a few words throughout the piece.
Simon's plays are comedies. In "The Man on the Floor," a married couple from New York loses their tickets to Wimbledon and will soon lose their suite to Kevin Costner. Slapstick and one-liners in "Visitors from Chicago" highlight the frayed nerves of two couples on the last leg of a three-week vacation together.
