    An amateur theatre group has three days left to rehearse the premier of a new play and nothing is going according to plan. The director has his hands full with a crazy cast of characters who seem less invested in the play than in their own lives. They are all preparing to present the play over Zoom for the first time and there are many challenges, including an actress who can’t remember her lines, a diva who has trouble sticking to the script even though she’s also the playwright, a mature actress who is constantly confused, a mature actor who can’t stay awake, and one actress who is stuck in a protest march and missing from the rehearsal. Running the production is a dynamic stage manager who is the only one on book, and a sarcastic director with a short fuse. This fast-paced comedy reveals some of the challenges of amateur theatre and trying to adapt to a new play form. Think of "Noises Off!" on Zoom! Run time: 40 minutes

    A gentleman is walking in the woods outside Paris one afternoon in the late 1800s. He hears a couple making love behind the trees. He summons a Gendarme who forces the couple to appear. The men are shocked to discover the couple is middle aged and not “young lovers.” The officer demands to know why they are there and the woman dramatically explains that they have remained virtuous throughout their marriage but recurring dreams have convinced her that she and her husband should make love in the woods to rekindle their passion. The officer decides not to arrest them and cautions them not to return. Throughout the play, a mime watches what transpires, reacting to--and imitating -- the other characters without them noticing him. This farce is a comic adaptation of a short story by Guy de Maupassant.
