Latest News May 17th 2006

ACT is pleased to announce its first production of the 2006 season.

 

The American Community Theater will be staging EMOTIONAL BAGGAGE, a series of short plays and one-acts written by contemporary American writers. The plays explore many themes, including: the unspoken truths behind the words we say to the people we meet; long-harboured jealousy; infidelity; dissatisfaction with the ordinariness of life; and the need for a sense of belonging. Some are satirical, others slapstick, some light-hearted others tense and gripping. Many of the characters are simply trying to move on with their lives, yet when the truth comes out, hilarity ensues. Click here for details.
