This is the final exam for SBCC Theater Arts students. Over this week they've been performing one act plays, three sets of them playing twice each from Monday - Saturday. If you're counting, that means all that's left is tonight and Saturday.
I attended the Tuesday showing, which repeats tonight at 7 pm.
The first play was Overtones, by Alice Gertenberg, and directed by Katie Laris. It was the shortest of the three, and the funniest. In it, two women, haunted by their demons and passions, engage in social chitchat about their husbands.
The second play was Heights, by Amy Fox and direct by Brian Harwell. This is set on an apartment rooftop in New York where two strangers at critical moments n their relationships find themselves on the roof to decide their next move...and then one of the partners shows up.
Finally, there's Specter, by Don Nigro, directly by Sarah Solano. It was the longest of the plays, with just two actors sitting in chairs, testing their boundaries of acceptable behavior.
There's a different show on Saturday! The Ugly Duckling by A. A. Milne, and This is a Play by Daniel MacIvor.
These sets are FREEEEE and held at SBCC's Intermin Theater on the East Campus.
They start at 7 pm, although you should get there around 6:30 to ensure a seat. Normally there's a $2 parking charge, but for whatever reason, it's free.
