About the Plays
This is A Play
By Daniel MacIvor
Directed by Leigh Anne Van Aaken
This is A Play follows three actors who, while performing, reveal their own thoughts and motivations as they struggle through crazy stage directions and an unoriginal musical score. A play, about a play, about a play.

with her inexperienced and non-appealing co-star, Joey.
Older Female Actor/Auntie – age 40s-50s. A wise, but slightly hardened maternal figure played by an
an experienced actress who was annoyed with the wig she had to wear.
Male Actor/Joey – Age 20s-30s. Mysterious yet bold stranger from the city who showed up out of the blue, played by an inexperienced actor who was overconfident in his abilities and frequently thinks of his inspiration, Robert DeNiro.

Directed by Brian Makcrow

This authoritarian captor, heard but not seen, uses techniques of brainwashing to destroy them.
