4+1 hilarious comedies & A R Gurney's The Dining Room

Source: The Drama Classes under Leigh McDonald

The Drama Classes under Leigh McDonald are presenting an evening of 4 ultra-hilarious one-act comedies, and A R Gurney's heart-warming play The Dining Room this weekend.

# 1 -- "Sure Thing". Here two people meet in a cafe and find their way through a conversational minefield as an offstage bell interrupts their false starts, gaffes, and faux pas. Watch the one-liners fly!

#2 -- "The Philadelphia  is a Twilight Zone -like state in which people cannot get anything they want, unless they ask for the opposite. Imagine being stuck in a restaurant in this zone! Surreal but very clever!
# 3 -- The Exchange
A coffee maker, an unhappy customer and an Oprah-enthralled store employee. When these three strangers don�t get along very well, you can be sure at least one of them will walk away broken and defeated. Who will it be?
#4 -- "Variations on the Death of Trotsky," might as well be called "The gardener did it" -- because he did. And even with an axe embedded in his skull, it takes some time for things to (ahem) sink in...and realise he'd dead.A little bit of Russian History of the Rise of Communism meets Groundhog Day!
Also staged in the same evening is The Dining Room - an anthology of short poignant stories by A. R. Gurney revolving around the dining table. Be moved, be touched and above all, be entertained.
