2 Plays by Christopher Durang







through June 27, 2021

Onstage Atlanta is bringing two of Durang’s one-act opuses to indoor stage with a carefully monitored house. All appropriate Covid safeguards are in place, so if you have had your shots then fear not.

The Actor’s Nightmare is a show about an actor who finds himself shoved into roles he had no idea about. He comes off as one wh could screw up a one car funeral procession, and towards the end of his scenes he finally gets the idea and tries to carry off as The Bard might have wanted; except he winds up beheaded. The cast of players in this one and the second show is comprised of Maya Caldwell, Matt Hulsey, LeeAnna Lambert, Steven Medina, Kyra Pierce, Stuart Schleuse and Christa Sfameni all under the direction of DeWayne Morgan.

After intermission you meet up with Sister Mary Ignatius who Explains It All For You. This work won a Obie when it hit the boards 40 years ago. It may not be for some of the Bible Thumpers, nor for the kiddies; as the good Sister has some somewhat skewered views of life and Church in many ways. The one thing she is always adamant about is that she is always right and must be duly respected. Amen.

These shows play Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 3pm. More info and socially distant seating is available at OnStageAtlanta.com
