Synopsis:
When a down-on-his-luck New Yorker inherits a Parisian apartment from his estranged father, he uses the last of his savings to fly to France so he can collect on his win-fall.

Imagine his surprise when he meets the old lady and her daughter who have lived there for years and have no intention of moving.

The relationship that develops reveals truths from their past and perhaps a sliver of hope for their future.

8 Ten minute comedies by Bruce Kane

Welcome to the wonderful world of the ten-minute play. The FOAP team is excited to present eight of them in our fourth Festival of One Act Plays: On Your Mark…Get Set…Laugh! Playwright Bruce Kane introduces us to a world where the actors on stage become the audience, where a man, wife and his mistress, an emotional masochist, and an emotional sadist, a creatively blocked actress as well as a jealous car computer are all part of the show. We have an older couple of actors meeting themselves as young actors, an old west prospector, middle aged Batman and Superman and tons more. You will not want to miss this whirlwind of theatre.

 

Auditions:  Sept 29 & 30, 2024 @ Old Saint Paul’s Church

Book by Joe Masteroff

Based on the play by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood.

Music by John Kander

Lyrics by Fred Ebb

In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920’s draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the Cabaret. With the Emcee’s bawdy songs as wry commentary, Cabaret explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken with English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally’s boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish. Musical numbers include “Willkommen,” “Cabaret,” “Don’t Tell Mama” and “Two Ladies.”

A Rock Sails By by Sean Grennan

Astrophysicist Dr. Lynn Cummings has always believed in science over faith in the unknown. But now that her life is changing, the certainty that was once a source of comfort has become a source of emptiness. When an unidentified flying object is sighted heading toward Earth, she grants an interview to a journalist who misquotes her. With her credibility on the line, she invites him to witness the object as it comes closest to the Earth with her. Dr. Cummings hopes it will pass without incident, but there is no telling what she will discover beyond the stars.
