Laughing Stock

By Charles Morey

Directed by Dee Dee Bouzek, Lauren Schell and Kaley Sundby

In an ancient barn with mosquitoes “the size of sparrows,” a company of actors puts on rotating performances of the tragedy "Hamlet", the farce "Charley’s Aunt", and an original adaptation of Dracula called "Dracul: Prince of the Undead." As can be expected, chaos ensues.

A relatively new play, written and published by Charles Morey ,"Laughing Stock" is about a small New England summer-stock theatre that to perform three plays in repertory. The theater director, Gordon Page spends the summer with a strange mix of actors and crew members, and the play deals with the drama and mishaps that come from producing three shows at the same time.

A riotous work, "Laughing Stock" is a fabulous demonstration of the mishaps that happen behind the scenes in many theatre productions. This side of the artistic process is one that not many audience members even know exists. The comedy and near-professional acting in this play make a definite must see on all counts!
