An Evening Of One-Act Plays

Petunias dumbwaiter Welcome to MM Boor

The Chicago Actors Studio presents our 2017 Student One-Act Play Series. These shows have been directed by students in our Directing Theater program, and are performed by students of our professional acting classes.

The plays showing will be:

"The Dumbwaiter" by Harold Pinter - While two hitmen await the arrival of their victim, they receive mysterious messages from outside the room. It doesn't take long for paranoia to set in and turn them against eachother. Directed by Jonathan Frank.

"Welcome to M&M Electronics" by Robert Levy & Millin Chandna - A stressed-out businessman returns to the electronics store, where this disgruntled patron quickly discovers that the customer is not always right, or even welcome at M&M Electronics! Directed by Robert Levy.

"The Boor" by Anton Chekhov - When a bitter young widow is visited by a rude, boorish businessman, the battle of the sexes begins.  Directed by Aaron Potts.

"The Case of the Crushed Petunias" by Tennessee Williams - Miss Dorothy Simple wakes up to discover all her flowers have been trampled. When the perpetrator comes to confess, he endeavors to convince Dorothy that there's more to life than what one can buy and sell.  Directed by George Salomo.

We will show 3 plays per night, and several shows will feature multiple casts, so make sure you come back again to see every show and each cast member perform!
