Rehearsals in Full Swing BDS ”Play on” 22nd-24th & 26th May
“Play On” is the story of the Dunbar Drama Society and its mounting of a local playwright’s original murder mystery. With no royalty fees to pay, the company thinks it got a great deal until the playwright continues to interrupt the rehearsal process with constant rewrites and changes.
Act I is a rehearsal of the dreadful show with bickering actors, bumbling crew and backstage romances in full swing. Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal, and Act III is opening night where anything that can go wrong does.
