One Act Plays at ABAC February 16-17

January 31, 2017

Two one-act plays with humorous elements will be spotlighted on Feb. 16-17 at 7 p.m. on the stage in the Chapel of All Faiths at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.

Baldwin Players’ Director Brian Ray said this is the first year of offering student-focused one-act plays to supplement the ABAC theatre program and the Baldwin Players’ regular season of full length productions.

Admission is $5 per person for the general public to help establish an ABAC theatre program scholarship.  The performances are free to all ABAC students, faculty and staff.

The first play, “American Coffee” by Victor Bumbalo, is a dark comedy that focuses on a husband and wife arguing over their morning coffee about what they can do to keep from being embarrassed socially by their son and his boyfriend, who are coming home for the wedding of their daughter.

“How To Kill a Mockingbird” by Bradley Walton is the second play, and it revolves around a group of students working on a project about Harper Lee’s ‘To Kill a Mockingbird,” though none of them have ever read the literary masterpiece, let alone own a copy of the book.  As they struggle to complete the project, the students end up coming up with a conspiracy theory about the feathered creatures that pose a threat to us all.

The Baldwin Players will stage “The Little Foxes” for their spring semester production on March 9-11 at 7 p.m. each night in the Peanut Museum of the Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village at ABAC. For more information on the one-act performances, interested persons can contact Ray, an ABAC professor of English and Theatre, at bray@abac.edu.
