ABAC One-Act Play Features Dramatic Comedy January 25-26

TIFTON— A one-act play with humorous elements titled “The Dumb Waiter” will be spotlighted on January 25-26 at 7 p.m. each night on the stage in Howard Auditorium at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.

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

Baldwin Players’ Director Brian Ray said the production by Harold Pinter is an early example of Pinter’s focus on the absurd nature of human experience. Using working class characters, he examines the claustrophobic world people live in as they wait for significant life events.

“In this play, Ben and Gus, contract killers, wait for their next assignment in the basement apartment of an old, closed restaurant,” Ray said. “Periodically they receive information and bizarre requests from an old dumb waiter. What ensues is a dramatic comedy of small talk and confusion with a surprise ending.”

The cast includes Dylan Bennett from Sylvester as Gus and Jannah Zinker from Sumner as Ben. Both students appeared in the Baldwin Players’ 2017 fall production of “Greater Tuna.”

The Baldwin Players will stage “I Do! I Do! I Do! I Do!” for their spring semester production on March 8-10 at 7 p.m. each night in the Conference Room at ABAC’s Georgia Museum of Agriculture. For more information on the one-act performance, interested persons can contact Ray at bray@abac.edu.
