a new Comedy
A funny and poignant new comedy,
dramatizing the events backstage as a
colourful, complicated actress
makes her farewell performance,
while dealing with unexpected visitors..
The play is available in 2 versions -
the full version for a cast of 6 or 7
and a more economical version for a cast of only 2
Drama and comedy collide as people say their goodbyes, declare their love, roar with laughter, spit insults,
grab a final embrace, and renew old battles.
"The Actress" has already enjoyed successful productions
in Brazil, Germany, Canada and the UK
"A huge success...the applause just didn't want to end...
The play is full of witty dialogue that is also philosophically profound...
A smart, intelligent and very amusing play."
(Der Merkur at the German premiere)
"The audience were thrilled
and greatly moved by the show"
(Dez Minutos de Arte at the Rio de Janeiro premiere)
