From the writer of “Radio Ridiculous” comes this hilarious collection of three one act plays.

“Oedi”: The King of Thebes hand-picked committee has discovered who was responsible for the death of his predecessor. Unfortunately, they come bearing information the King does not want to hear.

“The News from St. Petersburg”: In this Chekhovian spoof, two married, land owning aristocrats receive disquieting news of revolution in distant St. Petersburg. They try to verify this with their servants, only to find out the revolution has already reached their home.

“The Whole Shebang”: This whimsical comedy asks the question; what if our entire reality was merely the result of a rather middling graduate student’s thesis project taking place in another dimension?

Together the three pieces create a hilarious full-length show which lasts about 90 minutes.

Life was very complicated and busy during the run of Into the Woods, and we really couldn't manage to see it, much to our disappointment. However, we had bought a ticket as a gift for a friend, who raved that it may have been the most professionally done community theatre she has seen here. We couldn't help wishing and hoping it might be repeated sometime. Anyway, that is why you had not heard our assessment of the play, and we wish it could be a rave from us and not just through us!
