Let the games begin!
Two one-act parodies in one hilarious show!
Directed by Raul Chavez, “Game of Tiaras” (written by Don Zolidis) is a hilarious combination of Game of Thrones and Shakespearean tragedy. When the aging king of a Magical Kingdom (England) decides to split his empire between his three daughters, Cinderella, Belle, and the Snow Queen (who in no way resembles a copyrighted character), terrible tragedy ensues. Terrible, hilarious tragedy. Combining the gut-wrenching plot twists of Game of Thrones, and the soul-numbing despair of Shakespearean tragedy, this adaptation of King Lear will leave you dying with laughter as the body count mounts. When you play the “Game of Tiaras,” you win or you die.
Directed by Vanessa Keyser, “The Actor Games” (written by Wade Bradaford) is a dystopian/Hunger Games parody where everyone is starving…for attention! Society’s obsession with all things drama has become so distracting, the Capitol has outlawed all auditions and has divided the population into ten districts: Greek Tragedy, Shakespeare Drama, Commedia Dell’Arte, and others.
During the annual Actor Games, a tribute from each district competes to become a star. The losers must suffer the fate of the Fallback Wheel. This year, Meryl hopes to become the first ever winner from High School Drama. Unfortunately, the odds are never in her favor. The Actor Games is a fast-paced one-act play that provides lots of comedy opportunities for each cast member, as well as a humorous overview of modern and historic acting methods
