This comedy is about the lives and loves of the highly learned in the halls of higher education. With wicked wit and finely tuned dialogue this will appeal to your love of theatre.
Here’s a comedy about the lives and loves of the highly learned in the halls of higher education, or as one lecturer describes it, “an endless stream of intellectual toads, known as the academic faculty.” Charles is an accomplished writer beginning his post as Lakeside U. as Writer-In-Residence. He is writing a new novel. Myra is on the Faculty and is writing a book on Charles. Both are in their prime and both are priming. The situation is set, the plot develops and a relationship lurks. Also lurking is Bobbi, a delicious undergrad with aspirations to poetry and to Charles. The wit is wicked, the dialog is finely tuned comedy. Stratton’s play sparkles with a writer’s love of fooling around and he has a clever ending that will tickle your love of theatre.
“Stratton’s love of theatre and of people illuminates his work… Packed with crisply funny lines, Stratton has almost certainly conjured up another hit.”
