Rome Community Theater to present six one-act plays

Published Oct 15, 2018 at 4:00pm

“The Eleven O’Clock” by Josh Lawson is among six one-act plays to be presented by Rome Community Theater, Oct. 19-21, according to an announcement by theater officials.

Transcribed from the 2018 Oscar-nominated “Best Live-Action Short Film,” it depicts what happens when a psychiatrist encounters a new patient who thinks he’s a psychiatrist, the RCT announcement said.

“Clever, funny, and fast-paced, it echoes Abbott and Costello’s ‘Who’s on first?’ sketch and the Cage/Travolta film ‘Face/off’, with obvious contemporary political parallels to those seeking control and recognition,” organizers said.

The cast includes Val Abel, Carol Eggleston Furno, Jo Ann Geller, John Frank, Bill Moore, and Ted Lenio, directing his first play.

The playbill also includes the following one acts:

• “From Hearse to Eternity,”;

• “Andre’s Mother”;

• “Haiku”;

• “The Red Coat,” and 

• “Naomi in the Living Room.” 

Tickets are $10, free to season subscribers, with performances Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m.

The RCT is located at 8912 Turin Road.
