“Opening Night Mutiny: A Fiasco in Two Acts” at The Players’ Ring in Portsmouth

January 25 – February 10, 2019
An original play by Alex Pease & Michael Freitag
Presented by Outcast Productions

“I didn’t say it was a GOOD plan, I said it was THE plan.”

Welcome to the South Shore Playhouse! Where an exhausted cast and crew are trying to premiere their new season despite a few, small, tiny, miniscule setbacks, including but not limited to firing the lead actor in the middle of their dress rehearsal and replacing him with an understudy who’s been studying the wrong script; working with an inflexible, Beckettesque playwright; rewriting that script behind the playwright’s back, and being caught in the act mere hours before the show opens.

A series of escalating hi-jinks results in the outraged author pulling the rights to the show… right as the curtain rises. What follows next is the most daring attempt at “The show must go on” in theatrical history, as the group tries to fall back on a half-written script with the same name. Just one problem: nobody’s rehearsed it, it’s set in space, and the idiot who wrote it is in the front row…

Break some legs! ALL of them.

January 25 – February 10, 2019
Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m., Sundays at 3:00 p.m.
