The reviews are in!

CPH Post Online gives The Actor’s Nightmare 5 out of 6 stars and #Wonderland 4 out of 6 stars!

[The Actor’s Nightmare is a] majestic dive into the world of the absurd, […] it keeps you entertained will all kinds of acting: drama, comedy, period acting and so on. […] The actors do a great job of making every scene feel genuine, gripping and comedic – you will be left laughing at the outrageous setting of the play.

#Wonderland is a play that will delight the hashtag generation, as the title suggests. […] The charming and absurd world that Lewis Carroll built is present in every scene, and the actors do an extraordinary job of keeping everyone – young and adults alike – laughing with their performance. […] In true vaudevillian style, the scenes flow in and out of each other at a good pace, and you’re left eager to see what other ridiculous surprises remain in store for you.

Your Danish Life profiles two of our very own actors, Rachel Kador and Andrew Whalley, and calls the show

an evening of two side-splitting one-act comedies.

The Plays

The Actor’s Nightmare

by Christopher Durang

Directed by Micah Epstein.

This play was inspired by the well known dream that many people in professional and amateur theatre have, that they go must perform in a play that they have inexplicably never been to rehearsals for, and for which they know neither the lines or the plot.
George is an accountant who wanders onto an empty stage, not certain where he is or how he got there.  The stage manager informs him he’s the understudy, and must go on in a few minutes.  George  has no idea what play he’s supposed to do, and the situation escalates as he desperately tries to follow along with his co-actors.

#Wonderland

by Seraina Nett, Sara Juntunen and cast, inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice In Wonderland

#Wonderland was first presented at the CTC Fringe Festival 2016, where it was enthusiastically received by the audience. Now here is the chance for everyone who missed it the first time to see it – or for those lucky few who attended the Festival to experience it again !

“We’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.” “How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice. “You must be,” said the Cat, “Or you wouldn’t have come here.”
