Readings of Two One-Act Comedies Adapted from Anton Chekhov Plays
The Moses Gunn Play Company will present play readings of two one-act comedies, based on plays by Anton Chekhov, on Saturday, June 1, 2 to 4 p.m., at the Guilford Free Library, 67 Park St., Guilford.
Veteran Broadway actor Norman Allen is a guest artist for this performance, joining actor Norman Thomas Marshall who also adapted the Chekhov works – “The Harm of Tobacco” and “Swan Song.”
Together they bring the plays to life in this “theatre of the imagination,” which frees the audience to create each play in their minds, without relying on costumes, scenery, props and the like.
Admission is free, and refreshments will be served.
GPG members Gwen Gunn and Norman Thomas Marshall have recently created the Moses Gunn Play Company, dedicated to the memory of Moses Gunn. Together, they present staged and concert readings of dramatic and comedic plays for the shoreline community. Original and well-known plays will be presented as well as little known masterpieces.
