ARTISTIC DIRECTOR'S NOTES - James O'Leary
Our next “mini-show” is up on our website! “Only a Game” features short plays, stories and a poem about the world of games:
A pencil attracts the amorous attention of a crossword and sudoku when “Two Puzzles Walk Into a Bar” by Donna Hoke.
World War II prisoners of war get covert help from a game in “Passing Go” by D. J. Jones.
A young chess genius spends years “Waiting for the Next Move” by Wayne Faust.
A word-savvy mother creates frustration for her children when playing “Anagrams: The After Dinner Treat” by J. Jackson.
Pool, darts, gambling and friendship combine to create “The Amazing 8-Ball Year” by Dave Ufford.
A package on the doorstep contains an unusual puzzle in “Whimsy” by Jennie MacDonald.
The show is split into three parts so you can listen at your leisure. It features One Night Stand actors Bevin Antea, Dave Brandl, Stephen R. Kramer, Troy Lakey, Leroy Leonard, James O’Leary, Theodore Story, Dave Ufford and Suzanna Wellens, and you can check it out above.
