FronteraFest Short Fringe 2017
Jan. 18, 2017
Body of Work, written and performed by Christine Hoang (ScriptWorks Commission).
An autobiographical, one-woman show that explores how a woman's views on body image, consumerism, cosmetic surgery, family, and friendship evolve through her teens, twenties, and thirties. Directed by Elizabeth V. Newman.
BRINE VI: Uber Educated White Trash, by Stuart Hersh.
In his ninth play for FronteraFest, Stuart provides a list of jobs linked to his education in Massachusetts and Texas with his usual mix of humor and music.
Tea Time, by Raymond V. Whelan.
London. Two bookies need fast cash. Sandy wants bread for business and his date with Laura. Wally wants dough to pay for his father's burial. Lysis the barmaid offers funds from her Uncle Jasper who wants the Boston Red Sox to win the 1986 World Series.
Very Successful, written and performed by Robin Chotzinoff with Shelly Leuzinger.
A person is driven to write songs and perform them in public. She devotes her life to practicing her instrument, developing artistic discipline, and grappling with, and finally dominating, the necessary hurdle of self-promotion. Well, she should, but she doesn’t. Five decades go by. An oddly optimistic story of wasted potential, with songs.
A part, by Rosalyn Nasky.
A movement solo.
