WEEKEND: New Port Townsend theater group to present one-act plays Saturday

Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — Festum Asinorum, a new local theater company, will debut “Scrabble in Babel,” an evening of one-act plays by local author Michael J. Grady, this Saturday night during Port Townsend’s Gallery Walk.

Admission is free to the performances to start at 6 p.m. in the Hastings Building, 118 Taylor St., where patrons will have two chances to see two plays.

First comes “Sur La Maison,” the story of Charli, who just broke up with her boyfriend John, who refuses to get over it.

Charli, after all, needs to get ready for her date with Maurice, their waiter, who is obviously the love of her life.

Hilarity ensues as John and Charli try to come to terms with each other’s struggles.

Paul Rice, Laura Ann Eggerichs and Brandon Chappell star.

Next is “Eralset,” a short play featuring Grady and Frank Iuro.

It’s about Skip and Gabe, guys stuck on an island with nothing to do but play Scrabble.

Their friendship — and their language — grow in unexpected ways.

The plan for Saturday evening is for performances of “Maison” at 6:10 p.m. and 7:10 p.m., followed by “Eralset” at 6:45 p.m. and finally 7:45 p.m.
