I had the chance to sit down with Notable Acts co-founder Len Falkenstein and a pair of directors (Julianne Richard and Alex McAllister) about their experience and excitement about the two one-act plays coming up as this year’s Acting Out production. Julianne Richard is directing the play Life Goes On, written by Muriel Falkenstein, which deals with reflections of the teenager’s experience of 2020’s digital response to pandemic living. Alex McAllister directs MAD About Van Horne by New Brunswick playwright Ron Kelly Spurles, which highlights a historical moment when a play was being used to attract the attention of the widow of a wealth citizen.
Acting Out Loud: One-Act Plays runs as a twin-bill performance from July 29-31, 7:30pm nightly on the stage at Memorial Hall on UNB Campus. Tickets will be available at the door for 15$ regular, 10$ senior/student/underwaged. Limited seating available. Contact dev [dot] rockwell19 [at] unb [dot] ca to reserve tickets.
