What You'll Get
Alfred Hitchcock once said, "Drama is life with the dull bits cut out," which explains his penchant for casting crustless sandwiches in every leading role. Chew on exciting art with this GrouponLive deal to see the King's Town Players' production of An Evening of Coarse Acting, playing at Convocation Hall at Queen's University. For $10, you get one ticket for general admission seating (a $20 value). Shows run Tuesday, May 29, through Saturday, June 9, and begin at 8 p.m.
In the final production of the King's Town Players' season, the troupe pokes fun at the very art form they practice with Michael Green's An Evening of Course Acting. The British humorist purposely allows bad dramatics and theatrical mistakes—from set malfunctions to comically awful performances—to run amuck in his series of four short plays. A coarse actor is "one who can remember his lines, but not the order in which they came," quipped Green in his 1964 book The Art of Coarse Acting. To further the self-aware skewering, the directors of the season's first four shows return to the King's Town Players helm to transform each cliché vignette into an uproarious failure.
