The Actress

By Peter Quilter

Directed by Charles LaBorde

Starring Paula Baldwin

A funny and poignant new comedy, The Actress dramatizes the events backstage as a colorful, complicated woman makes her farewell performance, while dealing with the unexpected arrival of her infuriating ex-husband.  Drama and comedy collide as they say their goodbyes, declare their love, roar with laughter, spit insults, renew old battles, and grab a final embrace.

“After all the applause and elation, we walk home alone. And that’s who actors are - the happiest, saddest people you’ll ever meet.”
-The Actress

Not recommended for those under 13.
