'An Hour in the Theater' promises to live up to its name Saturday
“An Hour in the Theater,” a show consisting of staged readings of three short original plays by Glen Modell, will take place Saturday at Ann Arbor Civic Theatre’s studio space on Ann Street. Total running time is—no surprise—expected to be one hour.
The plays include "The Doctor's Office" (in which Death lurks in the corner, waiting for patients with no health insurance), "The Bucket Under the Sink" (which documents a marital dispute over faulty bathroom plumbing) and "As We Liked It" (which reveals, for the first time, who really wrote the plays of William Shakespeare).
Modell has been active in the local theater community, but is not affiliated with A2CT for this show (he’s renting their space). He has worked with the local Redbud Productions and MorrisCo Art Theatre, as well as the Ann Arbor Storyteller’s Guild.
"For the past 10 years, on and off, I have been involved in the world of Ann Arbor theater production, either running lights / sound or acting in small parts," Modell said. "However, I have been writing scripts for many years, and decided to try producing them. This is my first attempt to do that."
Spirit Uncle Productions presents 'An Hour in the Theater' at Ann Arbor Civic Theatre, 322 W. Ann St., Saturday, July 27 at 2 and 8 p.m. Admission is free (a $5 donation is requested). Details by calling 734-996-1887.
