One Acts Preview
March 5 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 pm
Please come to the preview performance of MCWS’s entry into the Maine High School One Act Play Festival tonight, Tuesday, March 5, Community Hall, 7:00 pm. Donations will be taken at the door and there will also be a bake sale that evening to benefit our One Acts.
This year we are presenting a “theater of the absurd” production of Franz Kafka’s “Metamorphosis,” adapted by Steven Berkoff. As Fascism descended upon Austria in the early 20th century, Franz Kafka, an artist, writer, poet, and Jew found himself suddenly deemed revolting and vile by his country, his community, and members of his family. Kafka wrote “Metamorphosis” about a young man who wakes up one morning transformed into a gigantic cockroach. This metaphor is as important now as it ever was, as some populations of people continue to feel marginalized by their communities.
Please come see this piece of “theater of the impossible.” If you can’t make tonight’s performance, please come see it performed at the Festival, This Friday, March 8, 6:00 pm at Bonny Eagle High School.
