“All I Really Need to Know I Learned by Being in a Bad Play” by Werner Trieschmann is one of two plays put on by the Froelich Young Actors Guild in 2021. Performances are Saturday, June 26 at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, June 27 at 2:00 p.m.


Based on several disastrous theatrical experiences, “Bad Play” peels back a tattered curtain to examine the process of putting on a show that is less than good. A stuffy narrator (what bad play is complete without a stuffy narrator?) guides the audience through the whole sorry process. We go from the audition—where the director is more worried about roast beef than paying attention to the warm-up exercise, and the neurotic cast pretends to be bacon—to rehearsals—where a passive-aggressive stage manager gives everyone grief. There’s also a special meeting of the Small Part Support Group and a production of Romeo and Juliet set in a Starbucks with costumes of potato sacks and bowler hats.

Produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois
