The Spire Theater and Big Time Productions’ “The British Invasion” series of performances begins October 9th, 10th, 16th, and 17th at 8 p.m. with a one-act thriller showcase featuring the works of British playwrights Mike Richardson and Graham Forbes.
The October showcase consists of several short 1 act plays strung together to create a feature-length production. The scripts that were chosen for the October showcase range in genre from Murder Mystery to Sci-Fi or Twilight Zone style but they all fall within a common realm fitting of the Halloween season with just the right amount of comic relief somewhat reminiscent of Monty Python. None of the scripts have ever been performed before on this side of the pond making them United States premieres. “Mike Richardson also wrote The Man Who Liked Order which premiered last December in Studio Metro,” says director Angelo Giuffré, “I loved the play so much, and it received such rave reviews, that I couldn’t wait for the opportunity to present his work again.” I’m also really excited to introduce some of his colleagues, who are also extremely talented playwrights, to the American audiences.
WHEN: October 9th, 10th, 16th, and 17th at 8 p.m.
WHERE: Studio Metro Underground Theater 316 E 4th St. Jamestown on the back end of The Spire Theater complex across the street from the Red Cross
