March 10, 2023 — Tonight is opening night for the latest production of the Actors’ Mission as they present two separate one-act plays at the Broadway Theater. Tonight’s performance will begin at 7 p.m., with the show also taking place on Saturday night at 7. There is no admission, and a free meal will be served one hour before each show.
According to a press release, the two one-act plays explore complex morality and mortality issues. The first play, Everybody, was written by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins as a humorous modern adaptation of the fifteenth-century morality play Everyman. It examines the meaning of life, as well as what we can take with us at its end.
The second play, No Exit, is an existentialist classic by Jean-Paul Sartre. It is a spellbinding character piece focusing on three newly deceased people dealing with who they were in the world and what will happen to them now.
The one-act plays will also be presented next Thursday and Friday nights with a 2 p.m. Sunday matinee on March 18.
