Trailer for Christopher Durang's "For Whom The Southern Belle Tolls," part of a collection of one-act plays entitled ONE NIGHT OF ABSOLUTE DISMAY. Directed by Olivia Griego, featuring Jeff Buckner, G. Todd Buker, Joanna Herath and PJ Maske. Photos by Andrew Martin and makeup by Mario Griego.
"Belle" is a parody of Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie, in which fading southern belle Amanda desperately tries to prepare her hyper-sensitive, hypochondriacal son Lawrence for “the feminine caller,” who turns out to be a hard-of-hearing dinner guest invited by Amanda’s ambiguously gay son, Tom.
ONE NIGHT OF ABSOLUTE DISMAY contains other shorts from Chapel Hill to Maine, including "Everything Seems So Plausible at 1 A.M.", "Letter From The Editor, and "Hot Greek Porn."
Feb. 16 - 26 at Common Ground Theatre, Durham, NC.
