Peoples Academy's upcoming one-act,
"Scapin." Star-Crossed Lovers & Slapstick Comedy Fill PA's "A Night of One Act Plays" March 16-18

The path of true love rarely runs smoothly seems to be the theme in the upcoming "A Night of One Act Plays" presented by People Academy's Award-winning Drama Club. Performances are scheduled Wednesday, March 16 through Friday, March 18 at 7:00pm in the PA Auditorium. Tickets are available, by donation, at the door.

Featured is a rambunctious adaptation of Moliere's "Scapin." This French classic is set in the 17th century but its vaudevillian slapstick style is ageless. The plot centers around four star-crossed lovers and a faithful servant, Scapin, who wishes to help the young lovers overcome their families' condemnation while also benefiting himself. Mistaken identities, ridiculous complications and witty repartee ensue.

The play has elements of commedia dell'arte, an Italian form of popular comedy developed during the 16th and 17th centuries which used stock characters and familiar plots. Director Marcel Freda clearly enjoys this genre and his student actors share a joyous, spirited approach.

"Scapin" will be presented March 16-18 at 7pm, leading up to the regional One Act Drama Festival on Saturday, March 19.
