This decision results in personal truths being revealed that will change his life forever but also show the power of family, friendship and acceptance.

Stop!… The Play

by David Spicer

Director: Nicole Macdonald

Five neurotic actors, one stressed Stage Manager, a crazed director, an invisible playwright and an escaped monkey are desperately rehearsing the world’s worst play, which keeps being rewritten. Every rewrite is more hilariously terrible than the one before and, although it really shouldn’t, the show somehow manages to go on!
