Play Synopsis: Play On! is the hilarious story of a community theatre troupe that’s been together for years and is now rehearsing ‘Murder Most Foul’, a fictional play written by the character Phyllis Montague. The playwright can’t stop making changes to the script, including adding and deleting scenes and rewriting entire subplots which frustrates the director and performers, who have to open the play in four days. With the endless changes and miscues, the cast and crew are starting to get on each other’s nerves. A theater saying that “a disastrous rehearsal makes for a great opening night” isn’t necessarily so. After our intermission, our audience sees the opening night of ‘Murder Most Foul.’ Since so many things have been changed during rehearsals, the actors forget their lines; entrances are late and early; techies fail to produce vital props and sound effects. Anything that can go wrong does, which provides a madcap climax.
