The Third Great Coarse Acting Show Paperback
Part of the Acting Edition S. series
These plays cover a range of disasters appalling enough to turn any show into a coarse one.
A Fish in Her Kettle by David Pearson: In this disaster, the cast is trapped on stage when the door jams.
Present Slaughter by Jane Dewey and Don Starkey: This play collapses because the leading man cuts his wrist on a glass.
The Vagabond Prince by Simon Brett with music and lyrics by John Gould: Here is a coarse musical with a chorus of gypsies and earthy tavern patrons.
Stalag 69 by Michael Green: This seminal investigation into the relationship between men and war unfolds on an inverted set that collapses completely during the second run through.
Julius and Cleopatra by Michael Green: This Roman spectacular illustrates two laws of coarse acting: everyone in the crowd is hideously deformed and all pain is felt in the bowels, regardless of where the wound is!
