Attitudes and Alternatives: A Collection of Contemporary One Act Plays


Attitudes and Alternatives: A Collection of Contemporary One Act Plays Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Attitudes and Alternatives" is a collection contemporary one-act plays, written by Paul Trupia. Since 2005, these pieces have been performed Off-Off Broadway and/or at the New York theatre festivals. The common theme that binds the collection are the real life situations, thoughts, alternatives and in some instances, the choices that we make. The collection is at times humorous, at times serious and at times a fantasy. Attitudes and Alternatives, debates our inner thoughts with reality and considers what is going through our minds as we go through the day. It is what a woman may consider as she gets ready for a date: it is what a man may be thinking as he gets off work for the week-end: it is the wondering thoughts of participants at an office meeting or a middle aged couple walking in the park at the start of summer. In many respects, it is what we think about in the solitude of our daily commute and toss around with as we try to sleep.

Targeted Audience Primarily those seeking performance material Actors Acting Schools and Classes Universities Small Theatre Companies, Local Theatre Groups Play Festivals. Other Playwrights and Directors In addition, there will be those in the 40-50 year old range who will find the content something that they can relate to.

To the actor, acting coach, producer or director, the collection offers an array of characters, ages, situations, genre and range to allow the development and showcase of talent. The real life situations are familiar to many and allow the performers to identify with and interpret the role as they may see it. The collection features realistic dialogue and monologues that have been used as material for auditions. The scripts, combined with acting talent, effective direction and technical support have in resulted in a productions that are creative, entertaining and thought provoking.
